NZ vs PNG: Trent Boult ends T20 World Cup career on high as Kiwis win by 7 wickets

All eyes remained on Boult throughout the match, but it was pace-bowling partners Tim Southee and Lockie Ferguson who performed better.

Trent Boult has bid the T20 World Cup goodbye. He did so in emphatic fashion, picking up two wickets in his spell, with a yorker being his final ball. He also hinted about a potential international retirement, but that still remains open-ended. As for the NZ vs PNG match, Lockie Ferguson starred with the ball, and Papua New Guinea troubled the New Zealand batters enough, as they lost three wickets while chasing just 79.
