It is bad luck. Luck is a thing.How special do you have to be call it ‘salt’ when someone complains because you hit the 3rd last ball for 4 extra runs while running a 2
The **** is wrong with you clowns
You could be more gracious, come on.The salt is amazing. Cry harder bitches, England won fair and square. #wasntawide
The team benefiting from it winning the World Cup has guaranteed that they can’t fix it without (a) looking like absolute idiots, and (b) spoiling the premier world tournament for fans on all sides.Haha when Stokes got the 6 off the bat my brother asked why that rule hadn’t been changed and I gave the same answer. Such a long history of waiting until the most embarrassing possible moment to fix obvious flaws in the rules.
Stop embarrassing yourself and have some humility ffs.The salt is amazing. Cry harder bitches, England won fair and square. #wasntawide
people absolutely seething at umpires applying the rules that every bloke out there is aware of.Its great isn't it
Nowhere near as odd as Stokes bunting a thigh high full toss on legstump when we needed 2 to win.yeah seriously wtf. try to hit the damn thing!
I Was thinking this before the tournament. Just give them another 6 balls and another 2 wickets and keep going until someone wins.I mean, that's the point. None of them are particularly more valid.
Should just have been another super over. It's the equivalent of sudden death penalties so why not?
Good post this. Rightly identifies that NZ just simply couldn't get it done. No shame in that.I mean we all know what happened. England were awarded the World Cup after a tied game where New Zealand had multiple chances to finish them off and couldn’t.
Complaining about the rules as to why England won, is as good as the Pakistan supporters who complained that semi finals should have been decided by head to head and not net run rate.
It hurts. It stings. But man I’m proud of what that team achieved in spite of their weaknesses and that terrible run in where they lost 3 games. Such a gut wrenching performance.
Yes I feel ripped off as a New Zealand fan, but rules are rules. They suck sometimes.
And you can probably blame Trent Boult as much as the rules. To see him step on the rope taking that catch was so unusual, as he’s consistently shown great judgement in that kind of situation before. But pressure.
It was just the best damn game of ODI cricket ever.
Cricket, you terrible mistress. You’ve really gone and hurt me this time. But I still love you.
Eventually the mafia would decide they'd broken some sort of zoning rules, but yeah playing until then at least could work.I Was thinking this before the tournament. Just give them another 6 balls and another 2 wickets and keep going until someone wins.
