Last match statistics between nz vs afg t20 world cup 2021
Venue: Abu Dhabi
Afghanistan 124/8 (20 overs)
New Zealand 125/2 (18.1 overs)
New Zealand was methodical. That is probably unsurprising given that they have already reached the semi-finals of four World Cups in succession (counting ODI World Cups).
They needed a win to guarantee their position in the last four, so they came up with a game-winning powerplay. Through the opening six overs, Kane Williamson rotated his three quick bowlers - Trent Boult, Tim Southee, and Adam Milne, each getting two. During the fielding restrictions, they each took a wicket and helped keep Afghanistan to fewer than four runs each over.
Afghanistan recovered thanks marginally to a half-century from Najibullah Zadran, but except from one 19-run over against Mitchell Santner, they never really got going after that disastrous start. They spluttered their way to 124 for 8 and defending it was always going to be a chore.
New Zealand went to 45 for 1 at the end of their powerplay, and then Kane Williamson and Devon Conway walked to the finish, their undefeated 68-run stand eating up 56 balls as the team triumphed with 11 balls to spare.
Afghanistan scored 37 runs in the final six overs, losing four wickets. Trent Boult had two dismissals in his final over to finish with the best stats in the game, 3 for 17.
