Neesham takes a dig at ICC’s new change in boundary rule
New Zealand all-rounder posted a hilarious tweet on International Cricket Council after they removed the boundary rule for deciding winners in a tied match.
ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 ended in a big controversy due to the tied final and the tied super over. The final between England and New Zealand ended in a tie after a heroic knock from Ben Stokes.
As usual, super over system was used to decide the winner of the big final. Unfortunately, the super over also ended in a tie and made more irony there. In the end, England were declared as the winners of the as they scored more no.of boundaries than New Zealand in the whole match.
That rule created a huge controversy among all the people around the game. In the recent time also Cricket Australia disagreed with that rule and they announced that they will have multiple super overs to decide the winner of a match in such circumstances.
Now International Cricket Council has finally changed the boundary rule and will have multiple super overs incase of a tied super over. Following the announcement from ICC, Jimmy Neesham posted a tweet, trolling that it’s too late from ICC.
The all-rounder was in the non-striker’s end when New Zealand tied the super over in the final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. “Next on the agenda: Better binoculars for the Ice spotters on the Titanic,” Neesham quoted in his tweet.
