T20 WC NZ vs Pak: Daryl Mitchell’s Fifty Powers New Zealand To 152/4


Sydney: Daryl Mitchell’s unbeaten 53 from 35 deliveries helped New Zealand to reach a total of 152/4 in the semi-final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup against Pakistan at the SCG in Sydney on Wednesday.

New Zealand had lost three key wickets for just 49 runs when Mitchell joined skipper Kane Williamson at the crease. Mitchell went on the charge straightaway whereas Williamson played the second fiddle, as the duo put on a stand of 68 runs for the fourth wicket.

Williamson departed for 46 from 42 deliveries just when their innings entered the death over but Mitchell carried on and made his way to a superb knock of 53* from just 35 deliveries to help New Zealand cross 150.

For Pakistan, Shaheen Afridi was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 4-0-24-2 to his name. But the entire unit delivered a disciplined performance on a used track to restrict the Kiwis to a chaseable target.
