Re: Cricket World Cup 2019 Discussion Thread!
They had to pick something to declare a winner on in the event of 2 ties, the odds of which had to be microscopic.
What was that rule that got South Africa knocked out in a tie against Australia back in 1999? who won the last match or something? it wasn't ideal but that was the rule.
They could have gone with other logical things, like head to head record in the group stage, in which case England win. Or who finished higher in the table. England win. Or better net run rate. England win.
Anyway, it was a great game, I was glad it was over as I'd had to lie down on the living room floor by the end, my nerves couldn't take it, but it's one no one will ever forget. I do hope the Kiwis get a win in something else soon as they looked so gutted it was hard to see, please go on to win everything you can that's not against England!
