ICC Cricket World cup 2019: Controversial throw of World Cup final will be reviewed: The controversial throw of the ICC World Cup final between England and New Zealand played last month will be reviewed.
England Won the Match
England won the World Cup in the Super Over. But in the last over of the scheduled time before the super over, the throw of New Zealand’s Martin Guptal crossed the boundary line behind the wicketkeeper after hitting the bat of Ben Stokes of England. Umpire Kumar Dharmasena had signaled six runs adding two runs of the players, while the players should have got the same runs taken in view of the throw time.
According to an official statement issued by the MCC, the World Cricket Committee (WCC) has talked about the 19.8 rule regarding the overthrow of the World Cup final. According to him, the rule is clear but also said that there should be a review in this case in September.
Be aware that England’s team needed 9 runs from 3 balls to win in the final match of the World Cup. During this time Ben Stokes played the ball at mid-wicket and after the ball went into the hands of Martin Guptill, he threw it, then the ball went across the boundary with the bat of Ben Stokes taking the second run. The umpire gave 6 runs on this. It consisted of a two run run and a 4 run boundary (overthrow). This was the turning point of the match and the match was tied. After this, England became the world champions for the first time after putting more boundaries after the match tie in the Super Over. However, after the match many veterans believed that that overthrow would have scored 5 and not 6.
