Although in 2015, the Australian team registered a comprehensive victory against them in the finals, this time the Kiwis must be feeling heartbroken as the ICC rule took away the title from them. Besides this, the super over bowled in the final was the first super over bowled in One-Day Internationals and the World Cup history.
