Black Caps on verge of going out at T20 world cup

10:46 am on 30 September 2012

The Black Caps are on the verge of being knocked out of the Twenty20 cricket World Cup after losing their second super eights match against England last night.

Having been set 149 to win by the Black Caps, England were always in control with Twenty20 specialist Luke Wright the standout player - providing a powerful 76 off just 43 balls, including five sixes.

The Black Caps captain Ross Taylor was full of praise for Wright, who he says was the match-winner.

Taylor says they will now look to win against the West Indies in their remaining super eights game and hope Sri Lanka can beat England if they are to have any chance of making the semi finals.

In the group's other game Sri Lanka comfortably beat the West Indies.
