NZ win one of the best ever - Swann

Former England spinner and BBC Test Match Special pundit Graeme Swann describes New Zealand's World Cup semi-final win over South Africa as "one of the best" cricket matches he has ever seen.

New Zealand won with a six off the penultimate ball to reach the World Cup final for the first time, and Swann is "thrilled" the co-hosts were able to snatch victory, but says South Africa would have been "more than deserving winners".

They face either Australia or India, who play their semi-final on Thursday at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Listen to live commentary of Australia v India on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra, BBC Radio 4 Long Wave and the BBC Sport website from 03:15 GMT on Thursday, 26 March.
