British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday that England's success in the World Cup Cricket Series has helped the nation fall in love again with the sport.

Widely praised for the grace with which he and his side accepted the defeat, Williamson said they had signed up to the rules that governed the tournament.

In a final that left fans on the edge of their seats, England drew with New Zealand but secured their victory by virtue of scoring more boundaries.

On sharing the trophy, he added: "Perhaps when you play over a seven-week period and you can't be separated on the final day then that is something that should be considered".

In an emotional and electric ambiance at Lord's, each side scored 241 in their 50 overs and had been level on 15 once they batted for an extra over apiece.

"When the odds were against you in the biggest game of your lives, you simply and stubbornly refused to lose".

Bruce identifies first two signings should he become Newcastle boss
According to Paul Joyce, while Newcastle have made an offer to Sheffield Wednesday for Bruce, that offer has yet to be accepted. Bruce was appointed as Sheffield United boss in January and led them to 12th place in the Sky Bet Championship.

"It was a really good effort to get knockout stages", he said."We were forced to play a style of game because of the conditions and adopted that really well". "The fight New Zealand show and the fact they have done it for an extremely long time".

England were given six runs when a fielder's throw hit Ben Stokes' bat as he dived to complete a second run and went for four - but laws appears to say that was one too many.

"I suppose you never thought you would have to ask that question and I never thought I would have to answer it (smiling)", was Williamson's first reaction when asked about the rule.

He said: "We just wanted to enjoy the moment... it was so much hard work and you go through so much as a group, you've got to make sure you enjoy the experience".

"At the end of the day nothing separated us, no one lost the final, but there was a crowned victor and there it is", Williamson told Newstalk ZB.
