‘Emotional roller coaster’: Unbeaten New Zealand after West Indies clash
New Zealand remained an unbeaten side in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup after winning clash with West Indies on Saturday. The Kiwis secured a thrilling five-run win and remain on top of the table. Skipper Kane Williamson’s 148 and 160-run partnership with Ross Taylor helped New Zealand rally to 291-8 after losing both openers for first-ball ducks in the first over. The New Zealanders, the 2015 runners-up, have 11 points from five wins and a washout against India and are one point ahead of defending champion Australia, two ahead of No. 2-ranked India, and three clear of top-ranked England.
