CWC 2019: McCullum feels New Zealand can lift the trophy
Former New Zealand captain and player Brendon McCullum feels that New Zealand can lift the World Cup this time and he is happy with the way, the team is playing in the tournament so far.
New Zealand are having a good World Cup so far in England. They are in the driver seat in the race to the semi finals with a strong position. The team has earned thr attention of everyone right from the start of the tournament and now they are in the arguments for the favourites of the tournament.
Former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum also feels the same thing and in a recent interview he said that this time New Zealand have more chances of lifting the World Cup.
“Some people say underdogs but probably they don’t see New Zealand play that often. Broadcast-wise they are not seen as often as some of the other teams and hence they are out of sight out of mind thing,” McCullum said to AFP.
“The World Cup historically for New Zealand has always been very, very good. I think we are second in most wins behind Australia in World Cup matches.”
“I think the weather didn’t help but the back end of this tournament hopefully we will see some really exciting cricket and clear skies,” said McCullum.
“To me it’s fair to say you are probably looking at England, India, Australia and New Zealand (in the semi-finals). Whoever is able to seize that big moment when it does arise? I’m sure New Zealand will be confident they can,” he added further.
