New Zealand players were dejected after the loss as they ended up on the losing side despite the scores being level after 50 overs and after the Super Over.England were declared winners as they had scored more boundaries (in the match and in the super over). While New Zealand scored 17 boundaries in total, England were far more superior in the department, having blazed 26 fours and sixes.Chasing 16 in the Super Over, New Zealand managed 15 but England won because they scored more boundaries in the match and in the Super Over.Even the English players sympathised with their opponents as there was nothing left to chose between the two sides. It was only the new ICC rule which separated the two teams after they played out a World Cup final for the ages.”There was a lot in that game, jeez. I’d like to commiserate Kane (Williamson) and his team. The fight that they show is worth aspiring to. The example that they lead is hugely commendable to him and his team. It was a very hard-fought game,” Eoin Morgan said at the post-match presentation.So close, yet so far. But so much to be proud of. #CWC19 | #BackTheBlackCaps | #CWC19Final pic.twitter.com/577aheGo3iCricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) July 14, 2019Opening batsman Jonny Bairstow also offered commiserations to the New Zealand team.advertisement”Massive commiserations to the New Zealand boys. Edges one way, edges another. The way the guys came back in the Super Over was fantastic, and Stokes was huge. To play at Lord’s is one thing, to play a World Cup final at Lord’s is something else,” Bairstow said after the match.England players were finding it hard to speak after the game as they were overwhelmed with emotions and happiness. But somehow the commentators managed to get some reactions out of the players. This is what they had to say after winning their maiden 50-over World Cup trophy.Jos Buttler “I thought I’d seen everythign in cricket, and that game was just ridiculous. Hard to put it in words. We wanted to take it deep. We didn’t feel like the run rate would be an issue if we were both there in the end. A couple of good partnerships, we’ll chase this down. Trying to put pressure back on New Zealand. Don’t know what happened there in the end. Unbelievable.”Joe Root: “It’s almost written in the stars for Ben. Everything he’s gone through, I can’t be more proud and pleased for him.”Liam Plunkett: “Hasn’t sunk in yet. What a finish that was. Hats off to the Kiwi boys. Over the moon.”Ben Stokes: “I’m pretty lost for words. All the hard work over four years to get here, and to be champions of the world is an amazing feeling. Playing against New Zealand is always a great event to be a part of. They’re a seriously good team, they’re a bunch of good lads. I spoke to Kane, I apologised (for the deflection for overthrows).”Jofra Archer: “Was pretty sure I was going to bowl it. Just had a chat with Morgs (starts chuckling) heart’s still racing, sorry. It’s probably the only tournament I’ve ever won in my life. From the beginning, the guys did so well. Would have been disappointed if we didn’t win. They’ve been a really good family to me.”Also Read | Why England won the World Cup 2019 even after Super Over tie?Also Read | World Cup 2019 Final Prize Money: ENG get USD 4 million, NZ pocket USD 2 millionAlso Read | England win World Cup 2019 despite tied Super Over vs New ZealandAlso Read | Rohit Sharma finishes with most runs in World Cup 2019For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
