New Zealand secured a 149-run victory over Afghanistan in the 50-overs World Cup, extending their winning streak in the tournament. Three days after defeating defending champions England, Afghanistan briefly raised hopes of another upset when New Zealand’s top order faced a minor collapse. However, New Zealand managed to post 288-6, benefitting from Afghanistan’s sloppy fielding. In response, Afghanistan was bundled out for 139 within 35 overs, giving New Zealand their fourth successive win. Tom Latham, leading the side in the absence of the injured Kane Williamson, praised his team’s performance. While Afghanistan’s spin is usually a strength, their fielding let them down in this match, with several dropped catches.
