Auckland: Scoreboard of New Zealand vs South Africa, Semifinal 1 of the ICC World Cup 2015 played at Eden Park here Tuesday.

Grant Elliott struck a six off the penultimate to lift New Zealand to a four-wicket win over South Africa in a cliff-hanging match Tuesday which carried it into a Cricket World Cup final for the first time, ending its run of defeats in its six previous semifinals.

Earlier,David Miller blazed his way to a 18-ball 49 as South Africa set New Zealand a daunting target of 298 runs in 43 overs in the rain-curtailed first semifinal.

Opting to bat, South Africa notched up 281 for five, but the target was revised under the Duckworth/Lewis method after seven overs each were deducted per side following a two-hour rain interruption at Eden Park.

Skipper AB de Villiers made an unbeaten 65 off 45 balls, while Faf du Plessis top-scored with a 107-ball 82, but it was Miller's innings that gave Proteas the much-needed impetuous towards the end.
