New Zealand should have been joint winners of the 2019 World Cup: Gautam Gambhir
NEW DELHI: Former Cricket Player from India Gautam Gambhir feel New Zealand was the most consistent side last year ICC ODI World cup and he deserved to be the joint winner of the tournament alongside England.
In the epic final at Lord's, New Zealand lost to host England in the countdown to the limits after the scores were tied even after the break.
"There should have been joint World cup winners last time around. New Zealand should have gotten that tag of being world champions, but it was unfortunate," the cricketer-turned-politician said on Star Sports' show 'Cricket Connected'.
The 38-year-old former Indian player believes that the Black caps have been putting up impressive performances in the World cup s but have never got the credit they deserve.
"If you see their overall record, they have been very consistent. For the last one World cup , and the World cup before that, they were the runners-up and they have been very consistent.
I think they have been very competitive in all the conditions they have played. We don't give them enough credit, Gambhir said.
