Pak Vs NZ : Vettori was the difference between the two teams

With the Kiwis upsetting their Champions Trophy title dream, Pakistan skipper Younis Khan says his New Zealand counterpart Daniel Vettori was the difference between the two teams in Saturday's second semi-final.

Younis Khan riding on Vettori's all-round performance New Zealand beat Pakistan by five wickets to set up the Champions Trophy summit clash against arch-rivals Australia on Monday.

Vettori first shone with the ball with 3 for 43 spell and then scored vital 41 runs to share a match-winning 106-run fifth wicket stand with Grant Elliot (75 not out).

Vettori gave a fantastic all-round performance. He was the difference between two teams," a dejected Younis said after the loss.

Captain Vettori led by example with a man-of-the-match performance, taking two wickets and making 41, part of a match-winning 104-run stand with Elliot, who finished unbeaten on 75, as New Zealand coasted past the 234-run target with 13 balls to spare.

"It's very satisfying," Vettori said. "I think particularly because we've lost some critical players."
