New Zealand team almost out of the race for Super 8 Windies beat India by 13 runs and make it to Super 8

New Delhi. Kane Williamson's bet of using fast bowlers in the beginning against West Indies backfired for his team. The Kiwi captain termed modern T20 as a 'cat and mouse game'. By the 18th over of the match, the overs of Trent Boult (three wickets for 16 runs in four overs) and Lockie Ferguson (two wickets for 27 runs in four overs) were over. After this, Williamson had to rely on medium pacer Daryl Mitchell and left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner for the last two overs.

West Indies batsman Sherfane Rutherford took advantage of this and scored an unbeaten 68 off 39 balls. During this, he scored 37 runs including four sixes in the last two overs. This also made a big difference in the result of the match, as West Indies scored 149 runs for nine wickets from 112 runs for nine wickets and then restricted the Kiwi team to 136 runs for nine wickets.

“We are always playing a game of cat and mouse”
Kane Williamson said after the match, 'I think whatever over they (Mitchell and Santner) bowled, runs were bound to be scored. You have to deal with such things. I think nowadays in T20 cricket, the teams that are batting deep… you are always trying to play a game of cat and mouse.'

This is the Super 8 equation for the Kiwi team
By defeating the Kiwi team, the Windies have entered the Super 8. New Zealand has to play against Uganda on June 14 and Papua New Guinea on June 17. It is not going to be easy for the Kiwi team to reach the next round by winning only these two matches. Because the host West Indies has reached the Super 8 with 6 points, while Afghanistan has four points. Afghanistan will reach the Super 8 by winning against Papua New Guinea. This match is to be played on June 14. The Afghan team will reach the Super 8 even if it wins this match or if this match is cancelled due to rain.
