Cricket lovers still discuss the exciting way World Cup 2019 ended. Now former India opener Gautam Gambhir has said that given the way New Zealand played in the entire World Cup, he should have been declared the winner jointly with England. Let us know, the final match of the World Cup 2019 was also tied in the Super Over, after which the host England was declared the winner on the basis of the boundary.
In a show by Storesports, Gambhir said, “Last time there should have been joint World Cup winners. New Zealand should have won the title of world champion but it was unfortunate. “
He added, “If you look at his overall record, there is a lot of consistency in his performance.” He has been runners-up in the last two World Cups and there is a lot of consistency in his performance. I think he was very competitive in whatever circumstances he played. We did not give them enough credit. ”

Recently, New Zealand cricket team captain Ken Williamson also gave his statement on this defeat. While chatting live with David Warner on Instagram, Williamson said, “Some things are not in your hands.” Sometimes you do well but still do not get the result, after that match we were a little disappointed but we were also proud of the way we played in the entire tournament and final match. ”
Let me tell you, in the World Cup 2019, when England was declared the winner on the basis of the boundary, then this rule of the ICC created a ruckus, after which the ICC changed its rule. According to the new ICC rules, a super over in a knockout match will occur until a team wins the match.

Will go until the tournament results are clear. In this case both the Cricket Committee and the CEC agreed that it would be used in all ODIs and T20 World Cup matches to make the game exciting and attractive. ”
According to the statement, “If the match remains tie even after the super over at the group level, it will be considered a tie but in the semi-finals and finals the super over will be held until a team can score more runs.”
