Cricket Cranes suffered a nine-wicket loss at the hands of New Zealand at the ICC T20 World Cup at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy Stadium on Saturday.

Trent Boult, Tim Southee and Rachin Ravindra spearheaded New Zealand’s bowling attack, dismissing Uganda for 40 runs in 18.4 overs.

Uganda’s batting again folded under the pressure, with only Kenneth Waiswa (11) managing to reach double figures. Fred Achelam, playing his first game at the tournament, contributed 9 runs.

Simon Ssesazi, Robinson Obuya, and Alpesh Ramjani didn't trouble the scorers.

Southee picked 3 wickets for 4 runs, Boult picked 2 wickets for runs while Ravindra picked 2 wickets for 9 runs.

New Zealand’s chase was easy and done inside the power play with opener Devon Conway knocking 22 runs off 15 balls.

Riazat Ali Shah claimed the sole wicket for Uganda, trapping Finn Allen (9) down the leg side to be caught behind by Achelam.
