India head coach Ravi Shastri on Wednesday praised New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson’s composure during the recently concluded ICC Cricket World Cup final at Lord’s in London, which the Black Caps lost by a slender margin.

On 14 July, the Kiwis lost the final match to England on boundary count after both the 50 overs, as well as the Super Over ended in ties.

Shastri took to Twitter to heap praise on Williamson saying that the latter’s silence since the match was remarkable.

“Your composure and dignity viewing the sequence of events was remarkable. Your dignified grace and silence 48 hours since is simply remarkable. We know you have one hand on that WC. You not just Kane. You Kane and Able. God bless,” Shastri tweeted.

Earlier, Williamson had said that the loss against the hosts based on the boundary countback rule was hard to swallow.

“I never thought I would have to answer this. It’s pretty hard to swallow when two teams have worked really hard to reach this point. It’s what it is, the rules were there at the start, no one thought it would come down to this,” Williamson had said after the match.
