Oh my my my...Kiwis were so unlucky.
The overthrow 6 and the rule that level was a loss.
Feels not right somehow.


Not complaining obviously, but shouldnít the team whoíve lost less wickets win if the scores are level?

The tournament rules say different

I think whoever finishes higher in the group should win if it's a tie. Which would have been England...

The Wikipedia page listing cricket world cup finals and how they were won has already been amusingly edited.

Kane Williamson is one classy guy, itís always such a pleasure to play the Kiwis because they play the game hard but fair and always within the spirit of the game.

Imagine the reaction of the Aussies if that 6 had been given against them!

To be fair, if you're replying to a c**t like that it's probably hard to be magnanimous.

Thought I'd seen most things in sport, but the last over and the super over was unbelievable,  sport at its best.

I hope Andrew Strauss takes over from Trevor Bayliss after the Ashes. 

What an amazing game, I doubt we will see another like it.

I occasionally post on an Aussie cricket forum and for such a successful sporting nation they are incredibly bitter.  It's one thing being a sore loser when you've lost a final but being a sore loser when you weren't even in the final is taking it to the next level.

Not for me.  Strauss is an administrator at heart.
