“We Are Still Having Small Conversations About It,” Kane Williamson on World Cup Defeat
England defeated New Zealand on Super Over boundary count in the finals of the ICC World Cup 2019 at the Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. The final produced some exciting cricket to entertain the fans to the fullest. The Black Caps were unlucky on the given days as they fell on the wrong side of a dubious ICC rule. Skipper Kane Williamson recently spoke about the same and said that it has been difficult for them to accept it.
It was a nail-biting pinnacle clash which ended in a tie before progressing to the Super Over. Much to the amusement of the fans the tie-breaker also ended in a draw as England lifted their first World Cup on the boundary count. And because of ICC’s ruling, New Zealand’s hard work went in vain.
Kane Williamson in a recent chat revealed that the whole team still has conversations about that final game. The Black Caps skipper noted that it will take some time to sulk in and added that they will be appreciated for the fight they had put in the final. Further, he accepts the results and mistakes in the match.
“It is one of those things that every day, often, you are having small conversations about it. Guys are still thinking about it, trying to make sense of it. That is a credit to the match we were involved in, but also the result and how it all ended up. One of those things that guys will be talking about for a long time,” International Cricket Council (ICC) quoted Williamson as saying.
“It is one of those games which, no doubt, you will look back on and really have appreciated being involved in it. Then you throw in a bit of context – the World Cup final – and it maybe makes it all that more special,” Williamson said.
Meanwhile, Kane Williamson’s team had a good outing during their tour of Sri Lanka. They came back from a defeat to level the two-match Test series before winning the three-match T20I series by a 2-1 margin.
