reached a respectable score
At one time it seemed that the West Indies team would not even be able to cross the 100-run mark. But this did not happen. Shane Rutherford played a brilliant innings for West Indies and took the team's score to 149 runs. He played a brilliant innings of 68 runs in 39 balls. During his innings, he hit 6 sixes and 2 fours. His strike rate was around 174. Trent Boult bowled brilliantly for New Zealand and took 3 wickets. Tim Southee and Lockie Ferguson took 2-2 wickets each.

Now it was New Zealand's turn to chase the target. New Zealand opener Devon Conway flopped in this match. He was out after scoring 5 runs in 8 balls. Finn Allen, who came with him, looked in good form. But he lost his wicket after being caught out by Russell on 26 runs. Glenn Phillips played a good innings of 40 runs. But could not take the match forward. In this way, the New Zealand team could score only 136 runs.

New Zealand could be out of the World Cup!

New Zealand's team may be out of the World Cup. It has lost both the matches out of 2. It does not have a single point in its account. Afghanistan already has 4 points in Group C and its net run is also in plus. If Afghanistan wins even one of the remaining matches, it will reach the Super 8. In such a situation, New Zealand's dream will be shattered. If Afghanistan does not win both the matches, then New Zealand will have to win both the remaining matches by a big margin. Which will prove to be difficult for it.
