England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) director Ashley Giles has dismissed England’s extra runs in overthrow in the ICC World Cup-2015 final.
Chasing the target of 242, when Ben Stokes of England played the ball near the boundary and ran for the second run, Martin Guptill’s throw from his bat went to the square before reaching the crease. This gave a total of 6 runs in England’s account and how severe it was on New Zealand, now it is in front of everyone.
At the same time, former umpire Simon Taufel had said that England got a run over because when the ball hit Stokes’s bat and hit the square then the second run was not completed. In such a run and a fourfold, England should have scored 5 runs in the match and not 6 runs. Former spinner Giles has dismissed such things.
Giles said, ‘Not blemish, you can also tell me that the last ball of Trent Bolt was a full toss on the leg stump. If Stokes did not go for two runs, then he could send it for six runs. ”
Giles said, ‘We are world champions. We have got a trophy and we want to keep it with us. England won the match on the basis of the total boundaries in this match. New Zealand also scored 241 runs in this match, and England also scored so many runs. The match went into super over and the match was also tied here, after which the England team became the world champion due to excessive boundary.
