The victor of the final in CWC 2019 after two tied innings - 50 overs and super over - was decided on the count of boundaries with England edging New Zealand out, courtesy of hitting six more boundaries. Faf du Plessis (820) of South Africa and Ross Taylor of New Zealand (817) are on the fourth and fifth position respectively.

In an effort to put an end to those never-ending matches, the organizers this year made a decision to force players into a tiebreaker if the deciding set goes to 12-12. The drama intensified when a throw from the deep ricocheted off the bat of Ben Stokes as he dived for ground and was inadvertently deflected for four overthrows.

Roy fired the ball into the keeper and Buttler whipped the bails off to find Guptill short of the crease and run out.

But even there, most observers regard boundaries as irrelevant in a sport about runs and wickets as one former worldwide put it. According to Taufel, Dharmsena should have awarded England only five runs apart from keeping Stokes at the non-striker's end.

- and the runs completed by the batsmen, together with the run in progress if they had already crossed at the instant of the throw or act.

Oh, and England should have had tailender Adil Rashid on strike for the remaining balls, not Stokes.

This was England's first world cup win in a sport it has created and taken around the world. Respected former umpire Simon Taufel has said the incident was a "clear mistake'".

Betting agency Sportsbet labelled it a "farcical World Cup finish", moving to refund punters who had backed New Zealand.

"They (England) should have been awarded five runs, not six".

"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 said.

"That run can never be counted". Erasmus was the umpire once more and he didn't move this time.

Pure chance, four extra runs, and "match gone" turned into "match on" as what would have been seven from two balls - or even eight from two with Stokes run out - becomes three from two. "Obviously, TV replays showed otherwise", he explained.

"After what I've been through, it does make these moments feel all the sweeter because you are going to have ups and downs, but it is how you cope with it that matters". But this was not the only factor which reflected how narrowly the two finalists, hosts England, and New Zealand, were divided. And two good teams were playing a cricket game, but it was still a tie. I don't think anything like that's happened where you now question it.

After a low scoring game where the ball dominated the bat, both sides finished their innings tied with each other, with a super over required to settle the game. Respect is having respect for the people you play with and against, and respect for the shirt. "It was a pretty tough pill to swallow", Williamson added.

Hundreds of children flooded across the outfield at the Oval - across town from Lord's - to help Eoin Morgan's men celebrate their historic triumph. Perhaps the rules will be changed. The disappointment of the kiwis, who had in the last world cup lost to Australia in the final, is understandable.

"I've woken up in better conditions, but it's an incredible feeling", Stokes, who was man of the match, told AFP. 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. "Rules are rules", said Williamson with typical self-control.
