The 2019 World Cup final between England and New Zealand saw a controversial ending with the hosts England being declared the winners after the Super Over ended in a tie.
India cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar was not convinced with the ICC’s boundary rules which suggest the team with more boundary count after a Super Over should be considered as winner, and suggested an alternative for it.
“I feel there should be another super over to decide the winner, instead of considering the number of boundaries scored by both teams. Not just in a World Cup final. Every game is important. Like in football, when teams go into extra time, nothing else matters,” Tendulkar was quoted.
Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan came up with a novel, yet hilarious way to have his say in the matter.
The 76-year-old actor took to Twitter and came up with a witty analogy to get his point across.
The Man Of The Tournament in 2011 edition of the World Cup, Yuvraj Singh was also upset with New Zealand’s defeat.
“I don’t agree with that rule! But rules are rules congratulations to England on finally winning the World Cup, my heart goes out for the Kiwis they fought till the end. Great game an epic final!!!!,” Yuvraj tweeted.
