  1. I'm a huge NZ fan and the stupid rules and the result broke my heart. But I'm not going to be jaded and say NZs win was guaranteed if not for the extra runs because as you said, we don't know what would have happened, I will say NZ had a good chance if not for those extra 4 runs as the equation would have been 7 off 2 and it isn't easy to get it but Stokes could still have done it. Same goes for the 4 off 2 equation especially with Rashid on strike. I'm mainly angry at the incompetence of the umpires in such a big match in such a close game, there were so many poor decisions in this game like Taylor's dismissal. Not to mention ICCs nonsensical rules which are quite frankly, ridiculous. It's like if you draw a chess game, the win goes to the player who captured more pieces, which is stupid. If there's one thing this WC has shown us, it's that ICC is the most incompetent sporting body imo.
  2. It isn't just the batsman's mentality that changes if the equation was different, what if Boult had bowled differently considering the different equation? Point is, we don't know how it would have turned out. England could still have won, but so could NZ and that chance was taken away by a wrong umpire decision which ultimately led to a super over.
  3. Apparently if boundary count is same, they check boundary count in main 50 overs and if that is tied as well, then they count from 50 overs in reverse, till a delivery comes up where one side hit a boundary and the other didn't.

    Can someone explain the rationale of these rules

    I can't even completely blame NZ as England got 6 runs where they only should've got 5 even taking the overthrow boundary into account.

    It wasn't really on luck, NZ qualified on a criteria that measures consistency and the margin of wins and losses. It doesn't penalize different styles of play. NZ are accumulators while England are power hitters. Of course they'd have more boundaries. Also, NZ have a stronger bowling attack and took more wickets. Why wasn't that considered?

    This is more depressing than India's loss

    It isn't just that, apparently England should only have gotten 5 runs from that overthrow according to the rules even when counting the overthrow boundary.
