New Zealand face Papua New Guinea in an inconsequential encounter in the 2024 T20 World Cup at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad on Monday, June 17.

New Zealand finally got their first win of the campaign against Uganda in their last match. However, their defeats to Afghanistan and the West Indies had already dented their chances of reaching the Super Eight stage. The win against Uganda only proved to be a consolation for the Blackcaps. Having already been eliminated, Kane Williamson’s men would want to bow out with a win on Monday.

Meanwhile, Papua New Guinea failed to build on the promise they showed against the West Indies, where they made the two-time champions grind hard for the two points. Assad Vala’s men suffered defeats in their next two games against Uganda and Afghanistan to crash out of the competition. They would have their task cut out against a strong New Zealand side.

Brian Lara Stadium, Trinidad Pitch Report 

Trent Boult and Tim Southee got prodigious swing with the new ball in the game against Uganda. They will hope to get similar movement and trouble the Papua New Guinea batters on Monday. The wicket is quite sluggish and run-scoring isn’t easy at all. The average first innings score in seven T20Is is 146. Four games have been won batting first, while three have been won while chasing.

NZ vs PNG Probable Best Players of the Match

Probable Best Batter of the Match:

Devon Conway hasn’t been in great form of late in T20Is. However, he scored an unbeaten 22 off 15 balls against Uganda, hitting four boundaries. There is no doubting Conway’s quality with the bat. He looked good in the last game and would want to build on it against Papua New Guinea.

Probable Best Bowler of the Match:

Trent Boult is all set to play his last T20 World Cup encounter. He bowled an excellent spell against Uganda, finishing with figures of 2/7 in his four overs. The left-arm seamer can cause a lot of problems for the Papua New Guinea batters with the new ball. He would love to end his T20 World Cup career on a memorable note on Monday.
