Black caps fan buys ticket to London to watch final

From Morning Report, 6:15 am on 12 July 2019

The Black Caps are going to play England in the Cricket World Cup final on Sunday night after the English comprehensively beat Australia this morning.

England won by eight wickets and with just under 18 overs to spare.

New Zealand's stunning victory yesterday over tournament favourites India is being widely praised as one of the Black Caps' greatest achievements. Mike Lane, one of the co-hosts of the irreverent podcast "The Alternative Commentary Collective", booked a ticket to London about 20 minutes after the final ball was delivered.

He spoke to RNZ's Matthew Theunissen.
