Wright rues New Zealand’s 1979 World Cup miss

Christchurch, Jan 26 (IANS) Former New Zealand captain John Wright said Monday 1979 was the closest they got to a World Cup final having lost the semifinal to England only by nine runs. “New Zealand lost the semi-final to England by a very low margin – nine runs, at Old Trafford. We played the full 60 overs and nine runs was not much.” England rode on No.4 batsman Graham Gooch’s 71 to score 221 for eight in 60 overs batting first and then restricted New Zealand to 212 for nine to clinch the narrow win. The West Indies’ premier batsman Vivian Richards and Collis King took the England bowling attack apart to help the Caribbean side to their second consecutive World Cup triumph.
