    0.5  Stuart Broad to Andre Flecther, , No Ball. He walks across his stumps trying to paddle it away, but misses it. And the keeper's appealing! There was a sound as the ball passed the batsman, and the umpire is unmoved. Replays show it was off the pad. Good call.  (0)

    19.2  Dwayne Bravo to Adil Rashid, The batsman lines up for a big slog over cow corner, but gets an inside edge, which scoots past the stumps and the keeper for four runs! The bowler has a wry smile, if the batsman keeps that up, it won't be too long till he's back in the pavillion...  (4)

    Dwayne Bravo showcased his all-round skills with the ball this time by breaking down the English batting. England's lower order saved them from a huge loss as Adil Rashid had a good partnership with Swann and Collingwood. This victory means West Indies are still in contention. England, on the other hand, needs to win its next match to qualify directly.

    Good performance by the bowlers to defend it, even though the real credit goes to Gayle and Simmons

    Chasing a big target of 193, Pakistani openers carried their team as same as Australian openers. Kamran Akmal scored the second century of the tournament, which ended on a winning cause. With this win, Pakistan is still in contention for Semis. Australia can't qualify for the latter stages, that's almost sure from the result.

    19.6  Shahadat Hossain to Daniel Vettori, , No BallGood ball, he goes for the cut, it's too close to cut, he's inside edged it, and it misses the stumps by a whisker! The keeper tidies up and there is no run. Phew that was close.   (0)
    19.6  Shahadat Hossain to Daniel Vettori, Drilled away through midwicket for four, that shot had some power behind it!  (4)

    Shahadat Hussain, who repeated the performance against Australia, again turned the game, but this time towards the opposition as he bowled a no-ball which was supposed to be the last ball of the match. Next ball, Daniel Vettori made no mistake to hit that ball for four. New Zealand has qualified for the Semi-Finals from Group E. This means, Bangladesh vs Pakistan would be a virtual quarterfinal, whosoever wins would progress. Brendon McCullum and James Franklin's partnership was crucial for New Zealand to chase this particular target.

    1. Make sure you pick 11 players, Which must include a wicketkeeper:wk: and at least 5 bowling options:bwl:.
    2. Managers can only pick from their squads only. No Outside players are allowed.​

    Apologies for the delay as I was kind of busy and lazy :D(yes both) to run the exciting contest between the teams. Now it's time to decide which team would go into the semis of this great tournament.
