Williamson said group match defeat against England does not matter

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson said they can win the ICC World Cup 2019 despite losing to England in the league stage matches by 119 runs.

“Every game throughout the round-robin was worth a couple of points so they were all important," said Williamson. “Obviously a semi-final is worth a few more than two points. But, you know, we'll go into another match and try to implement similar things that are important to our side, that gives us the best chance of success.”

“There are so many strong teams in the tournament, another semi-final that can go either way, two very good sides,” continued Williamson. “But we turn up on the day and anybody can beat anybody. It's important that feet are on the ground and we look forward to that challenge."

Williamson also stated that he doesn’t believe the Kiwis qualifying for the finals would change the number one sport in the country which is rugby union.

“I don't think it will change the number one sport. I'm sure people back home are pretty excited and, you know, another great opportunity to play in a World Cup final,” stated Williamson. “Only every four years do you get the opportunity to play in a World Cup, let alone make a final. But at the same time, we just want to reflect on the good things we did in this match and the things we want to improve on.”

The World Cup’s final match between New Zealand and England will be on July 14 at Lord’s Cricket Ground. The Kiwis currently have +245 odds to win the game while host nation have -303 odds.
