00:18 (IST)

A great day of cricket comes to an end and what a match we saw with Pakistan coming out victorious at the end. They still remain afloat in the tournament and this has led to World Cup coming alive. Suddenly, the favourites England seemed to be standing at the exit door and the unpredictable Pakistan looking ahead to the next round. Tomorrow is a big match again. India play West Indies. Match starts at 3 pm (IST). See you tomorrow. For now, bye from our side. 

00:14 (IST)

Sarfaraz Ahmed, Pakistan captain: Crowd always supports Pakistan. Thanks to them for the support today. We have not been fielding well. Good for us that we are fielding well now. Credit goes to bowlers. Amir, Shadab abd Shaheen bowledwell. Babar and Sohail's is finest batting I have ever seen. Our message was to play all the 50 overs. We are not thinking about 1992 World Cup. Our focus is next match. We are very confident now. 

00:13 (IST)

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson: We have seen that (the pitch react) in our last three games so far but we have been outplayed today.

I think we experienced more bounce today than before. Credit to the way the Pakistan bowlers bowled. They used the bounce to knick a couple of us. We were tough during the middle. But then Babar and Haris took the game away from us. 

We have so many games in the round robin but you're not expecting to win all of them but you want to win most. We'll have to adapt better than today.

00:05 (IST)

Well there you go Pakistan have firmly put the cat amongst the pigeons in this World Cup - England must be looking nervously over their shoulders. Once this team gets on a roll, there is no stopping them and the other teams will be looking at Pakistan as an improving and dangerous improvement.
 

Early wickets and pressure on the New Zealand batsmen meant that New Zealand couldn't reach the total they will have hoped for. Shaheen Shah Afridi was a star-born today and bowled with pace and guile.
 

When it came to Pakistan's batting, there were some nervous moments, but by and large, once Haris Sohail and Babar Azam were in full-flow there was only going to be one winner. Babar anchored the innings whilst Haris Sohail was free-flowing and played another accomplished innings.
 

Pakistan on a roll now, anything is possible.

Babar Azam, Player of the Match for his 127-ball 101

Azam: This is my best innings. This was a tough wicket and the aim was to play long and win it for the side. Santner was bowling well. Our plan was to play out Santner. Fans are always there as support. We get a lot of help from crowd.

FOUR! That's it. Pakistan win by 6 wickets. They remain afloat in the tournament. Top knock from Babar Azam and great support by Sohail from the other end. The spooky similarity between Pakistan's 1992 and 2019 campaign continues to surprise and shock everyone equally. They have beaten New Zealand now. Need to win against Afghanistan and Bangladesh to keep the semi-finals chances alive.

The moment Babar Azam scored his ton!

23:55 (IST)

After 49 overs,New Zealand 223/6 ( Jimmy Neesham 85 , Mitchell Santner 4)

Wicket in the over, that of Sohail, who was run out by wonderful Guptill, who dived with nothing left in the match to remove the left-handed batsman. Pakistan need just 1 to win. The match has gone to the last over.

OUT!  Haris Sohail run out (Guptill) 68(76) 

Take a bow, Guptill. What an effort in the field with just 2 runs remaining to be defended. Babar tapped the ball to off side and Sohail called for a run, Guptill was quickly off to it and took the ball, dived to dislodge the bails. Sohail was short of the crease.

New Zealand vs Pakistan LIVE SCORE, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match Updates: FOUR! That's it. Pakistan win by 6 wickets. They remain afloat in the tournament. Top knock from Babar Azam and great support by Sohail from the other end. The spooky similarity between Pakistan's 1992 and 2019 campaign continues to surprise and shock everyone equally. They have beaten New Zealand now. Need to win against Afghanistan and Bangladesh to keep the semi-finals chances alive.

Their campaign revived by a win over South Africa, Pakistan will continue their battle of survival when they face an unstoppable New Zealand in a must-win World Cup clash on Wednesday.

Pakistan faced severe criticism after their loss to arch-rivals India but their 49-run win over South Africa breathed life into their campaign but the road ahead is a tough one.

With just two wins and three losses, Pakistan are at the seventh spot with five points in six games.

Sarfaraz Ahmed and his men will now not only have to win the remaining three matches, starting with New Zealand, but also hope that the results in other matches favour them to salvage any hopes of a semifinal berth.

While pacer Mohammad Amir has been their biggest star, claiming 15 wickets to top the list, none of the other bowlers have backed him, which has affected their campaign.

Their batting line-up too lacked spark before left-handed batsman Haris Sohail, who was dropped after the opening game, made a strong comeback with a 59-ball 89 to help Pakistan post a challenging 308 for 7 against South Africa.

Shadab Khan and Wahab Riaz also chipped in with three wickets in their last game after Amir once again delivered, accounting for two scalps.

While the batting and bowling units delivered against the Proteas, fielding is an area of concern for Pakistan and Sarfaraz too admitted that the team will need to pull up its socks.

"We have to work harder on fielding. Again we dropped so many catches (against South Africa), some straightforward and some half-chances. All three matches now are very crucial and we have to sort it out," Sarfaraz had said after the match.

New Zealand, on the other hand, have been invincible so far and currently hold the top position in the points table.

And that's it. Two off the second ball and DC have clinched the win. Down the leg stump line and Pant guided it to fine leg region, the fielder cut it off and threw but by that time, two runs had been completed. DC finally wins the contest, after almost giving it up and collects two points. Punjab and especially Mayank must be gutted.
