NZ win ‘Spirit of Cricket’ award

New Zealand’s outstanding display, both on and off the field, in the epic ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 final at Lord’s has earned them the Spirit of Cricket award for 2019.

Kane Williamson and his team were universally lauded for their grace and humility after being denied the 50-over trophy despite tying scores in both the regulation 100 overs and the Super Over, as England trumped them on a boundary count.

Kumar Sangakkara, the president of the Marylebone Cricket Club, one of the creators of the award, saying: “The New Zealand team are worthy winners of this award. In the heat of battle, they displayed a level of sportsmanship that was fitting for such a fantastic final, and indeed tournament.”
