“Guys are devastated,” says Kiwi captain Kane Williamson after losing the Cricket World Cup to England

A dejected captain, Kane Williamson told the media that the kiwi players are shattered and devastated after losing the World Cup Final.

A dejected captain, Kane Williamson told the media that the kiwi players are shattered and devastated after losing the World Cup Final. New Zealand lost to England at Lord’s after a tie in the super over. The World Cup winner decided by the number of boundaries rules.

Speaking to media after the match Kane Williamson said, “Congratulations to England. They’ve had a fantastic campaign and they deserved the victory. It’s been challenging; the pitches have been different to what we expected. There weren’t many 300+ scores. I’d like to thank our side for the fight and heart they showed to get us this far. It just wasn’t meant to be today. The guys are shattered; it’s truly devastating.

“We wanted to bat first if we won the toss. We felt runs on the board would be challenging. We may have liked another 10-20 but in a World Cup final, we thought 240-250 might be enough. It was a fantastic game of cricket. For it to go down to the last ball – and then the last ball of the next little match – is tough. But credit to England. There are a lot of positives for us.

Kane being the nicest guy among all, when asked about the overthrow, he said, “That [Stokes’s accidental boundary] was a little bit of a shame, wasn’t it? You just hope it doesn’t happen at moments like that. Perhaps it wasn’t meant to be for us.”

This is the second World Cup final in a row New Zealand lost. The last time they lost against Australia in 2015 at Melbourne.
