The Kane Williamson-led New Zealand are all but out of the T20 World Cup 2024.

New Zealand slumped to a 13-run defeat at the hands of co-hosts West Indies on Wednesday night in Trinidad. Having lost to Afghanistan by a huge margin already, this loss has left the Kiwis on the brink of elimination from the race for the Super 8 round in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

This was a virtual must-win game for the Black Caps against Rovman Powell’s side, which they lost by a close margin at the Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba.

West Indies sealed their spot in the Super 8 round as this was their third win in the group stage in three games. Afghanistan have recorded two victories in two matches and have matches left against Papua New Guinea and West Indies. Rashid Khan’s side is expected to thrash PNG and enter the Super 8 stage, which will knock Kane Williamson’s team out of the competition.

Against West Indies, the Black Caps, who consisted of veteran pacers Trent Boult and Tim Southee, were blown away by a fierce attack from left-handed batter Sherfane Rutherford. Rutherford blasted 68* runs off 39 balls and took his side to 149 after West Indies were reeling at 112/9.

In their chase, the Kiwis couldn’t get going as fast bowler Alzarri Joseph and left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie combined to take seven wickets. Eventually, they fell short by 13 runs.

New Zealand are all but out of the Super 8 race in the T20 World Cup 2024.

This is how fans reacted to New Zealand’s loss against West Indies:
