Cricket World Cup final ‘rematch’! ‘It’s possible!’
After the most dramatic final in the sporting history, it was England who claimed the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 trophy shocking New Zealand in the bizarre ‘boundary count’ rule.
Could it be imaginable a ‘rematch’ of the Cricket World Cup is happening! New Zealand Cricket head David White says “it’s possible” but not in their thinking at the moment.
New Zealand will host England for two Test matches and five T20Is in October-November this year.
Asked during a chat show on Radio Sport about the possibility of changing one of the T20Is into a ‘grudge match’ ODI, White replied,
“It’s not on the table at the moment. It’s a novel idea. We’ve agreed to T20s at this stage in preparation for the World Cup in the next 12 months but it’s certainly a novel idea.”
It can be noted that the two Test matches between New Zealand and England later this year are not part of the ICC World Test Championship because it was scheduled before the new competition emerged.
The Kiwi cricket boss White saw prominent reasons for changing one of the scheduled T20 internationals to be changed to an unprecedented World Cup ‘rematch’.
“These ones actually can be agreed amongst the countries because they’re not part of the Test match championship or not part of qualification for the next [T20] Cricket World Cup, that starts in 12 months time,” said White.
“So it’s possible. Interesting,” he added.
