New Zealand vs Papua New Guinea Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024: New Zealand won the toss and opted to bowl first against Papua New Guinea in the 2024 T20 World Cup as rain delayed the start at the Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba in Trinidad on Monday. Both teams cannot advance to the Super Eight round, therefore the game has no significance for the tournament.

However, New Zealand would look to try out a few youngsters and lay the foundation for the next iteration of future ICC events. The Kiwis, apart from India, have been one team over the past few World Cups to consistently reach the semi-finals and final stages. This time, however, the side looked over the hill and looked like they had to rebuild as soon as they got home.

According to Papua New Guinea, it’s all about playing against the big boys of cricket and learning and improving. Regardless of the outcome, the match against New Zealand will be another great opportunity for them to test themselves and their position. That said, given the form of Williamson’s men, a great innings or a great spell from a PNG player will set a red flag in the New Zealand camp and potentially cause unrest.
