    Congratulations England

    Well played and richly deserved England. You always need a slice of luck. They chased not once but twice in the knock out stages.

    oh i know that. i'm saying the ICC probably spent two seconds on concocting some rule they never thought would happen. the rule should have been play another super over.

    should have shared the trophy. sounds less preposterous then winning 'on boundaries'

    there's a consensus that it was actually 5. at the point the fielder threw the ball the second run had not been completed. there's a whole article in Cricinfo on this point.

    for stokes to decline the runs would open all sorts on what is an isn't considered deliberate/unlucky/freaky. i've made my mind up. it was the right decision to accept the runs. should have been 5 thought not 6. and the Bell incident was rubbish. two wrongs though....

    i'm on the verge of agreeing but hang on. can a run out only follow an appeal? it was brought to the umpires attention. is that the same as an appeal? i see your point but nothing stopping two teams coming to an agreement on anything surely

    but in the example CG gave the run out happpened too. it wasn't even a case of bad luck. Bell wrongly assumed the ball had gone to the boundary and was therefore dead. Dhoni declined the wicket. Stokes could do something similar.

    England made Dhoni recall a batsman after run-out so anything is possible. Yes we have seen rules broken before on the pretense of spirit of the game. Pundits and social media are strangely silent on whether Stokes should have declined the extra runs. Probably too big a can of worms to open up just yet.

    if Stokes offered to claim only 2 runs not 6 are the umpires at liberty to agree?

    what exactly should NZ have protested about? Stokes didn't alter his direction, didn't turn around to see the ball trajectory, he simply dived to make his ground. where's your proof? NZ summed up the moment and moved on. stop confusing being hurt with the rules.

    Steve Waugh hits the nail on it's head.

    Not always a bad thing.
