New Zealand matched England to the very end – the scores were tied at the end of 50 overs as well as the Super Over – but lost the title on boundary count. While the game was an all-time classic, it was difficult a result for the Black Caps, and Ferguson is still struggling to sink it in.
"It was one of those games you really wanted to stand up and play a good game, and have your team get the win," he told ICC 360. "To look back on it, it's tough and probably is not going to sink in for a while. But at the same time, to get to a final like that and put on a performance like that, hopefully we can inspire the next set of Black Caps, and [hopefully] one day we'll get the trophy."
Ferguson, who finished the tournament as the second-highest wicket-taker with 21 scalps, then spoke about his own reasons for pursuing the sport. "New Zealand has got a rich history of successful sports teams," he said. "Of course, the All Blacks and the Black Caps are growing up too, you know. [They're] always punching above their weight, and I think that's inspired me as a kid to play for my country."
