In the end, England claimed the cup, New Zealand the hearts

Ambivalent Morgan’s New Zealand counterpart Williamson felt ambivalent: “It is pretty hard to swallow when two teams have worked really, really hard to get to this moment in time and when sort of two attempts to separate them as winner and loser and it still doesn’t perhaps sort of shine with one side coming through. It is what it is. The rules are there at the start.”  The climax had its multiple talking­points but there is no denying that England and New Zealand deserved to be in the summit clash. All this summer, England has roused itself to the ‘it is coming home’ slogan and Morgan’s men would hopefully weave in multiple narratives into the cricket story at the game’s birthplace.  Age­old rivalry Traditionally, the Old Blighty has an enduring fondness for Tests and the Ashes. Even in the post­final press conference, a scribe asked Morgan about the trophy triumph giving a fresh impetus to the imminent Ashes series commencing on August 1! It is a rivalry for the ages but ODIs have a role too and finally, England is warming up to it and the Twenty20s.  Morgan and his merry bunch have carved a space for the distilled pleasures of limited-overs cricket amidst the languid joys of Tests. Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, the indefatigable Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer have played their stirring parts and Morgan harnessed his resources. Perhaps the latest epochal win would lure some youngsters to prefer a bat over their football boots and that constitutes the bigger picture about where cricket belongs especially in a landscape leaning towards the English Premier League.
