Circumstances that prevailed weren't england's fault so in my book they are fair winners.

Don't see any problem with dissecting decisions, tournament rules either as without further consideration, maybe nothing will change should similar situations arise in future.

In tight games such as this, it's natural to discuss "could have, should have, if only........."

The same question could be asked as to how you'd all be reacting if England hadn't won it.

One simple fact, we are the world cup champions.
End of the day, you didn't deserve the trophy as you should not of been awarded it.
You were not the BEST team in final, let alone the tournament.
Enjoy the success, if it wasn't for the farcical umpiring decision at the end, you would still be trophyless.
Still? Please explain.
Or don't you count T20, as you have never won it?

Or the fact that most test series carry a trophy.

The 5 or 6 runs is ambiguous and it seems a wrong call was made, but if England needed more off the last ball Stokes would have played it differently ,and what could be deemed an official's mistake is life, happens in all sports all the time.

The fact is simsple, England won, and only Australians are moaning about it (and that's because the winners are England) get over it and move on.
I know many kiwis who are mighty pissed off!
Stokes wasn't pissed off !

Personally, I'm not fussed who won the trophy...do they actually get the trophy to take home or a replica.
(I think that even though I was actually born in England I am decidedly more Australian than Stokes is English but I've never punched anyone on the streets in front of a CC camera to find out.)
I remember in the E&DJSA they would decide tied Queens Birthday Cup Carnival games with a corner count back.
I think that even though I was actually born in England I am decidedly more Australian than Stokes is English.
Still don't understand why wickets lost are not used as part of the process to decide tied games...but, them's the rules..

Just saw a post game interview with Stokes' Mother,.
She said " our son was brought up in the Kiwi way, to look after others who couldn't look after themselves, no matter what the situation was."
Maybe Ben has adopted that for his role in the England cricket team :)

Stokes is as English as Symonds Australian to me. Not knocking either but just the way I see it.

I completely agree, however he qualifies the same way as some of these people seem to think they're australian. Obviously the wannabes aussies have learnt the hypocrisy.

From Wikipedia.

Stokes is the son of rugby league player and coach Gerard Stokes. He moved to England at a young age after his father was appointed head coach of Workington Town rugby league club, and grew up in the small West Cumbrian town of Cockermouth, playing cricket for Cockermouth Cricket Club; he won the North Lancashire & Cumbria Cricket League Premier Division Title with the club as a 15-year-old in 2006. As of 2013 his parents have moved back to New Zealand and again reside in Christchurch,[3] along with Ben's brothers.

Doesn't Stokes actually have some Maori ancestry ?

What is the point of this post? Or are you going to post snippets from all the England team's Wiki pages.

Others have been caught, Atherton a prime example, this appeared worse. They have paid the price though, I have no problem with them playing - but I also have no problem with constant verbal abuse from the crowd.

The ICC rules say if you have played in a country for 4 years you can then play for that country.

No problem. Sport and fans go together, sledging from the opposing fans is acceptable to me.

All part of the theatre. Crowd can give as much as they like. Up to the players to perform despite all that. We would do no different (give them heaps) if the shoes were on the other foot.
After a while it will become tedious, then anyone still doing it will look more a right twat, especially if Warner, Smith & Bancroft (if selected) play well and make big scores (and winning would help). :wink:

I noticed many of the members (at Lords) gave each Aussie player a warm round of applause. Even if they made only a small contribution with the bat (maybe sarcasm?).
