New Zealand coach Gary Stead expects ICC to think about sharing the World Cup in future

"I'm sure when they were writing the rules, they never expected a World Cup final like that. I'm sure it'll be reviewed." Stead said.

The Kiwi Coach, Gary Stead hopes that ICC will review the World Cup final rule and allow the teams to share the trophy in case of a tie in super over.

New Zealand lost the World Cup final after the match was tied twice, and the winner was decided on the most number of boundaries.

“I’m sure when they were writing the rules, they never expected a World Cup final like that. I’m sure it’ll be reviewed.” Stead said.

On sharing the trophy, he added: “Perhaps when you play over seven weeks, and you can’t be separated on the final day then that is something that should be considered. It’s a very, very hollow feeling that you can play 100 overs and score the same amount of runs and still lose the game – but that’s the technicalities of the sport.”

The World Cup final was watched by more than 2 billion people across the globe, and it will go down in history as the most celebrated One Day International of all time. The two teams played an excellent cricket over 100 overs, and it was only because of the boundary rule that a World Cup winner was decided.
