    Anyways NZ has 4 years to win it .....If England had lost at home chasing 240 it would have been pretty devastating.....

    It now turns out, although too late to anything about it, that England were erroneously award 6 runs on that 3rd to last ball when the ball hit Stokes bat and rolled out to the boundary.

    The rules say that the batsman will only be granted those runs made before the fielder has thrown the ball. The umpires should only have granted the batsman 1 run instead of 2 runs, thus making a total of 5.

    This is as was reported by the games reputed best umpire.

    Also instead of Stokes facing the last 2 balls it would have been Englandís worst batsman.

    But thatís how the dice rolls sometimes.

    Note that Stokes knew he had to score just 1 run with the last ball to tie the game . If he'd had to score 2 his approach to that ball would have been different - he would have aimed for a boundary - he might not have got it but it's now a mute point.
    Not much doubt that Williamson was the smartest captain on view.
