Didn't see match as in Tokyo ,cricket not popular enough here to warrant coverage on TV.
Followed the game on my tablet via cricinfo . It was 3.00 am in the morning when the super over was on ,seemed to go on for ever .
Tie was a fair result for me as have a foot in both camps but someone had to be a winner .
Nice to see the Old Country finally win a World Cup again even if it was the cricket one.

Buzzing england won like but a couple of them.rules are absolute bullshit really arent they :lol:

How the fuck can six be awarded because the ball came.off stokes bat and went to the boundary .surely it sjould be four? Same as it would be had the ball went to the boumdary off the delivery and theyd ran two before the ball reach the rope.

And also winning because you hit more boundaries in your innings. Wtf is that shite all about :lol:

Id be fucking livid if england lost the world cup to then two rules mind

Welcome to the world of overthrows. I thought it was unfair despite scoring the same as New Zealand. Them having lost less wickets didn't count

I hope to Christ the country goes Ashes-daft again like 05. The fact that there's a massive opportunity to ramp up the momentum a fortnight after today's events could be crucial. An opportunity that cannot be missed.

it was 05 that got me into cricket. Watching as much cricket as possible. Stood in Ashington High School's (home to Harmison and Mark Wood) lunch hall watching as much of the action on my lunch break as possible. Didn't know the rules but it didn't matter. Racing home to the nearest house of all the lads to watch the end of the days play. Great memories from a sport that I used to think was just the irritating 'filler' sport that Sky Sports News used to fill in quiet periods of the day on their news channel.
2005 for me too what a series that was, still remember it to this day, but today OMG i have never seen game like it, its top of the list sports wise for me, their is only one thing that can come close to coming join first.. we have that chance next summer.. ;):cool:

1.
They'd ran 2 and the throw hit his bat and went for 4 overthrows. It's not rocket surgery

2. The rules defined by the ICC, the overseers of the game, before a ball was bowled in the tournament.

If it had not reached the boundary, it would have been two runs only, even if they had ran more

An anomaly in the laws.

They would have took it all day long

England won the tournament as we beat the top three teams, four games running

Nz twice, India and Australia

No question england deserved it
