England was lucky enough to claim the World Cup 2019 trophy even though 100 Overs Match and Super Over ended in a tie because of the ICC Rule (Team scoring most boundaries win the title). While England smashed 27 boundaries, New Zealand could manage only 17 boundaries. Controversy erupted over the manner in which World Cup champions were picked up.
New Zealand Head Coach Gary Stead has come up with a proposal. He feels sharing the 2019 World Cup title with New Zealand should be considered by the International Cricket Council (ICC). 'When you play for seven weeks and can't be separated on the final day, Sharing the World Cup title should be considered,' he says.
New Zealand Batting Coach Craig McMillan feels making the two nations share the World Cup trophy will be the right thing to do.
Earlier, Former Cricketers Yuvraj Singh, Gautam Gambhir, Brett Lee, Dean Jones and Sanjay Manjrekar slammed ICC for setting such a rule to decide the winner. Post the match, New Zealand Skipper Kane Williamson opined it was a shame that winner of the final in a World Cup was decided in such a manner.
