I too don't like that rule but you can't say England is not a clear winner. These things are part of the game and should improve these rules for future matches.
These rules are not accepted, however England won the Match. No doubt that it was the most glorious match that I've ever seen. We will wait for the next world cup and hopefully will be modified these weird types of rules.

There's a set of rules that define how the winner would be decided. And the rules were made even before the start of the tournament.
And as of fair, number of boundaries is a much more better criteria for announcing the winner rather than a coin toss.

For tennis lovers only, Would you believe that yesterday there was Wimbledon final between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer  and that too was taking place in England at the same time. Whats is more coincidence that final also went beyond the normal  and was won at 13:12 in the tie breaker. Of course we missed that historic match because of the cricket final but its worth watching the highlights at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnLdAeSXZv0

WTF:

"Questions are being raised as to why 6 but not 5 runs were awarded for the overthrow."

Should New Zealand, not England have won World Cup 2019?

There's a set of rules that define how the winner would be decided. And the rules were made even before the start of the tournament.
And as of fair, number of boundaries is a much more better criteria for announcing the winner rather than a coin toss.

A toss may be a bad idea to decide the winner. But a better idea would have been to share the trophy between the two teams. It would have been a much better option, when compared to all the controversy and heartburn we had after the super-over. And in my opinion, giving preference to boundaries, rather than the wickets make no sense at all.

I feel the same way. Wickets should be prioritized, instead of boundaries. If the team A is not scoring boundaries and scoring the same amount of runs as the other team B, then seriously, team A has succeeded in playing more strategically if compared with team B. This is how I view this scenario.

By reading the comments over social media and here, i feel majority of the people including me wished NZ should have won the final.
Yes, losing less wickets should be the criteria but then everything was decided before the match and had NZ hit more boundaries they could have been declared the winners.

I am English but to be honest I’m not a cricket fan. However I watched the final & tbh it was brilliant. If you ever needed an advert for cricket then yesterday was it. Absolutely thrilling, especially the last couple of hours of play.

Yes.. the rules were written before the tournament began. But I have a feeling that the ICC never cared much to study them, as they thought that these rules will never be used. I talked to a lot of my friends, and I can honestly tell you that more than 80% of them were upset at the way the winners were chosen. In general, the feeling is that England stole the trophy and NZ deserved it more than ENG.

Truly this was one of best final we watch ever because too much drama and thrill but honestly we can say New Zealand have one hand on trophy and they drop this just because of these type games I love cricket.

In my opinion, the match is a draw and I despise these pathetic ICC rules where the winner is decided based on boundaries and sixes. Entertaining yet controversial final overall.
On a funny note, England is the home land of cricket and the first world cup was played in England and till now England never won a world cup and the rules they made finally gave them the world cup  Cheesy. The present England one day team is the best they ever had historically and if the present team could not win a world cup, then they will never win another one, another funny thing is that the two teams that played in the finals, England and New Zealand were defeated by Pakistan in the group stages and Pakistan missed out the semi final spot because of run rate and with the help of rain Grin.

I am English but to be honest I’m not a cricket fan. However I watched the final & tbh it was brilliant. If you ever needed an advert for cricket then yesterday was it. Absolutely thrilling, especially the last couple of hours of play.
There is no doubt that it was a thrilling final as the match was a tie even in the super over and there was another close match which is equally interesting between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic which was the longest final and that too decided in a tie breaker.

Anyways, when should I lock this thread? Tomorrow?

Asap for an apparent reason, guess will hang out again in the old thread? Ashes is scheduled next month, and chances are Royce going to open betting thread for the Ashes ( not sure yet). Your participation in discussion is always welcome. We already have tiny community, it's better to stick with each other Tongue

Good point.

I'm locking this thread now.

I am English but to be honest I’m not a cricket fan. However I watched the final & tbh it was brilliant. If you ever needed an advert for cricket then yesterday was it. Absolutely thrilling, especially the last couple of hours of play.

Well, enjoy the cup! Wink
