Match Ended   
152/4 (20.0/20)
153/3 (19.1/20)
Pakistan beat New Zealand by 7 wickets
Pakistan have reached the finals. They now wait to find out who will play them in the finals. It is now time for another big game. India will take on England in the second semi-final. Do join us on 10th November at 1.30 pm (8 am GMT) and early on for the build up. From here, it is goodbye and cheers.
Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan says the team played really well and he thanks the crowd for the support they have given them. Adds they had a good start with the ball, the ball was not coming onto the bat and then later on Shadab and Nawaz continued the good work and they managed to finish well too and were pleased with 150. Informs they had a plan to go hard in the Powerplay and they wanted to make most of the first 6 overs. Credits the way Haris has played and says he is an aggressive player. Ends by saying they will enjoy this win but are focused on the finals and they are looking forward to it.
Kane Williamson, the skipper of New Zealand says they were put under pressure but they managed to get back the momentum. States they were outplayed but they are disappointed they did not make Pakistan work hard for their runs. Admits their fielding was not that great, Azam and Rizwan put them under pressure, they could have been more disciplined but Pakistan are deserved winners. Ends by saying there has been a lot of good cricket, they have played pretty well but they were not at their best but that is the nature of T20 cricket.
Mohammad Rizwan is the Player of the Match. He says the conditions was tough for them but they have worked hard and believed in them and he is pleased they came good. Adds they wanted to attack, 150 was a good total but they wanted to make most of the Powerplay and then wanted to bat deep. States they just wanted to work hard and they would get the rewards.
....Presentation coming up...
New Zealand were not up for this! It was a tame performance from them, they were probably 10 to 12 runs short with the bat and then with the ball, their new ball bowlers just did not begin well. Boult especially as he leaked far too many runs in the Powerplay. The Kiwis were also quite uncharacteristic in the field as there were a few misfields and also a couple of dropped catches. They just succumbed under the pressure at the big stage and were beaten by a side which was well and truly better on the day.
This has to be considered as a combined team effort. Their bowlers did brilliantly first up to keep the New Zealand side to around 150. Shaheen was the star but he was supported by all the bowlers and then it was their main two who finally came to the fore in this tournament. Pakistan's best two, Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan lit up Sydney when it mattered the most. The two added over 100 with both scoring half tons. That stand more or less killed the game. The job for the others who came in was quite easy and they did not disappoint.
From losing their first two games to storming into the finals! Pakistan's journey this campaign has been unbelievable, this World Cup has been unbelievable. Pakistan had lost to Zimbabwe and now, they have beaten New Zealand so comprehensively in this semi finals. What a turn around for them. Brilliant.

OUT! CAUGHT! A dramatic ball. Boult serves a full toss, outside off. Rizwan skips down and slashes it to deep cover where the catch is taken. There was a slight chance for it to be called a no ball for the height so the player quickly throws the ball at the bowler's end where Rizwan is run out. The umpires gather and take it upstairs. The replay shows it is a legal delivery and Rizwan is out with Glenn Phillips taking the catch.

Trent Boult To Babar Azam
FOUR Carved away! That is a lovely stroke! Shorter and around off, just lets the ball come to him, opens the face of the bat and then guides it past point. Boult has not begun that well.

Trent Boult To Babar Azam
Confusion but safe! Shorter and on off, Azam slaps it towards Boult who gets a hand to it. It rolls towards mid off. Azam thinks of a run but then bails out of it in time.

Not wided! A slower one on the pads, Babar Azam looks to flick but he misses. It goes to the keeper. The umpire signals it has brushed the pad.

Trent Boult To Babar Azam
A dot to end! Good comeback by Boult after going for a boundary on the very first ball. He could have had a wicket too but that is not the case. The last ball is on a length and around off, it is played to point.

Trent Boult To Babar Azam
PUT DOWN! Devon Conway has put down Babar Azam! How costly is that going to be? He was moving to the wrong side. This is fuller, it starts around off, it comes back in at first, lands and then moves away. Azam looks to drive but it goes off the outside edge. Conway who is moving to his left first has to dive to his right. Stretches his hand out but it hits the tip of the glove and goes towards third man for one. Is that the kind of luck Azam needs? He has been short of runs but today could well be his day.

FOUR! Cracked away! That is the ideal start for Pakistan! Shorter and outside off, Rizwan smacks it through covers and this one races away to the fence. A loosener to begin with by Boult and it is put away.
