We're not boring, say World Cup Kiwis after bitter-sweet exit

OLD TRAFFORD, England, June 17 (AFP) - New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming was left with bitter-sweet memories here on Thursday after his side's exit from the World Cup following a nine-wicket defeat to Pakistan.

Fleming refused to accept that Wednesday's game at Old Trafford had been as one-sided as the score suggested and refused to accept that the Kiwis were boring. [More | Scorecard]
