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.
