Dubai. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson felt his team could not create many chances in that match while defending 173 against Australia in the ICC T20 World Cup final. Having said that in their first T20 World Cup final, Australia absolutely deserved to be champions chasing down the target. Let us tell you that the New Zealand team lost to Australia by eight wickets at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday. “I thought the effort that was made was excellent,” Williamson said in a post-final press conference. The team worked hard, which was a competitive target. Unfortunately, we proved not to be able to create many chances and achieve those successes. It was a little disappointing. I think we’ve seen situations all round. They have been consistent and the ball skidded a bit but the Aussies were able to chase down their target. They have had a great campaign and totally deserved that (title).
Williamson felt it was difficult to score runs at the start of the pitch as he could only manage 57/1 in the first ten overs. It seemed difficult. About the Dubai pitches I think it was good to have a platform like general characteristics and accelerate from there what we were able to do. I think when you lose, you look at a lot of different areas and you want more of everything. But I think if we look at the overall, the campaign and the effort that went and the performance that brought us here. But when you take the field against a very strong side of Australia, they are playing very well and they did it again tonight.
Talking about his blistering knock of 85 off 48 balls with the help of ten fours and three sixes, Williamson remarked, it was good to contribute. I think you always want a little more when you end up with the end result. You want to make sure that as a batsman or being part of a partnership that has real value and that was definitely our focus. But unfortunately, it didn’t take us far enough today. But there are many good contributions. Our team did its best.
The 31-year-old said Australia had done well enough to put pressure on him, depriving his bowlers of taking crucial wickets when they needed it the most.
“The bowling attack has been a strong point for us throughout this competition. You have to adjust from place to place, team to team and that is the nature of playing in a tournament game. Tonight, you can always look at the little things you want to do a little better.
New Zealand’s next international assignment is a three-match T20I series against India, starting on Wednesday in Jaipur. After the T20I series, the Black Caps will participate in two Tests to be played in Kanpur and Mumbai. (IANS)
