Following Kane WilliamsonNew Zealand’s eight-goal winner over India in the final of the World Test Championship in Southampton, Australia Trial skipper Tim Payne had to apologize to the Black Hats for the prediction earlier that they would be comfortably defeated by Virat Kohlicountry
New Zealand received $ 1.6 million (approximately 12 kroner), along with the ICC Test Championship Mace, to win the rain-darkened final of the first test championship.
Payne, 36, had said before the final that India “would win quite comfortably if they played somewhere close to the best”.
“We’re all confused. I came across a few kiwi fans, so I thought I’d come on air and eat a modest pie,” Payne told Newstalk ZB.
“I thought New Zealanders played exceptionally. It’s always a pleasure to watch them go that way. For such a small nation – I’m from Tasmania, which is obviously our smallest resource country, and we’re hitting our weight – – so I certainly respect what kiwis do on the international stage, “Payne said on Friday.
Payne praises New Zealand bowler Kyle Jamieson for rejecting both Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Koli at the start of the reserve day to put India on its feet.
“They’ve done well under Kane (Williamson) since they last played us … added the great Kyle Jamieson, who was exceptional on day 5 or 6, and quality opening dough, which is Devon Conway, so they’re always up. improve and seem to always find these good cricketers.
“They have added a large, tall fast bowler that rarely misses its length, supplemented by Trent Bult and Tim Southy. “The height from which he descends obviously worries batsmen around the world,” said Payne.
