Did umpire error gift England the ICC World Cup?

Did umpire error gift England the ICC World Cup?

The victory is already receiving comparisons to England's 2003 World Cup win, particularly the dramatic finish, with Ben Stokes' heroics at the end being compared to Jonny Wilkinson's drop-goal. You have inspired countless future Morgans, Rashids and Archers.

The hosts triumphed in the competition for the first time after beating New Zealand following a super over at Lord's on Sunday.

The young Stokes turned out for Cockermouth Cricket Club and is well-remembered there.

But Stokes said Monday: "That's all gone and forgotten".

"Yeah, I guess there is a bit of that at times, and the game that we play where there are so many variables and whether it is the surface, the opposition, any sort of condition that can have an influence, but that is why the game is so great I think".

More than 2,500 people turned out to see Stokes when he visited the club two years ago, and Mr Grainger said: "He was nearly the Pied Piper of Cockermouth". In a desperate attempt to retain the strike, Ben Stokes sprinted back to wicketkeeper's end even as the fielder Martin Guptill released the ball from the midwicket. "Another Super over at least!" said Dean Jones.

"The umpires take decisions on the field with their interpretation of the rules and we don't comment on any decisions as a matter of policy", a spokesperson for the governing International Cricket Council said. This rule, made just before the tournament started is just one way to separate two sides after a tied Super Over - and a nonsensical one at that. "So it is up to someone else, I don't know".

Cavaliers To Waive And Stretch J.R. Smith's $4.3M Deal
Smith, 33, played in only 11 games last season, agreeing to leave the team in November to await a trade or release. A 15-year National Basketball Association veteran, Smith has been with the Cavaliers since January 2015.


Ms Buttler said she was able to celebrate with her son in the Long Room at Lord's and on the pitch after the game but is yet to speak to him the day after he became a world champion.

"Rooty came up to me and said some inspirational words as well".

Meanwhile, celebrations were also under way in Sheffield, home city of Joe Root. The tournament was widely watched and cheered by the cricket enthusiasts around the globe.

The captain of the team was born on the outskirts of Dublin.

"Redemption is a word that people have been using, but that is not something I'm thinking about". If they can stay level and really drive what they have done over the last four years and go again, they will have a team that's very competitive in four years and for the T20 World Cup next year. "It was absolutely tremendous".

"P.s most European countries don't play cricket". "It's nearly superhuman. He's really carried the team and our batting line-up", Morgan said.

Back-to-back Cricket World Cup finals and being involved in a match rated as arguably the best one-day worldwide in history, has found some new believers who suddenly realise Kane Williamson's outfit is among the best in an increasingly competitive game.
