Ravi Shastri pays generous tribute to Black Caps skipper Kane Williamson

World Cup New Zealand

New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said while the players were overwhelmed by the support they have received, a homecoming ceremony "would not be feasible given the players' different post-tournament arrangements".

Observing Williamson's remarkable calmness in this situation, Ravi Shastri lauded the Blackcaps' captain.

Shastri's India team were beaten by the Black Caps in a nailbiting semifinal last week, but in his first tweet since July 5 it is Williamson alone he singles out for generous praise, invoking the biblical story of Cain and Abel in doing so.

Earlier, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern praised Kane Williamson's men for putting up a courageous fight on the sport's biggest stage. He always plays the game in the right spirit and he is a pure gentleman.

This is the second successive time that New Zealand finished as the runners-up in the World Cup. Following the instincts of former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum, Williamson ended the tournament as the most proactive captain.

A group of rueful New Zealand players, meanwhile touched down on home soil on Thursday.

The left-armer was still haunted by the deflection off Ben Stokes's bat in the 50th over that raced to the boundary and helped send the final into a Super Over before England claimed the win on the total boundaries scored.

After the thrilling match, Black Caps captain Kane Williamson said the team were gutted and still trying to cope with coming as close as they did to winning the trophy.

Any England fans doubting the validity of the World Cup triumph could well be advised to take solace in the words of "Champagne Super Over" and wallow instead in the afterglow of what was surely the most dramatic cricketing rollercoaster these shore has and will ever see.

In fact, it is a tough pill to swallow for New Zealand team as well as their skipper Kane Williamson.

He said the World Cup final was "pretty tough to get your head around - I think it will take time to reflect with a rational mind".

Your composure and dignity viewing the sequence of events was remarkable.
