Expert analysis: Root, McClenaghan drive thrilling wins

England's Joe Root hit a sparkling 83 to lead his team to the highest ever run chase in World Twenty20 cricket and an epic two-wicket victory over South Africa in Group One.

All rounder Mitchell McClenaghan, recalled after missing the opening game when a spin-heavy attack skittled India, took three for 17 as New Zealand gained revenge for defeat in last year’s World Cup final with an eight-run win over Australia.

Ian Chappell and Ajith Agarkar examine both wins.
