The heart of Indian fans was broken
Jimmy Neesham played all five balls in the Super Over for New Zealand, but two runs were needed off the last ball and Martin Guptill was on strike. Guptill played a shot towards mid on and ran for two runs. But, he was able to complete only one run and was run out. This run out of Martin Guptill proved to be decisive and then fans on Twitter compared this run out to Dhoni’s run out and said ‘Jais Karni-Wai Bharni’. Fans said that Martin Guptill became a hero in the semi-final match against India after Dhoni was run out, but he was run out on the last ball of the Super Over in the World Cup final, which slipped the World Cup from New Zealand’s hands.
There was a lot of ruckus in the final
Apart from this, when Ben Stokes was batting in the 50th over of England’s innings, he played a shot. The ball went towards mid-off and was thrown by Martin Guptill, the throw hit Stokes’s bat and from there it crossed the boundary. A total of 6 runs came off this ball, due to which England returned to the match and the match was tied. The host England team got the benefit of ICC rules, according to which if the super over is also tied, then the team with more boundaries will be considered as the winner. With this, England won the World Cup for the first time. However, later the ICC changed this rule.
