New Zealand prepared for World Cup Final says, Ross Taylor
Four years ago, New Zealand was lost to Australia by 7 wickets. However this time, Taylor said he believed they were better prepared to cope with the challenges of an ICC World Cup final.
“I’d be lying if I said we weren’t a bit overawed by the change of scenery. I think we know what to expect, the pressures that come with it, we’ve been there before,” Taylor was quoted as saying in the ICC website.
“Whether it’s England or Australia, we have to enjoy the moment, put our best foot forward and hope for the best,” Taylor was quoted saying on the ICC website.
“Apart from the All Blacks, most New Zealand sides are underdogs, no matter what sport they play. It’s something we have embraced. It doesn’t sit well when we’re the favorites, we try to talk it down as much as possible,” he said.
