The semi-final between New Zealand and South Africa has everything.

Swashbuckling batsmen who smote the ball for sixes and fours.

Bowlers who took the battle to the batsmen.

Fielders who fielded as if their lives depended on it.

Ultimately, though, it was the catches that were fumbled, runs that were not taken and balls that did not challenge the batsmen and the will to fight till the end that made the difference.

In a nail-biting finish, Grant Elliot hit a six off the penultimate ball to take New Zealand into the finals (scorecard).
