Cricket World Cup 2019 final: Comments on ICC’s boundary-count rule that decided winner

Former and current cricketers, including India’s Rohit Sharma and Gautam Gambhir, criticised the International Cricket Council’s boundary count rule.

 
“Some rules in cricket definitely needs a serious look in,” tweeted Indian opener Rohit Sharma on Monday.
 
“Don’t understand how the game of such proportions, the #CWC19Final, is finally decided on who scored the most boundaries. A ridiculous rule @ICC. Should have been a tie. I want to congratulate both @BLACKCAPS & @englandcricket on playing out a nail biting Final,” Gambhir wrote on his twitter handle.
 
“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 !!!! #CWC19Final,” Yuvraj Singh.

Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris called ICC a joke. “Nice work @ICC ... you are a joke!!!,” he wrote.
 
“Grossly unimaginative ICC rules help #England win World Cup..Ideally it would have been better if both Eng & NZ were declared joint winners..& shared the Cup..as underdogs #NZ did more to create such an amazing result..while #Eng were expected to win hands down..Think ICC think!,” he tweeted.
