Are you like 5 year old?How do the rules cater to the big 3 if both teams knew the rules in advance? Would you be saying the same if NZ had scored a few more boundaries and won?
You seriously think that the final was fixed??
That is right Kane Williamson - it is part of the game.
So what choice NZ have in this matter? Does NZ call the shots in ICC? Can NZ get the decision of awarding world cup to England reversed?
ICC can get away with anything in the world of cricket. England was the 'chosen side' for this WCC - anybody who was paying close attention to commentary and setting, realized as much. Of-course, bookies already knew.
Even I mentioned NZ and England in the thread about who will win this WCC. Go through it. Wait, let me help you: https://defence.pk/pdf/threads/who-will-win-the-cricket-world-cup-poll.619222/page-10
Rules are for the donkeys.
