New Zealand coach Gary Stead believes sharing the World Cup within the occasion of a tied remaining ought to be thought of for future tournaments.
The Kiwis missed out on the trophy in agonising vogue at Lord’s on Sunday, when England matched their complete of 241, with the 2 sides then unable to be separated after an excellent over.
Nonetheless, Eoin Morgan’s aspect received the event having hit extra boundaries than New Zealand in the course of the remaining.
Whereas Stead was as magnanimous in defeat as captain Kane Williamson had been on Sunday, he did query whether or not a event that spanned 46 days ought to be determined by such slender parameters.
When requested whether or not the ICC ought to award each side the crown within the occasion of a tie, Stead mentioned: “I’m positive once they had been writing the principles they by no means anticipated a World Cup remaining like that.
“I’m positive it will be reviewed. Maybe once you play over a seven-week interval and you’ll’t be separated on the ultimate day then that’s one thing that ought to be thought of.
“However that is one consideration over a complete lot of issues that went on over the World Cup.
“It is a very, very hole feeling which you can play 100 overs and rating the identical quantity of runs and nonetheless lose the sport, however that is the technicalities of sport.
“It’s unfortunate it comes down to one ball right at the end of the tournament when we’ve been here for seven weeks playing some really good cricket. It will be raw for a long time.”
New Zealand had some luck go towards them, most notably when Martin Guptill’s throw on the stumps noticed a diving Ben Stokes inadvertently deflect the ball away to the boundary by way of his bat.
Six runs had been added to the entire, however former worldwide umpire Simon Taufel mentioned on Monday that England ought to have been awarded solely 5 as a result of Stokes and Adil Rashid had not crossed when the throw was launched.
A legislation within the MCC’s rulebook would appear to help Taufel’s view, however Stead added: “I did not really know that. The umpires are there to rule and so they’re human as nicely and, like gamers, generally errors are made.
“It is simply the human side of sport and possibly why all of us care about it a lot as nicely. We won’t change that now. It’s going to go down in historical past as one which acquired away from us.”
