    Jimmy Neesham is reflecting on a extraordinary penultimate over to secure a five-run victory for New Zealand over the West Indies at the cricket World Cup in Manchester

    Jimmy Neesham is reflecting on a extraordinary penultimate over to secure a five-run victory for New Zealand over the West Indies at the cricket World Cup in Manchester


    After Matt Henry was hit for 25 runs in the 48th over, the West Indies needed eight from 12 balls with a wicket in hand chasing 292.

    Century-maker Carlos Brathwaite was on strike and Neesham had restricted him to four dots and a two.

    He says it became a game within a game before Trent Boult snared the winning catch at long-on.



    New Zealand remain top of the table with 11 points from six matches - effectively one win from guaranteeing a semi-final.
