    I suppose the rule is there to prevent the batting team from getting too big an advantage from the lucky deflection otherwise it becomes more beneficial than a traditional overthrow because the backing up fielder is disadvantaged too.

    Obviously they haven't, nor the Cricket one either on their own,

    Yesterday is feeling pretty hollow to me to be honest.

    i think england was the better team just, that bit that won the world cup

    am 1 of england biggest critics at times and the ECB are clueless and our game is based around the english summers with swing bowlers and that's it, nothing really is done about the winters tours and the last away ashes was one of the worst, but this win will paper over the cracks and jofra archer will be the new poster boy,

    I turned the commentary off just as Stokes and Butler started to get going .
    The thought of the 5th wicket going down and listening to that twat creaming himself would have made my head explode.

    Wish They'd allowed for a 2nd super-over.
    Deciding it by boundaries was ridiculous.

    That said, England deserved to win for their performances over the last 4 years and during the tournament. Just a bit of a hollow way to achieve the final victory IMO.

    End of the day England won but what a helping hand they were given . Three key decisions went for them on the day which is an hell of a lot . Got to admit if it was roles reversed England would be up in arms over it .

    Cricket will always be my number one sport , I derive such a sense of contentment from it , so many tactical twists and turns.
