The New Zealand team ended up being the bridesmaids for the second time in a row when England defeated them thanks to a technicality in the final played at the Lord’s Cricket Ground. The Kane Williamson-led side was equal to England at all levels and the match ended in a tie with both teams on 241 runs and even the Super Over ended at levels with 15 runs each.

It can be said that luck was not with the Kiwis in the match as in the last few overs they managed to let a few things slip out of their hands. A turning point in the proceedings was Trent Boult taking Ben Stokes’ catch and then stepped onto the boundary ropes. Then the infamous four overthrows happened which was added to the two runs the batsmen completed and England got six runs off that ball. Though controversial, the runs stood and helped the hosts square the target.

Neesham asked kids to die happy and fat; Adnan Sami disagrees and consoles

In the Super Over, New Zealand was asked to chase down 15 runs and Jimmy Neesham made 13 of those, including a six off Jofra Archer. With two needed off the last ball, Martin Guptill was run out attempting the second and England won the encounter as they had hit more boundaries than their opponents and became World Champions.

Neesham was gutted and consoled Guptill, whose throw had hit Stokes’ bat and went for four runs turning the game on its head and couldn’t seal the deal when it mattered the most. He went on Twitter after the game and put a message on that kids shouldn’t take up sports due to the heartbreak and advised them to take up bakery and life their life happily.

Neesham tweeted, “Kids, don’t take up sport. Take up baking or something. Die at 60 really fat and happy.”

However, one celebrity from the field of movies and entertainment, who was once known for his enormous girth disagreed with Neesham’s advise. Adnan Sami, the famous singer replied to the cricketer saying that he should be proud of the way he and his team played. He also said that being fat doesn’t necessary means happiness.

Sami, who became famous due to his amazing voice and for being on the heavier side on the weighing scale; made a complete transformation a few years ago and even got Indian citizenship, leaving behind his home country of Pakistan.

Sami tweeted, “Hey chin-up mate! You guys were brilliant. Besides, fatness doesn’t necessarily lead to happiness. You all taught the world the most important lesson of how to fight. Much love!”
