New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson has opened up on the team’s run in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. New Zealand had a glorious World Cup run in 2019 as they finished as the runners-up of the tournament. However, what irks them the most is how the tournament came to a close.
The 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup final became the most enthralling world cup final that the cricketing world has ever witnessed. England emerged as the champions for the first time in the tournament at Lord’s beating New Zealand in the final by way of scoring more boundaries in the game. It was an astonishing final as the teams weren’t separated after the stipulated overs and even after the super over.
Kane Williamson, who ended up on the other end for the second consecutive time, has now opened up on New Zealand’s campaign in the tournament.

“To determine whether it was a high or a low takes a bit of time. And I’m still trying to work out what it was really” Williamson told Harsha Bhogle on Cricbuzz In Conversation.
“We didn’t get the fruits but upon reflection, it was a pretty spectacular game to be a part of but a really difficult game to understand and get around because you were a part of the game,” Kane Williamson added.
There Are Certain Things You Can’t Control: Kane Williamson
“Like any game, there are things on the outside that you can’t control, when there were so many things that were out of your control, pivotal things that were so late in the match. It meant that you were trying to make sense and it was very difficult to do that” Williamson said.
“And the [boundary count] controversy that surrounded it after that… But at the end of it, you sort of think what you’re here to do in the game, and that’s perhaps to take the game to better places while you have the opportunity to play,” Kane Williamson further said.
“Despite being on the wrong side of the result you still think you played your part and were perhaps able to do that. It was an amazing experience, an incredibly exciting journey if you look at the bigger picture instead of the last couple of minutes. But a real shocker of a game,” Williamson concluded.
