New Zealand will take on Uganda at the pace-friendly Tarouba in what will be the first of their two dead rubbers of this T20 World Cup. Afghanistan pushed the Kiwis out of the Super Eight race from Group C following their win over Papua New Guinea in Tarouba. It meant that the Black Caps have failed to advance from the group stage in a World Cup for the first time in a decade, across ODI and T20 formats.
