NZ chase down target in 32 balls to beat Uganda

Saturday, 15 June 2024 - 9:09

New Zealand 41 for 1 (Conway 22*) beat Uganda 40 (Southee 3-4, Boult 2-7) by nine wickets

Trent Boult delivered searing, full inswing, Tim Southee went at the stumps as well, before Mitchell Santner and Rachin Ravindra tested both edges of the bat with their left-arm spin.

The result was another Uganda collapse, their inexperienced batters simply unable to contend with the quality of New Zealand's bowling.

Uganda were all out for 40 in the 19th over, with only one of their batters - Kenneth Waiswa - having made double figures. They struck three boundaries all through their innings, and were unable to find scoring options, the New Zealand bowlers frequently beating their bat.

New Zealand ran down the target in 5.2 overs, with the loss of just one wicket.
