ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024: Day 16 Review

Staff Staff

Day 16 of the 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup had three games taking place, the first between Bangladesh and Nepal, the second between Sri Lanka and the Netherlands, and the third between Papa New Guinea (PNG) and New Zealand.

Here’s how they went down.

Men’s T20 WC 2024: Nepal v Bangladesh 

Bangladesh wrapped up their Group Stage with a 21-run victory over Nepal. In what was a low-scoring affair, Shakib Al-Hassan’s 17-run innings proved key as Bangladesh got themselves to 106 batting first. Leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane was the pick of the bowlers for Nepal as he snapped up two wickets for 17 runs.

In return, Nepal struggled at the top of the order, soon finding themselves at 26/5 after seven overs. Despite a slight resurgence from Kushal Mall (27 off 40) and Dipendra Singh Airee (25 off 31), the task proved to be a bit too much for them. Mustafizur Rahman was the best among the Bangladeshi bowling lot as he picked up three wickets for just seven runs in his quota of four overs.

First innings: Bangladesh 106/10 in 19.3 overs
Second innings: Nepal 85/10 in 19.2 overs

Men’s T20 WC 2024: Sri Lanka v Netherlands

After a disappointing campaign, Sri Lanka’s batting came together against the Netherlands as they cruised to an 83-run victory in this game.

Batting first, Sri Lanka put on a total of 201, with Kusal Mendis leading the way at the top with his 46 off 29. Later in the innings, Charith Asalanka played a handy knock of 46 off 21, and Angelo Mathews finished it off with his 30 off 15.

In an uphill run chase, the Dutch constantly lost wickets and failed to get going. Captain Scott Edwards showed the best bit of batting with his 31 off 24. Nuwan Thushara shone for the Boys in Blue, on the other hand, as he picked up three wickets for 24 runs.

First innings: Sri Lanka 201/6 in 20 overs
Second innings: Netherlands 118/10 in 16.4 overs

Men’s T20 WC 2024: Papa New Guinea v New Zealand 

This dead-rubber contest was closely watched for one reason: it was Trent Boult’s final T20I.

And the left-arm quick did not disappoint when PNG batted first, picking up two wickets while conceding 14 runs in his four overs.

However, the one who really caught the eye was Lockie Ferguson, who incredibly did not concede a single run in four overs while picking up three wickets. These performances with the ball restricted PNG to 78.

In response, the Kiwis got the job done before the end of the 13th over. Devon Conway played a handy knock of 35 in 32 balls and was supported by Kane Williamson (18 off 17) and Daryl Mitchell (19 off 12).

First innings: PNG 78/10 in 19.4 overs
Second innings: New Zealand 79/3 in 12.2 overs
