New Zealand came ever so close to reaching their maiden ICC World Cup but luck wasn’t at their side as they lose to hosts England in the super finale on the basis of boundaries count. The captain fantastic, Kane Williamson has admitted that this defeat is "hard to swallow’.
Williamson conceded it was the most painful way to lose, but he refused to condemn tournament organisers the International Cricket Council.
"What did they win it on, boundaries? While the emotions are raw it´s 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,” Williamson said.
