The Black Caps have crushed Uganda by nine wickets in Trinidad and Tobago to score their first win at the T20 cricket World Cup.

The result comes too late for the Black Caps, who can't advance to the knockout stage after losing to Afghanistan and the West Indies in their two opening games.


New Zealand dismissed the African side for just 40 runs as the kiwi side won by nine wickets, scoring 41-1 in reply. The 88 ball victory is the biggest for New Zealand in T20 cricket.

The highest scorer for Uganda was Kenneth Waiswa with 11. The top three batters were all dismissed for ducks.

Tim Southee finished with the remarkable figures of 3-4 from his four overs. Trent Boult had 2-7, Mitchell Santner 2-8 from 3.4 overs, Rachin Ravindra 2-9 from three overs and Lockie Ferguson was expensive with 1-9.

It was the first time a national side had three bowlers go for until 10 runs while bowling a full compliment of four overs.

At bat for the Black Caps Finn Allen made 9 from 17 balls, Devon Conway was 22 not out from 15 while Ravindra made one run from one ball.

The Black Caps play Papua New Guinea on Tuesday.
