Fast bowler Lockie Ferguson put on a superb bowling display to help the Black Caps win by seven-wickets over Papua New Guinea in their last T20 World Cup game.


Ferguson took 3-0 from his four overs as New Zealand bowled PNG out for 78, after putting them into bat in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Black Caps then chased achieved the target in the 13th over for the loss of three wickets.


The start of the match was delayed because of rain, but no overs were lost.


At bat Finn Allen was out for no score while Devon Conway made 35 and Rachin Ravindra 6.


Daryl Mitchell with 19 and 18 from Kane Williamson guided the side to the win, which meant nothing in the overall scheme of the tournament.


Ferguson's bowling figures meant he became just the second bowler to concede no runs from four overs in a T20 international, and the first at a World Cup. Saad Bin Zafar did it for Canada against Panama in 2021.


Of the other bowlers Time Southee took 2-11, Trent Boult 2-14, Ish Sodhi 2-29 and Mithc Santner 1-17


It was also Boult's last T20 international for New Zealand.
