Southampton. After two years of hard work, the New Zealand team, who became the world Test champions after defeating India, celebrated here all night before leaving for home. The New Zealand team also named the Test Championship mace as Michael Mason. Mason is a former New Zealand fast bowler who has played only one Test. He played one Test in 2004 and played 26 ODIs and three T20Is between 2003 and 2010. Captain Kane Williamson told ‘Stuff.com.New Zealand’, “It was a wonderful night. It was made after such a great match. This wonderful moment had come after two years of hard work. In such a situation, the celebration was inevitable.

When asked how was his health in the morning after the celebration, the captain Hardilaziz said, “My opinion may differ from others. I was feeling fine.” Asked how long the celebrations lasted, he said, “If I hadn’t stayed till the last, I wouldn’t have got the right answer.” Senior batsman Trent Boult said that Neil Wegener hit the mace. Don’t let it go out of your sight. “Vagi (Wegner) hasn’t let the mace out of sight since last night,” he said. “All the players are very happy. There is a mixture of emotion and celebration. This celebration will continue once you reach home and the quarantine is over.” Fast bowler Tim Southee said, “Last night was great. After stretching the match till the sixth day, won. Emotions of all the players were on the rise. There was also disappointment about the bad weather.
“We are so far away that the reaction of the people in our country is not known but we are sure they will be proud of it,” he said. We look forward to reaching home and celebrating with everyone.” Williamson will not be able to attend the celebrations at home as he will be staying in the UK to play ‘The Hundred’. He is part of Birmingham Phoenix in the tournament starting July 21. Devon Conway, Kyle Jamieson and Colin de Grandhomme will also stay in England to play in this T20 tournament.
