The Black Caps faced the Netherlands at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad and registered a huge victory by a margin of 99 runs. Santner dismissed Max O'Dowd, Colin Ackermann, Scott Edwards, Roelof van der Merwe and Ryan Klein to complete his five-wicket haul in Hyderabad.

Batting first, New Zealand piled up a formidable total of 322/7 in 50 overs. Opener Devon Conway laid a solid foundation with 32 runs, while Will Young (70), Rachin Ravindra (51), Daryl Mitchell (48), and Tom Latham (53) gave their best to add runs to the scoreboard. All-rounder Mitchell Santner played an explosive cameo of 36 off 17 deliveries.

Aryan Dutt and Paul van Meekeren picked up two wickets each, but they struggled to restrict the Kiwi batsmen.
