He then nailed his last tweet where he advised kids not to take up sports. “Kids, don’t take up sport. Take up baking or something. Die at 60 really fat and happy,” read the post.
“We thought runs on the board would be a good option – we would have liked 10-20 more. But in a World Cup final this was a competitive total. The bowlers really put the batsmen under pressure on a tough surface. Both the teams showed a lot of fight. It had to go down to the last ball, and then the last ball of the next little match, but a great match all round,” said Kane after the loss.
