This means that Black Caps skipper <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/kane-williamson/news/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Kane Williamson</a>, voted Player of the Tournament, will receive the same amount ($126,102 approximately) as the uncapped reserve wicketkeeper <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/tom-blundell/news/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Tom Blundell</a>. <p></p> <p></p>As reported by <em>stuff.co.nz</em>, the prize money of $2 million received for being World Cup runners-up will be given to the team and support staff and not to NZC. <p></p> <p></p>(<strong>READ: </strong><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/cricket-world-cup-a-real-shame-the-trophy-was-decided-on-boundary-count-rues-kane-williamson-869553" target="_blank" rel="noopener">A 'real shame' the trophy was decided on boundary count - Kane Williamson</a>) <p></p> <p></p>World Cup winners England received $4 million for beating New Zealand at Lord's on Sunday. <p></p> <p></p>Speaking to reporters in London on Tuesday, Williamson said he was still absorbing the emotions of an <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/sensational-stokes-archer-lead-england-to-stunning-world-cup-triumph-in-thrilling-super-over-win-against-new-zealand-869169" target="_blank" rel="noopener">unprecedented result</a> on July 14, which saw the World Cup final end with the scores level, which prompted a Super Over which ended with New Zealand level on England s 15. Eoin Morgan s team was crowned winners on the basis of having hit more boundaries in the match 24 to New Zealand s 16. <p></p> <p></p>The Black Caps coach Gary Stead today said that the ICC <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/cricket-world-cup-new-zealand-coach-gary-stead-calls-on-icc-to-review-rules-after-hollow-final-869529" target="_blank" rel="noopener">needed to review its rules</a> after a "hollow" final. <p></p> <p></p>The other point of contention is England mistakenly given an extra run after a throw from Martin Guptill hit the bat of a diving Ben Stokes and deflected to the boundary in the final over of regular play at Lord s.
