New Zealand have won the toss and chose to field against Uganda at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy stadium in Tarouba, San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago during the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 on Friday.

Both teams are already out of the race for Super 8 since Afghanistan and West Indies have made it to the next round from Group C.

New Zealand have always remained consistent with their impeccable performance since 2015 as they reached all six successive tournament semi-finals until this T20 World Cup. It is beside the point that they could not win a single trophy. 

“We are gonna have a bowl, wanna have a look first with the bowl. We are going with the same side as the last match. Frustrating not to get the opportunity not to get through but we have to focus on what’s in front of us,” New Zealand captain Kane Williamson said at the toss.


New Zealand (Playing XI): Devon Conway(w), Finn Allen, Rachin Ravindra, Kane Williamson(c), Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson.

Uganda (Playing XI): Ronak Patel, Simon Ssesazi, Robinson Obuya, Riazat Ali Shah, Alpesh Ramjani, Dinesh Nakrani, Kenneth Waiswa, Brian Masaba(c), Fred Achelam(w), Juma Miyagi, Cosmas Kyewuta.
