The Black Caps have secured their second consecutive victory at the World Cup by defeating the Netherlands by 99 runs in Hyderabad.

Key contributions came from Will Young, Rachin Ravindra, and Tom Latham, all scoring half-centuries.

Chasing a target of 323, the Netherlands lost early wickets and despite a valiant effort by Colin Ackermann, who scored 69, they were bowled out for 223 in 46.3 overs. Mitchell Santner was the star for New Zealand, taking five wickets for 59 runs.

New Zealand posted a total of 322-7 in their innings, with contributions from Devon Conway, Will Young, Rachin Ravindra, Daryl Mitchell, and Tom Latham. Despite a cautious start, New Zealand managed to build a strong platform for their innings.

Young reached his sixth half-century before Ravindra, who scored a rapid century against England in a previous match, added a steady fifty to the total. The late surge, led by Mitchell and Santner, allowed New Zealand to accumulate 50 runs from the last three overs.

With this win, New Zealand continued their positive run in the tournament and looked forward to further matches with a close-to-full fitness squad.
