In one of the most thrilling finishes in the sport, England needed 15 runs in the final over but all that they could manage was 14. This caused the finals of the World cup to conduct a super over between the two teams. England who played first posted 15 runs in the super over which required New zealand 16 runs from their last 6 balls.

England were awarded 6 runs for an overthrow after the ball deflected off Stokes’ bat. Stokes was trying to complete a double at the striker’s end but before he could reach the crease, the ball ricocheted off his bat to the boundary. 6 runs for England in a tense final over.

However, questions have been raised over the veracity of the officials’ decision to award 6 runs for the overthrow in the final over. According to International Cricket Council rules, not 6 but 5 runs should have been awarded as the act of overthrow took place even before Stokes completed the 2nd run.

The decision of declaring England as the winners just because they scored highest number of boundaries comparing to New zealand was criticized by the fans and experts. Jimmy Neesham one of the prominent player of the New zealand team, got extremely dejected and expressed it through his official twitter account. He requested young Kids not to take sports and advised them to take up baking or something.
