England fetch freak six runs after improbable Stokes deflection

England’s director of cricket Ashley Giles says he’s unconcerned at claims England had been given an further bustle of their World Cup take over Original Zealand.

A fielder’s throw hit Ben Stokes’ bat as he dived to complete a 2nd bustle in the final over and went for four.

England had been given six runs but Stokes and Adil Rashid had now not crossed when the throw changed into as soon as released, so therules appears to claimthat changed into as soon as one too many.

Asked whether it mattered to him, Giles said: “Not in point of fact.”

He added: “It is likely you’ll moreover argue the final ball that [Trent] Boult bowled changed into as soon as a elephantine toss on leg stump and if Stokes’ hadn’t correct been buying for two he potentially would’ve banged it out of the ground anyway.

“We’re world champions; we have bought the trophy and we intend to abet it.”

Retired Australian umpire Simon Taufel, who changed into as soon as named the Worldwide Cricket Council’s Umpire of the Year on five successive times from 2004 to 2008,known as the award of the further bustle a “obvious mistake”.

The ICC said umpires took decisions on the self-discipline in accordance to their interpretation of the foundations and that it did now not comment on them.

Stokes went on to support England match Original Zealand’s complete of 241 sooner than they gained one amongst basically the most ideal video games of cricket ever conducted following an further ‘enormous over’.

Every groups ended the further over with 15 runs but England had been topped champions by advantage of having scored extra boundary fours and sixes – 26 to Original Zealand’s 17 – for your total match.

What does the rules dispute?
