Theresa May's innings as United Kingdom prime minister might be coming to an end but she was clearly enjoying herself as she hosted England's World Cup-winning cricketers at Downing Street on Monday.
"It's an easy story to say what happened in the World Cup final is redemption for him, but I just think it was one of English cricket's talents showing what he can do on the greatest stage".
"I am sure they will all do sensible things [with the payouts]".
"They should have been awarded five runs, not six", he said, adding that England's Adil Rashid should have faced the second-last ball instead of Stokes.
"You know what, I just remember going down to the police station".
"At the end of the day the umpires are there to rule and they're human as well and like players sometimes errors are made", he told New Zealand media.
England director of cricket Ashley Giles, when asked if he was concerned about Taufel's comments, said on Monday: "Not really".
New Zealand Premier Jacinda Ardern praised the Black Caps for putting their all on the line and then accepting the gut-wrenching defeat with grace.
"At the end of the day nothing separated us, no one lost the final, but there was a crowned victor and there it is", he told Newstalk ZB.
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". "We are only new comers to this and we want to be as consistent as them come the next World Cup", Morgan added.
"Hopefully, given the interest surrounding this, we can organise something appropriate in the weeks to come".
