New Zealand defeated England by five runs in the Super 8 stage of the 2007 ICC World Twenty20 at Kingsmead, Durban, South Africa.

New Zealand slumped to 31-4 in the sixth over. Brendon McCullum was caught behind for four runs in the first over, while Peter Fulton fell lbw to Andrew Flintoff for a w:duck (cricket)duck in the third over. Ross Taylor was dismissed for seven and Lou Vincent was caught behind for 13. However Scott Styris scored 42 and Craig McMillan added 57 as New Zealand recovered to 164-9 after 20 overs.

England started brightly, with Darren Maddy and Vikram Solanki opening with a 62 run partnership. However Solanki fell for 24 runs, while Maddy was run out after reaching fifty. England lost three quick wickets as Paul Collingwood made just three runs and Kevin Pietersen was bowled by Daniel Vettori for 24. Andrew Flintoff was run out two balls later. Despite 21 from Owais Shah and 24 from Luke Wright, three wickets fell in the penultimate over and England could only make 159-8.

New Zealand will reach the semi-final stage of the competition, while England are facing elimination. England need to heavily defeat India while hoping that South Africa lose their final two matches.
