ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament attracted criticism as in early stages of the competition, rain played the role of a wet blanket. However, the championship ended with an iconic final which was contested by hosts England and a spirited New Zealand side as both sides looked hungry to win their maiden 50-over World Cup title.

Hard to believe it’s been a week since that incredible Final at Lords. I think it was both the best and worst day of my cricketing life! So many different emotions, but mainly proud to represent New Zealand and play for the @blackcapsnz alongside a great group of mates. Thank you to everyone for all your support, it has been amazing. ????
At the end of the day, England’s much improved boundary-hitting ability crowned them as the champions of the cricketing world. New Zealand’s belligerent opening batsman Martin Guptill seems not to get past that game as he is still in awe of that charming contest.
Calling it both the best and worst day of his life, the 32-year old shared his disappointment on not enjoying a strong World Cup campaign with bat. Nevertheless, he was found incredibly proud to represent a team like New Zealand who fought valiantly in a quality contest. Finally, the Auckland born went on to extend his gratitude to all the supporters who backed his unit through all the tough times.
