The sportsmanship of you New Zealanders is a lesson to us all.

Well done both teams but particularly the Kiwis for playing the game in the manner and spirit in which it was intended.
It really showed up the snarling, boorish cheating Australians for what they really are.
Bring on the Ashes.
Now that's proper cricket.
The format didn't produce the stunning climax. The quality of the Cricketers did that. The format actually failed to produce a satisfying climax. What is truly stunning is that the world cup of the second biggest sport in the world results in neither team actually winning or losing.

An absurd rule surely you agree? When did the number of boundaries become a measure of success in Cricket? This is the first and probably the last time. No doubt we will see further super overs in the future if the first produces a tie. Unfortunately, once the emotion and euphoria of the games subsides, the first World Cup for England will have an * next to it and will be remembered for leading to the abandonment of the rule.

Agreed the Kiwis and Williamson in particular exemplified sportsmanship and said all the right things.

Also agreed can't wait for the real cricket, and especially look forward to the snarling boorish pommy crowds pretending they are outraged by ball tampering, an art their team pioneered and perfected

We weren't that keen on decisions such as Diego Maradona scoring with his hand against England in the Football World Cup, and that's against the rules of the game and there have been numerous other controversial incidents over the years. However the referees/umpires decision on the day stands in such situations, as for changing the rules or issuing further future guidance that's up to the ICC.

Snarling? Boorish? Perhaps but not cheats, there is only one nation that particular accusation can be aimed at. Obviously the Aussies have been cheating for years until they were finally caught - EVERY Aussie victory should be taken from them, they have obviously cheated every tournament. Look how they have 'fallen apart' since they've had to actually abide by the rules!

ICC has responded that they do not comment on Umpire's interpretation of the Rules while giving decisions on field.

Congratulations to England !! Hope more kids there look upto Cricket and more Live Broadcast on Terrestrial TV / freeview.



So many turning points in that game.
1) I think one Six from Ben stokes was caught on the boundary but feet of the fielder touched boundary marker.
2) Massive Six by Stokes in the last over.
3) Lucky overthrow getting hit by Ben stokes Bat / Body and running for 4.

4) They should have sent Ross Taylor and Williamson to Bat in Super Over. Or possibly Ferguson to Bowl.


It was the day of Ben Stokes !!!

I don't hear the Kiwi team complaining about how the match ended.
Unlike the Australian cricket team who are loathed by everyone they're gracious in defeat as well as victory.
Having a result decided on how many boundaries are hit during a game is the perfect assessment of the contest between bat and ball.
Not that this was needed in the semi-final annihilation....

They're even useless at cheating.
