World Cup final overthrow in September 2019, involving Ben Stokes, Martin Guptill

The final incident of the 2019 World Cup collapse involving England's Ben Stokes and New Zealand's Martin Guptill. It took the game to a Super Over, will be evaluated in September 2019, and decided at a session on Monday by the MCC World Cricket Committee (WCC).

 
The decision was made by the committee of the WCC along with the former cricketers Shane Warne and Kumar Sangakkara after the world press and cricket brotherhood triggered a huge uproar. Kumar Dharmasena, on-field umpire, had also confessed to the judgment mistake days after the dispute broke out.
 
The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) said that in the context of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Final, the WCC talked about Law 19.8 in regard to overthrows. WCC considered the law to be evident, but the law panel will evaluate the matter in September 2019.
 
The WCC also supported the implementation of substitutes for players with concussion and the latest declaration by ICC of further tests in the digital calling of No balls.
 
MCC said that the commission also suggested using ball-tracking software to support on-field referees’ judge No balls over waist height and wide across the head of the batsman. Such calls are often hard for umpires, but the tech would be comparatively simple to help.
 
The WCC voiced its assistance to see the return of touring sides to Pakistan, among other significant conversations that took place during the meeting.
