Kane Williamson shone with the bat as his unbeaten knock of 79 off 99 deliveries helped New Zealand maintain their winning streak at the ongoing World Cup.
Chasing a mere target of 173, the Black Caps got off to a shaky start with Martin Guptill returning to the pavilion on the first ball.

New Zealand achieved the target on loss of three wickets in 32.1 overs
