New Zealand restricted the Netherlands to 151-4 after they sent their rivals to bat before chasing down the target for the loss of four wickets in 19 overs for their second win in three Group one matches.

The defeat means the Netherlands are out of the tournament with three losses in as many games.

New Zealand skipper Brendan McCullum scored 45-ball 65 with three sixes and four boundaries.

Peter Borren made a career best 49 and Tom Cooper finished with 40 not out for the Netherlands.

Sri Lanka and South Africa also have two wins in three Group one games while England have one out of two.

Top two teams from each of the two groups will advance to the semi-finals.
