Time for the Presentation...

Jun 13, 2024 09:48 IST

Earlier in the day, West Indies were sent into bat first and were reeling at 76 for 7 in the 13th over. Sherfane Rutherford scripted a comeback for the ages as he made handy partnerships with Russell, Hosein, and Shepherd to take his side out of troubled waters. Rutherford smashed an unbeaten 68 off just 39 and single-handedly took his side to a competitive score of 149. Trent Boult was the pick of the New Zealand bowlers with three wickets while Southee and Ferguson snapped a couple. New Zealand started well with the ball but gave away plenty of runs at the backend and were never in the game with the bat. New Zealand have suffered back-to-back losses and will need a miracle to progress into the Super 8s. If Afghanistan win their next game against PNG, that will be the end of Super 8 stage qualification hopes for the Kiwis.
