Kane Williamson Says World Cup Loss Is A Bad Dream, AB de Villiers Commiserate
Surely, it would be tough to take such a loss in the final of the world cup. When you did everything but just a deflection of the bat or the rule of winning on the count of boundaries is letting you drop a golden chance of being the world champions is always a tough task to sink in. Meanwhile, Kane Williamson expresses his voice on it while AB de Villiers expresses his sympathy to the Kiwis.
New Zealand scored 241/8 after winning the toss and opting to bat at the Lord’s. England’s run chase ended at 241, all out off the last ball of the match. The game went into the super over where both the teams scored 15 and tie stood as it is at the end of 12 balls.
ICC’s rule says that in case super over too fails to break the tie then the team that hit more boundaries (fours and sixes combined) will win the game. The hosts won the World Cup as they hit 26 boundaries as compared to 17 by the Kiwi batsmen.
The entire cricket fraternity wished England for winning their maiden World Cup title and also expressed their displeasure on Twitter for ICC’s rule of considering more boundaries a legitimate measure. However, New Zealand might not have won the recently concluded ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 but have allured a lot of respect.
Kane Williamson speaks on World Cup final loss vs England:
Speaking in a recent interview posted on the official Twitter handle of ESPNcricinfo, Williamson compared New Zealand’s loss in the final to a “bad dream” and talked about how he has been tacking with it.
“I sort of explained it to few people, it’s like it sort of hits you in waves. You feel like, 10 minutes, you forget about it and then you make little jokes and then it comes back to you and you go… ‘that just happened’ and ‘did that just happen’,” Williamson was quoted as saying.
I know the feeling😳
