Daniel Vettori with the ball and Martin Guptill with the bat helped New Zealand beat Afghanistan by 6 wickets, making it 5 wins out of 5 for the Kiwis at the 2015 World Cup.
The veteran bowler picked up 4 wickets to bundle Afghanistan for 186/10. This was a personal milestone for Vettori as he has now crossed the 300-wicket mark in ODIs.
The 36-year-old had some solid support from Trent Boult who picked up 3 scalps. That makes Boult the joint leading wicket-taker at the World Cup along with teammate Tim Southee. Both of them have 13 wickets at the 2015 WC.
Chasing a target of 187, New Zealand made short work of the total. Guptill scored 57 and Brendan McCullum added 42 as the Kiwis reached 188/4 with 6 wickets and 83 balls to spare.
With the result, New Zealand have all but sealed top spot in Pool A while Afghanistan are out of the World Cup.
