I was not supporting either. Just watched a great match. And at the end just felt for the kiwis. England played amazing cricket. But so did the kiwis. They didn't deserve to be second. No way.

Though, England was announced the WC champions but people were equally sad for Kiwis as they put up a brilliant fight against the English cricketers. It was hard to take sides after watching a brilliant game by both teams.
It must be first time when cricket lovers felt that the WC trophy should be shared.
