LAHORE - Pakistan made a backdoor entry into the ICC World Twenty20 semi-finals when England upstaged New Zealand by three wickets in the Super Eight stage match on Monday at St Lucia, West Indies. Pakistan registered their only win in the event earlier on Monday when they knocked South Africa out of the tournament and their chances of making to semis depended upon Englands win against New Zealand. Group E winners England were already through to the last four following Pakistans victory over South Africa. New Zealand scored 149 for six and England chased the target in 19.1 overs losing seven wickets. Englands chase was led by Eoin Morgan who scored 40 runs before he perished trying a pull shot against Shane Bond. New Zealands Ross Taylor topscored for his team with 44. Earlier, defending champions Pakistan beat South Africa by 11 runs to knock the Proteas out of the World Twenty20. In a must-win game for both sides, Pakistan were in dire straits at 18 for three but made 148 for seven thanks mainly to man-of-the-match Umar Akmals 51. South Africa, chasing a relatively modest target, were then held to 137 for seven with spin, primarily off-break bowler Saeed Ajmal (four wickets for 26 runs), proving their undoing. The Proteas slumped to 68 for four and despite a fifty from AB de Villiers couldnt break the Pakistan slow bowlers stranglehold. Pakistan got early wicket when Herschelle Gibbs (three) was caught at mid-on by Misbah-ul-Haq off all-rounder Abdul Razzaq. It looked as if the batsman was early on the shot, undone by the slower pace of a Beausejour pitch slower than the one South Africa had grown used to in Barbados. South Africa were now 12 for one and that became 23 for two when captain Graeme Smith chipped spinner Abdur Rehman to rival skipper Shahid Afridi at mid-off. Jacques Kallis was caught in the deep off Ajmal for 22 and Rehman struck again to get rid of JP Duminy after Umar Akmal, running in from long-on, took a fine catch. De Villiers though was still there. But his 53 off 41 balls came to an end when he tried to play an audacious scoop shot off Ajmal and skied a simple catch to wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal to leave the Proteas 101 for five. South Africa, who needed 51 off the last five overs, then saw the experienced Mark Boucher lbw to Ajmal for 12. They eventually got the target down to 17 off the last over, from Ajmal. Four singles followed before Botha was stumped by wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal and that left South Africa needing an impossible 14 runs off two balls. Earlier, a stand of 51 in six overs between Umar Akmal and brother Kamran (37) revived the innings before Umar put on 61 with Afridi (30), whod won the toss. Fast-medium bowler Charl Langeveldt, maintaining an admirable line, took a career-best four wickets for just 19 runs from his maximum four overs. South Africas seamers had early success but the Akmal brothers got the innings going again, Kamran slog-sweeping Roelof van der Merwe and Umar playing a similar stroke for six against the left-arm spinner. Umar Akmal reached his 31-ball fifty in style with a fourth six, driven straight off Langeveldt. But, two balls later, he failed to clear the boundary and was caught by Gibbs off Langeveldt.
