It is hard, it really is. Kane Williamson stated that he woke up wondering it was a bad dream, but it wasn’t to be. And it is one of those bad dreams which will always haunt him for life.
New Zealand didn’t have the rub of their green on their side. To go down on the basis of boundaries count in the final of the World Cup has to be the most heartbreaking thing in the career of a player. And the eleven New Zealand players which had taken the field against England will always need to cope up with the same.

Kane Williamson said while talking to ESPN Cricinfo, “I sort of explained it to a few people, it’s like it sort of hits in waves. You feel it, 10 minutes, you forgot about it, and you make little jokes and then it comes back to you and you go, ‘that just happened and did that just happened’. Is that real? I woke up wondering it was a bad dream and it wasn’t, was it?
"I woke up wondering if it was a bad dream."
