New Zealand began their 2014 T20 World Cup campaign in Group 1 with a victory and a defeat from their opening two matches against England and South Africa respectively.

However, they kept alive their hopes of progressing to the next round after defeating Netherlands by six-wickets in their third match of the tournament.

The Dutch managed a total score of 151 runs in the opening innings. The target was not a difficult one for the Black Caps to chase with the inspiration of skipper Brendon McCullum.

The captain scored 65 runs from 45 balls after the dismissal of opening batsman Martin Guptill, who contributed just nine runs. McCullum's knock included four fours and three sixes before his dismissal in the 17th over.

New Zealand lost four wickets but Corey Anderson (20) and Jamie Neesham (7) remained unbeaten scoring the winning runs by the end of 19th over.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka were handed a shock defeat by England in their previous match threatening their place in the semi-final.

The Lankan batsmen scored 189 runs in total, with Tillakaratne Dilhshan and Mahela Jayawardene hitting half-centuries.

The former scored 89 runs having faced just 51 deliveries, smashing 11 fours and three sixes while Dilshan added 55 runs to the tally.

Losing four wickets on the day, Thisara Perera and Angelo Mathews were the unbeaten batsmen knocking 22 and 11 runs respectively in just 17 deliveries combined.

Nuwan Kulasekara started ripping England apart dismissing Michael Lumb and Moeen Ali without conceding a single run in the first over.

But, Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan (57) combined to register a partnership of 152 runs. The former remained unbeaten to complete his century and scored 116 to help his team score 190 runs thus securing the victory.

Sri Lanka's defeat to England meant that their last game against New Zealand will prove decisive with the winner assured of a place in the next round.

Sri Lanka and New Zealand have amassed four points each, but the McCullum's side are third in the table due to inferior Net Run-Rate (NRR). Both teams will be aiming to secure the last available semi-final spot.

South Africa have already secured their place in the last four stage of the tournament. But, the Proteas' total of six points and NRR of +0.075, means the Lankans and the Black Caps can clinch the top spot with a victory alongside a superior NRR.
