After losing the three-match consecutively, New Zealand Skipper Kane Williamson said,
“It’s not ideal to lose three games consecutively. It’s a simple road ahead but not easy. We have to be a lot more competitive than we have been in the last few games. It’s important to learn from our mistakes moving forward. They got the best of the conditions, but they were the better team. The conditions didn’t decide the result, but it did change after 20 overs of their batting, and the cutters became effective on a slower wicket. Their bowlers put us under pressure from the start so full credit to England. We thought we were in the game, and it was nice to be able to pull it back. We were under a lot of pressure in that first half. We needed to build partnerships and we weren’t able to take the game deep. We haven’t had the flow in the batting.”
“There are a number of variables. Today with a couple of run-outs and one down the leg-side, it’s not ideal to start a chase that way. It’s one of those things. There is so much to learn from, but the most important thing is that we need to add value to our side from an individual perspective and perform our respective roles well. There have been learning curves. We have had to adapt too many different surfaces. It’s nice to play some good cricket, been challenged on a number of occasions. If we are allowed the opportunity, anything can happen in the semi-finals and we haven’t played our best cricket yet.”
