My apologies, I hadn't realised they were quite that stringent !!!

I'm sure 1 or 2 do. Australian fans in general are terrible.

Is that an ICC rule or England's rule? I thought we were the only country that has that requirement.

Amid the furore over umpires call to give an extra run when a throw struck Ben Stokes’ bat in the World Cup final, it has now come to light that the all-rounder had asked the umpires to take away the four overthrows which ultimately proved to be decisive in England’s win over New Zealand.
During the final over in England’s chase of 241 on Sunday at Lord’s, Stokes accidentally knocked the ball coming in from deep midwicket fielder and deflected it off to the third man boundary, while attempting to dive for his crease with an outstretched bat in a bid to complete his second run.
After consultation with Marais Erasmus and the rest of his umpiring colleagues, Kumar Dharmasena signalled six runs for the incident, meaning that England — who by then seemed to be drifting out of contention needing nine runs from three balls — were suddenly right back in the hunt for their World Cup glory needing three more from two.
James Anderson, Stokes’ Test team-mate, has revealed that the all-rounder, who was hugely apologetic the moment the incident happened, had appealed to the umpires to overturn their decision.
“The etiquette in cricket is if the ball is thrown at the stumps and it hits you and goes into a gap in the field you don’t run,” Sydney Morning Herald quoted Anderson as telling BBC’s Tailenders podcast.
“But if it goes to the boundary, in the rules it’s four and you can’t do anything about it.
“I think, talking to Michael Vaughan who saw him after the game, Ben Stokes actually went to the umpires and said, ‘Can you take that four runs off. We don’t want it’.
“But it’s in the rules and that’s the way it is,” he added.
Former Australian umpire Simon Taufel has described the costly ruling in the World Cup final as a “clear mistake”.
“They (England) should have been awarded five runs, not six,” Taufel told foxsports.com.au.
“It’s a clear mistake and it’s an error of judgment,” he added.
However, the ICC said the umpires took decisions on the field based on their interpretation of the rules, and the cricket body would not comment on the episode.

i'm guessing you lived in Australia for around 50 years and whinged about living here and bagged this country and its national sides the whole time you had been there
and you seem to only pop your head up either when Australia stumbles or England succeeds a typical only sing when they're winning supporter

How do you get showing 5 cups to your 1 as whingeing? I'd call it being quite buoyant if anything. :)

The odds are, with the next WC being in india the aussies won’t be world champs for at least 8 more long years. England however are world champs for at least the next 4 years.

Would using wickets lost to determine the winner push the game in the right direction? Short form cricket is only about getting as many runs as possible from a set number of balls and if you’ve got 10 wickets why not make good tactical use of every one of them if you want, like England did at the end. Rules should encourage aggressive cricket and teams prepared to go hard and bat deep, it’s entertaining. Punters want to see teams push the boundaries, is it better in the long run to get bowled out for 300 in 40 overs than get 300 for 0 in 50 overs, coz next game it might be 400 / 450 etc.

That logic flaws if both teams get the same amount of runs of the same number of overs, yet one team achieves it losing less wickets ???
Total runs determines the winner normally, so wickets lost would only come into effect in the event of equal runs.
A batting couple could get 2 runs off every ball (12) or 3 x 4 of only 3 of the deliveries and defending 3 deliveries....yet the current rules give boundaries preference over the 6 x 2 runs....each to their own...

I reckon the way forward for limited overs cricket is to use wickets as a tool, a different mindset to test cricket. So if we agree countbacks, whether boundaries or wickets are not an acceptable way to decide a winner why not just play another super over, two new batsmen and a new bowler, simple.

Just play another super over would be better, however that wasn't the rules for this one and England won it.

Feels good to be world champions.

Only country ever to have won football, cricket and rugby world cups.
