WEST INDIES OUST NEW ZEALAND BEHIND RUTHERFORD

West Indies knocked out New Zealand from T20 World Cup 2024 contention behind Rutherford with a 13-run victory in Tarouba.

Rutherford tallied a career-high unbeaten half-century.

He will be rewarded for his efforts.

Rutherford combined with pacer Alzarri Joseph and left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie to lead West Indies.

Furthermore, Rutherford smashed half a dozen sixes and two fours for his 39-ball 68.

This enabled West Indies to post 149 for 9 from 76 for 7 in 12.3 overs.

Additionally, these numbers became possible for West Indies after New Zealand opted to bowl in their Group C matchup.

Additionally, Motie returned with impressive numbers of 3/25 as West Indies limited the Kiwis to 136 for 9.

WEST INDIES ADVANCE TO SUPER EIGHT AS FANS CELEBRATE PAST MIDNIGHT

Furthermore, West Indies collected its third-straight win to advance to the Super Eight.

The tournament co-hosts (along with the US) will be receiving more boost back home, as fans in Trinidad celebrated at half past midnight.

West Indies will be more determined to bounce back after it erased the disappointment of consecutive losses in the past by reaching the Super Eight this year.

Additionally, West Indies will write a better script soon after it was ousted in the Super-12 stage of the tournament in the UAE in 2021.

“It was fantastic,” West Indies skipper Rovman Powell said.

“I was sitting there with Nicholas (Pooran) and it was such a beautiful night for someone to stand up and be counted,” he added.

NEW ZEALAND WILL BE NEEDING TO REGROUP AFTER LOSS

Furthermore, New Zealand’s hopes were all wiped out after absorbing back-to-back losses.

Additionally, the Kiwis will be needing a second look at their program after losing to Afghanistan by 84 runs.

New Zealand would seek consistency after it locked up its last four appearances in the 2016, 2021, and 2022 T20 World Cups.

The Kiwis lost both their openers Devon Conway (5) and Finn Allen (26) in the powerplay as they were off to a bad start.
