Most boundaries is a terrible tie breaker but wickets lost is not much better.

Just have another super over but both teams have to use different batsmen and bowlers, like a penalty shootout requires teams to cycle through their penalty takers. I'd love to see Jos Buttler chucking down some pies in an effort to defend 9 runs off the 10th or 11th super over.

Every team agreed to the rules before the tournament. Now two of those rules have hit the final in the nuts, every one is crying. :D

I guaran-f'ing-tee you, if there is another final like this, no rule would satisfy the peanut gallery, somebody will be unhappy. These critical article writers are some of the most disingenuous arm chair sport intellectuals out there.

Exactly. Much better idea... and for what its worth, a team like England would have a huge edge in this scenario, given how they have the most depth in batting/bowling.

haha well said !

in truth no one really thought it could be that close and therefore....didn't think about a super over, whether 6 was 5 or the number of boundaries each side hit.

it was a good World Cup, some excellent games and a final some of us(me definatley) cant really believe happened.

for that we thank the cricket Gods who were with us on he day  :)    or...if you believe Rash said to Morgan ''Allah is with us'

having a multi national team maybe means we have more Gods on our side.

Yup. It's fair and it also benefits teams with more depth/all-round talent. It also penalises you for losing a wicket in the Super Over because that removes what you'd assume would be one of your stronger batsmen for the next super over if one more is needed.

England are the best ODI side in the world and worthy World Champions but man, a 10 team World Cup is awful, this interminable World Cup format was awful and number of boundaries as the tie breaker is awful.

Cricket is the best thing ever in the history of anything and anywhere but the powers that be consistently strive to ensure that it never grows to attract a newer audience because they don't have a goddamn clue about anything and can't look beyond the next tv revenue deal. See: SuperSub rule and the forthcoming Test Championship final and The Hundred in whatever guise it ends up taking.

Greatest thing in the universe and it's run by complete idiots.

Nobody is moaning about who won.. most neutrals loved the game and think the best side in the world (England) thoroughly deserve this. But that doesnt mean we have to staunchly defend the boundary countback rule, does it?

Brilliant. While I love the Pakistan idea, not sure how that would work when Pakistan are in the final. Option 4 involving a real duck and bags of breadcrumbs is clearly the fairest way to decide a world cup...
