The teams could not be separated at the end of both regular play and a Super Over shootout, so England were handed victory because they had a superior boundary count.

"When the odds were against you in the biggest game of your lives, you simply and stubbornly refused to lose".

"I didn't actually know that", Stead said about the freak fielding incident. But at the end of the day, the umpires are there to rule."They're human as well, as players, and sometimes there's a mistake but that's just the human aspect of the sport".

"We would have been devastated if we hadn't managed to lift that trophy, but looking back over that game, I think it will go down in the history books as the best ever with all the drama of a World Cup final".

Chief executive David White said the team appreciated the offer of a homecoming function but logistics were the problem as players all had different post-tournament plans.

While the original song featuring Sushmita Sen was already a hit, its remake too, was loved and appreciated by the listeners. I learnt to dance with fire fans for the first time within only 3 days, and I must say it was extremely challenging.

Asked during a media interaction at the team hotel whether he would have preferred New Zealand being declared joint winners, Stead was open to the suggestion. "But probably just let the dust settle for a while".

New Zealand Premier Jacinda Ardern praised the Black Caps for putting their all on the line and then accepting the gut-wrenching defeat with grace.

Only once before has a World Cup prefaced an Ashes series, back in 1975, when England again succumbed to the blistering pace of Dennis Lillee and Jeff Thomson, the class of Greg Chappell and typically nuggety batting elsewhere.

"Williamson has shown sports fans and elite athletes alike how to behave with humility, how to accept heartbreak", stuff.co.nz columnist Kevin Norquay wrote. There were questions as to why as significant a match as World Cup final will be decided by a Super Over and by the factor of who has hit how many boundaries.

New Zealand Cricket said they were in discussions with the government about when that would take place. "We have a team that will be spoken of in awe for generations to come".
