Turning point in Pakistan vs New Zealand World Cup match

New Zealand put 302 on board against Pakistan, who are definitely not good in chasing. And when it comes of 300-plus scores they usually find themselves up against the wall.

And that's what happened during the World Cup Group A match at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy, where the team just floundered as the Kiwi bowlers made merry.

But, the turning point in the game was those three important dismissals that had the Pakistan team reeling on 23-4.

First Ahmed Shehzad fell to Kyle Mills on 23-2 in the seventh over. Then Mills accounted for Younis Khan in the same over and the Pakistan scoreboard read 23-3. In the next over Nathan McCullum scalped Kamran Akmal and Pakistan went down to 23-4.

Those quick dismissal Pakistan were already looking down the barrel.

Man-of-the-Match

It has to be Ross Taylor, who scored an impressive 131 off just 124 balls to helped the Kiwis put an impressive 302 on board. His fine innings was decorated with eight fours and seven over the fence shots.
