Although the South African team was called Chokers in the 90s, it seems that now the New Zealand team has become deserving of this name. Especially when it comes to the white ball, because with the red ball, the New Zealand team recently won the title of ICC World Test Championship.

Yesterday, New Zealand, who played the final of the ICC tournament for the third time in 6 years, once again lost to Australia by 8 wickets. Due to this, the team had to face these two big defeats in the ICC final.

ODI World Cup 2015 – Australia beat New Zealand by 7 wickets

In 2015, for the first time, New Zealand made it to the ODI World Cup final against Australia. But Australia was able to win that match by 7 wickets.

New Zealand, having lost the wicket of captain Brendon Muckalm in the first over itself, were all out for just 183 runs and Australia crossed this score in just 34th over for the loss of 3 wickets.

Interestingly, New Zealand had not lost a single match before the final. He beat Australia by 1 wicket at his home. But due to pressure in the final, the team disintegrated.

One Day World Cup 2019 – England won by boundary count

How can anyone forget this historic match. First the match was tied and then the super over was also tied. But England was given the ODI World Cup only because they had hit more boundaries.

In this match, however, New Zealand did not fight till the end as New Zealand did against Australia.

Actually, a mistake of Kumar Dharmasena in this match was heavy on the New Zealand team. In Boult’s last over, Stokes ran for the second run and the ball hit his bat and went to the boundary. On this ball, Dharmasena gave 6 runs to England.

This decision was so important that New Zealand eventually lost the World Cup. Had Dharmasena given it a total of 5 runs, New Zealand would have won the ODI World Cup by one run.

Captain Kane Williamson is also sorry about this

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, who lost the finals of ICC (International Cricket Council) tournaments for the third time in the last six years, said after losing to Australia in the T20 World Cup on Sunday that it is a bit disappointing but if you get success sometimes. never fail.

After losing the match by eight wickets, Williamson said, “When you play, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. These are things that can happen any day.

He said, “The way Australia chased the target, they should be given credit. They didn’t give us any chance. This was not our day. However, we are proud of the way we performed.

“You know, if you look at our entire campaign, as we measure, we’re very proud of the way we play and the performances,” he said. When you reach the final and anything can happen.” Williamson said that losing the 2019 World Cup final was more disappointing for him.

He said, “You talked about the final of 2019, if you have time, that can be discussed more.” Williamson praised his team for playing six finals of ICC events in the last six years.

He said, “There are a lot of positive things for us in what you said. We are still striving to improve ourselves and grow as a team. You want to win these competitions. You want success, and other teams want the same.
