With figures of 4-1-4-3, veteran pacer Tim Southee made an impression. Meanwhile, Trent Boult, Mitchell Santner, and Rachin Ravindra also got two wickets apiece. After being named Player of the Match, Southee stated:

“It was obviously a pretty clinical performance, nice to get a win. It [the pitch] has been a little tricky, trying to bring the stumps into play as much as possible.”

“Extremely disappointed to play ourselves out of the tournament. You look at the side, plenty of experience and we were not at our best in the first two games. We have a proud record in World Cups in the last ten years and it has now come to an end.

Got a nice break leading into this World Cup. My body is feeling well, I love playing for New Zealand. Dream to play cricket and I still enjoy it, so you never know,” Southee added when asked if he has another World Cup left in him.

With 11 runs in 18 balls, Kenneth Waiswa became the only hitter from Uganda to score in double figures.
