Kiwis went so near yet so far in winning the final game.
England won the World Cup 2019 trophy for the first time on Sunday evening. Both teams had an equal chance of becoming the new world champions.
The Black Caps came so close to lifting the World Cup title for the first time after both the match and the Super Over shoot-out ended tied. Scores tied in the game after which super over was the decider of the game. England scored 241 runs in chase of New Zealand 241 runs for 8 wickets and both sides scored 15 in their six-ball Super Overs.
After this, the team with the most boundaries scored would be declared the winners so England were the ones celebrating.
Williamson said, “What did they win it on, boundaries? While the emotions are raw its pretty hard to swallow when two teams work so hard to get to this moment in time. We had two attempts to separate us and still couldn’t — it is what it is, the rules are there at the start and they probably never thought they would have to use them.”
Earlier, New Zealanders also lost the 2015 World Cup final against Australia and have never won the tournament.
