Pretty Happy To Get The New Ball: Neesham

Cricket World Cup: Black Caps in top spot after win over Afghanistan

James Neesham starred with the ball as New Zealand defeated Afghanistan by seven wickets in their ICC World Cup 2019 clash at Taunton.

They never recovered and lost wickets steadily before being bowled out for 172 with almost ten overs to spare.

After a consummate performance against Sri Lanka, it was a closer run thing against New Zealand but they managed to get the job done.

"I thought it was an outstanding effort".

"I know how my boys are playing - we've played some good cricket over the a year ago, so we'll try our best again", he added.

"It's nice to have three wins on the board". We have a rest of one week for the other game. However, Naib is not too anxious over Rashid's fitness as Afghanistan's next game is a week away, giving him plenty of time to recover.

"We started really well and then we didn't take responsiblity". But we threw away some wickets with some bad shots.

"We will play our natural game, just go for who we are and why we're here".

The outcome may raise questions as to why Matildas coach Ante Milicic opted to keep the same team who lost 3-0 to the Netherlands. That means no place for key midfielder Elise Kellond-Knight, who has battled leg injuries over the past fortnight.

"There is a lot of work to do to go to the next level".

Afghanistan took the field without leg-spinner Rashid Khan, who was hit on the head when he was dismissed by Lockie Ferguson's bouncer in the first innings. "2015 was our first World Cup and that was just the beginning of cricket for us", said the skipper. But the middle-order generals, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor, put on 89 to snuff them out.

"Every game you play, you set out to win it, and it's great to have three wins in a row to start with", said Williamson.

It was hardly flashy stuff as they nudged singles and picked off the occasional four until Taylor was bowled by Aftab for 48 from 52 balls.

The Black Caps were looking to respond after an underwhelming win against Bangladesh last time out and duly delivered, with Jimmy Neesham the star man when registering his maiden ODI five-wicket haul.

It looked to be a fairly routine start for the hosts, with Hazratullah Zaizai (34) and Noor Ali Zadran (31) putting on 61 before Zaizai was caught at point off the bowling of Neesham in the 11th over.

Neesham was named Man of the Match.
