New Zealand took a big step towards the semi-finals of the World T20 and exacted revenge for the 2015 World Cup final with an 8 run win over Australia.

For the 2nd game in a row, the Black Caps looked to be below par with the bat, subsiding to 142 for 8 after Martin Guptill's explosive 39.

Australia, meanwhile, face a difficult path to the semis, with their match against India on 27 March likely to be a contest that eliminates the loser.

England pulled off the 2nd highest run chase in T20 international history to stun South Africa and get their World T20 campaign back on track.

Chasing 230 in Mumbai, Joe Root struck a composed 44 ball 83 after Jason Roy blitzed 43 from 16 deliveries.
