In the 2019 ODI World Cup, England were declared winners for hitting more boundaries in the match when both the final match and the Super Over were tied against New Zealand.
In the final of the Euro Cup played late on Sunday night, Italy won the title by defeating England in a penalty shootout. After this match, the pain of New Zealand cricketers’ defeat in the 2019 World Cup final resurfaced. He took a jibe at the defeat of England.
Former New Zealand cricketer Scott Styris said that the result of the final is beyond my understanding. England had scored more corners, so they are the champions.
New Zealand was defeated by the boundary count rule in the World Cup
Actually, the 2019 ODI World Cup final was played between New Zealand and England. Both this match and the super over after that were tied. After this, according to the rules of the International Cricket Council (ICC), England was declared the winner on the basis of hitting more boundaries in the match. Then there was a lot of criticism of this rule and the ICC. Then the rule was changed.
Euro Cup and Cricket World Cup both took place in London
Something similar happened in the final of the Euro Cup. Here the final between Italy and England was a 1-1 draw. The result was a penalty shootout. During this, Italy defeated England 3-2. It is a matter of coincidence that the finals of both the Euro Cup and the 2019 ODI World Cup were played in London itself.
Jimmy Neesham also took a jibe at England
Jimmy Neesham came out to bat in the Super Over of the ODI World Cup. He also hit six. Neesham has now taunted England regarding the final of the Euro Cup. Why was the penalty shootout done? Why was the team with the most passes not made the champion?
Users also trolled
A user retweeted that this is football, not a cricket world cup where boundary count rules can be won. Also, there was no umpire like Dharmasena, so there was no party for England this time. In fact, while taking a throw run by a New Zealand fielder in the ODI World Cup, English all-rounder Ben Stokes hit the boundary with the bat. Then Sri Lankan umpire Dharmasena added 5 runs to England’s account.
