So West Indies defeat New Zealand through the Super Over. New Zealand are out of the competition. West Indies look good for the Semi Finals but if England defeat Sri Lanka, then two of the three teams - SL, Eng and WI will make it to the Semis, all depending on the Net Run Rate!

Tim Southee to bowl the Super Over for the Kiwis. New Zealand will do a tit for tat by bringing in their substitute fielders. All the slow fielders to be replaced with the likes of Watling, Williamson etc!

Over 19.6 MN Samuelsto DAJ Bracewell, 1 run + Bracwell RUN OUT!
Super Over folks! Brilliant direct throw from the fielder under pressure by Dwayne Smith (who is on for Rampaul)! It was a full toss and Bracewell flicked it through mid wicket and a desperate second run was attempted. Bracewell was struggling and even without a direct throw would have been run out!
So that match for now is a TIE but the winner will be decided through the Super Over.

Over 18.6 SP Narineto LRPL Taylor, 1 run
Goes back and nudges the carrom ball behind point for one. So New Zealand would need as many as 14 runs to win from the final over. What a fabulous over from Sunil Narine! If England goes on to lose to Sri Lanka, then West Indies will be in Semis if they can win the match from here.
