ICC World Cup: New Zealand beat Afghanistan by 149 runs; extend winning streak

New Delhi,18/10: In less than 96 hours after they beat reigning World Champions England, Afghanistan got a solid reality check from a ruthless New Zealand, which recorded a thumping 149-run victory in a thoroughly one-sided World Cup match here on Wednesday.

As a result of this conquest, the Black Caps remain unbeaten in the event so far, taking the top spot again with its fourth straight victory. Chasing a tough target of 289 on a spinner-friendly wicket at Chepauk, Afghanistan could manage only 139 .
