CWC 2019: New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern opens up about their loss in World Cup final

It was a disappointing end to the CWC 2019 for New Zealand’s cricket fans. Kane Williamson led Kiwis were so close yet so far from their first World Cup title.


On Monday, New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern expressed her views regarding their loss in the final match. For Ms. Ardern, it was the most exciting cricket match she ever watched.

Ms. Ardern said, “I think probably like a lot of New Zealanders I’m still feeling quite traumatized by that match. It was an incredible game, I can’t recall seeing a game like it and I think it will just go down in history for just being a remarkable game of cricket.


But regardless of that final outcome I just feel incredibly proud of the Black Caps and I hope every New Zealander does because they played remarkable cricket across the course of that tournament, and they certainly did in that last match.

Ms. Ardern wants Heroes’ welcome for New Zealand cricketers

We really would like to honor them, not only for their superb skills but also for their sportsmanship and the graciousness with which they accepted that loss.“, she added.

Ms. Ardern mentioned that she synced with Auckland Mayor Phil Goff on how to welcome the New Zealand cricketers back home.

Of course, they’ve been away for some time and just whether or not they’ll all be in one place when they arrive… there are a few conversations to be had but there have been some phone calls already.“, said Ms. Ardern.
