McCullum proud of the Kiwi side after World Cup

The New Zealand cricket team has recently returned home after the most heart-breaking finish to their World Cup dream in England last week. The Black Caps were robbed of the world title after the game was decided on the number of boundaries because of a tie on two occasions.

Former skipper Brendan McCullum has said that the current side should be proud of what it achieved in the World Cup this year as it should be the character of a player or a team which should matter at the end but not the result itself.

“It’s a bit different from 2015 but I thought they've handled themselves magnificently in the aftermath of that result. Yes, it would've been lovely to have been a World Cup champion, but I've always said the game doesn't define you but it's the person and character you are. I was so pleased with how our team handled that loss, also the success throughout that tournament,” said McCullum.
