Following the finals many former and present cricketers took to social media to pour in the wishes to both the teams for providing a fitting final. Many India cricketers wished their counterparts including the skipper of the Indian Cricket Team, Virat Kohli.
Batting first the Kiwis put on a decent total of 241 on board. After an initial setback the Brits came back strong and with their own fightback.
