An island conquers the world

june 24, 2021

2015, Heartbreak in Melbourne. 2019, Heartache in London. 2021, delirious joy at a sun-soaked Southampton. Even as India worryingly continued to trip up in knockout games, New Zealand, the team that not even the most parochial Indian fan can stir up any negative emotion for, admirably held their nerve to become world Test champions.

It would be tempting to see Wednesday’s eight-wicket win as a romantic story of redemption for the nice guys, as the night when the Cinderellas of world cricket didn’t have to flee in despair, but that would be disrespectful. This is a team of highly-talented players – skillful, passionate, professional, ambitious, intensely disciplined, and now, a bunch that knows how to win.
