Boult apologizes for New Zealand’s World Cup loss
New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult apologized for New Zealand’s World Cup loss after he landed in New Zealand along with a set of players from England.
New Zealand had a heartbreaking ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 final against England on Sunday. Still, there are many arguments and debates going around the results of the final.
After becoming the runners-up a set of New Zealand players arrived in New Zealand. After arriving at New Zealand, New Zealand left-arm pacer Trent Boult apologized for every people who stood by them in the entire tournament.
“I wish it would, so we can all get over it but it’s one of those things that we probably won’t get over for a long time. We’ve just been on a plane 15 hours and there were a lot of Kiwis saying ‘we felt for you’. I didn’t really know what to say.”
“Obviously, we’re all hurting and we’re sorry for letting everyone down. I just want to get home, walk my dog along the beach and try to forget about it but it’s gonna be a hard one to swallow for the next couple of years.”
When talking about the catch he took and ended as a six since the fast bowler touched the boundary rope, he said Guptill was shouting at him about the rope but he was unable to hear what he said and ended up as a misery.
“The priority in that situation is on the ball itself, so that was all I was worried about. It was silly of me not to know where the rope was. It was similar to the catch against the West Indies earlier in the tournament but they’re quite quirky boundaries over there [at Lord’s]. They’re not circles, they’re kind of octagons and squares and all sorts of things.
“You can imagine the feeling when my left shoe hit the cushion and it was too late to throw the ball to Marty [Guptill]. There were probably 27,000 intoxicated Poms in there screaming as the ball went up, so I couldn’t hear anything Marty was saying.”
