In the 29th game of the ICC World Cup, New Zealand edge past West Indies by five runs as late heroics from Carlos Brathwaite go in vain.
Kane Williamson scored a valiant 148 as New Zealand posted a total of 291 while batting first. The Blackcaps kept chipping in with the wickets at regular intervals.
Brathwaite’s scintillating knock of 103 along with the lower order almost got his team over the line. However, he perished while trying to hit a six and was caught by Trent Boult, few inches inside the boundary.
