Amitabh Bachchan mocks ICC's boundary rule after England's World Cup win

Kane Williamson says he wasn't aware of the little-known rule that cost the Black Caps the final Kane Williamson says he wasn't aware of the little-known rule that cost the Black Caps the final

A total of 359 sixes were scored throughout the 2019 edition of the cricket World Cup in England and Wales. Martin Guptill fired in the throw from the deep to wicketkeeper Tom Latham but it hit the bat of a diving Stokes and went to the boundary. We just kept talking during the partnership with Jos, and the run-rate wasn't getting away, and in the last over when the ball hit the bat and went for four - I apologized to Kane for that.

"They [England] should have been awarded five runs, not six", Taufel told Fox Sports Australia.

Former worldwide umpire Simon Taufel, a five-time victor of the ICC's Umpire of the Year award and widely viewed as one of the greatest umpires this century, pointed out that England were wrongly awarded extra run in the crucial 50th over.

The England cricket team is full of immigrants and one of their players was born in New Zealand and helped his team win the trophy against New Zealand.

"It's a clear mistake ... it's an error of judgment", he added.

Former global umpire Simon Taufel said that the umpires made a mistake while awarding six runs to England, instead of five. The action took place in the final over of the 50th over of England's chase when Ben Stokes pushed a ball towards mid-wicket and sprinted off to complete a brace.

It since emerged that under Law 19.8, extra runs are only awarded if the batsmen have crossed when the ball is thrown, which was not the case on Sunday.

The umpires awarded six as Stokes and Adil Rashid were returning for their second run when the overthrow was made.

The footage of the incident clearly shows that when Guptill released the ball, Stokes and Rashid had not crossed over for the second run.

The record books will show that England then scored two runs off the remaining two balls, sending it to a Super Over, which would also be tied.

He explained that the five runs should have come off the fourth delivery of the last over of England's innings because the overthrow rule states that runs shall not be awarded if the batsmen do not cross the middle of the pitch "at the instant of the throw". Also, in the law there is no mention on the part of batsman's action.

The 48-year-old praised acknowledged that the call "influenced the game", but said it should not be viewed as costing New Zealand the World Cup.

Taufel defended the officials though, saying the moment involved many things happening at the same time.
