New Zealand won their third consecutive match in the World T20 thanks to a 22-run victory against Pakistan at Mohali on Tuesday.

Over 19: 9 runs off the over. Pak 151/5

Over 18: 5 runs and a wicket off the over. Pak 142/5

17.4 Milne to Umar Akmal, OUT

Akmal’s struggling innings ends, and has done his side quite some damage in the process. Another full toss on middle, he just lobs it in the hands of long-on. Guptill takes an easy catch.

Over 17: 8 runs off the over. Pak 137/4

Over 16: 6 runs and a wicket off the over. Pak 129/4

15.1 Sodhi to Shahid Afridi, OUT

Afridi came to the pitch and got under it too, just not enough elevation as the lofted drive flies down to long-off. Looks like it still has enough to clear Anderson but he stretches out his long arms to take a stunner.

Over 15: 8 runs off the over. Pak 123/3

Over 14: 11 runs off the over. Pak 115/3

Over 13: 8 runs and a wicket off the over. Pak 104/3

12.2 Santner to Ahmed Shehzad, OUT

A horrible shot, but plenty of pressure was built up. Shortish on off, Shehzad goes deep and flick-pulls but doesn’t get enough power.

Over 12: 5 runs off the over. Pak 96/2

Over 11: 2 runs off the over. Pak 91/2

Over 10: 6 runs off the over. Pak 89/2

Over 9: 4 runs and a wicket off the over. Pak 83/2

8.2 Santner to Khalid Latif, OUT

Latif has fallen to the pressure more than anything. Santner drags his length shorter, anticipating the big slog from Latif. Latif shimmies down but fails to get anywhere close to the pitch, lofted straight down the throat of Elliott at long-on. Fantastic comeback.

Over 8: Good over by Ish Sodhi as 3 runs came off it. Pak 79/1

Over 7: 10 runs off the over. Pak 76/1

Over 6: 5 runs and a wicket came in the over. Pak 66/1

5.3 Milne to Sharjeel Khan, OUT

Full and wide outside off, Sharjeel looks for a lofted drive but the ball scoops up off the outside half. Guptill backtracks to take an important but easy take.

Over 5: 10 runs off the over. Pak 61/0

Over 4: 18 runs off the over. Pak 51/0

Over 3: 9 runs off the over. Pak 33/0

Over 2: 9 runs off the over. Pak 24/0

Over 1: Good start by Pakistan as 15 runs came off the over. Pak 15/0

New Zealand reached 180/5 at the end of the innings against Pakistan in their World T20 encounter at Mohali on Tuesday.
