After the defeat against Hyderabad, Williamson admitted that he was tired of losing in the Super Over. He said, “I am tired of staying second in Super Over. Whenever a super over happens, I feel that there is a lot to be learned while chasing a goal. In the game of cricket, there are very few matches which remain tied. “
Got to learn a lot
Williamson said that his team had a lot to learn from the match against Delhi and now the team would like to move past this defeat. He said, “That’s why it is very interesting.” I am sure that it was a great match to watch. A lot of positive things came out. We will go to Delhi very soon with a new focus. “
Washed with the World Cup
Under Williamson’s captaincy, New Zealand made it to the finals of the 2019 World Cup where England defeated them in the boundary count in the Super Over and the Kiwi team’s dream of winning the first World Cup was shattered.
