It was a thrilling final for cricket fans worldwide, and while it wasn't quite the result us Kiwis were hoping for, we are still mighty proud of Blackcaps.
As messages of support and praise from around the world pour in for the team's efforts, Blackcap Ross Taylor shared a heartfelt photo with his children to his social media.
The gorgeous photo showed Ross Taylor with his two young children. His daughter Mackenzie looks proud as she beams in the selfie, while Taylor's son Jonty looks visibly upset, while trying to force a smile - a feeling that many Kiwis will still be feeling at the moment.
"The mixture of emotions after a game like that!" Taylor captioned the photo.
Fans and fellow sports stars praised Taylor and his teammates for their fighting effort.
