Speech: PM’s words from reception held at Downing Street to celebrate...

The final was not just cricket at its best but sport at its best – courage, character, sportsmanship, drama, incredible skill and even the odd slice of luck… All combining to create a real thriller, one of the great sporting spectacles of our time. It was a fitting end to what has been a great tournament – and I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in once again making our country a sporting showcase for the world. The players and coaching staff. The organisers and volunteers. The incredible spectators from 10 nations who brought such colour and passion to England and Wales this summer. The runners-up yesterday, New Zealand. Real champions show their true character not just in victory but also in defeat, and I am sure everyone here agrees that their response on the field yesterday shows what Black Caps are made of, what New Zealanders are made of. They are a credit to their team, a credit to their sport and a credit to their nation. Then of course, there is England. Or “World Cup-winning England”, as we can get used to saying. You are a team that represents modern Britain – and that plays like no other side in the world. In the group stage you responded to setbacks not by giving in but by coming back stronger than ever. And, when the odds were against you in the biggest game of your lives, you simply and stubbornly refused to lose. It is that determination, that character, that has made you world champions. But more than that you have made history. You have helped the nation fall in love with cricket once again. Read More – Source [contf] [contfnew] gov uk [contfnewc] [contfnewc]
