London — Eoin Morgan who captains England’s Cricket team said that “We had Allah with us as well”, during a post-match presentation on Sunday in London.

England won ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in the final match held at Lord’s stadium in London on Sunday, which was held between England and New Zealand.

“We had Allah with us as well. I spoke to Adil (Rashid), he said Allah was definitely with us. I said we had the rub of the green (smiling),” Morgan said during the presentation.

In the same breath, Morgan praised New Zealand and reckoned that the Kiwis had a decent run as they outclassed the “hot favorites” India in the first semifinal of the tournament.

“New Zealand, throughout the group stages, were absolutely outstanding, very consistent and in the semifinal were very ruthless in playing against India, India are an extremely strong team,” he added.

“They’ve been actually through a better tournament than we have. The fact a trophy is sitting here is, you know, like I mentioned, we got the rub of the green today,” Morgan said.

Morgan’s comments exhibit England’s openness towards embracing variety of cultures and valuing them for their uniqueness.
