It turned out to be yet another memorable day in business for New Zealand, who have become a team to beat in the World Cup 2023. The Kiwis notched up 288 runs in their quota of 50 overs, batting first. Healthy contributions from Will Young (54), Rachin Ravindra (32), Tom Latham (68), Glenn Phillips (78) and Mark Chapman (25) aided the side to muster an above-par total at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
In pursuit of a demanding total, the Afghanistan top order failed to provide a decent start to the team. The middle-order tried to recover from the early shocks, but the New Zealand pace attack was too hot for Afghanistan to handle last night.
Rahmat Shah and Azmatullah Omarzai did put in efforts to lower the margin of defeat and show some restraint, however, it was just one-way traffic for New Zealand in Chennai.
Mitchell Santner and Lokie Ferguson scalped three wickets each and Trent Boult got two in his bag while one apiece went in the hands of Rachin Ravindra and Matt Henry.
On the back of a sublime bowling effort, Afghanistan was bowled out a mere 139 runs in 34.4 overs. New Zealand registered a convincing victory by 149 runs.
