There has been lots of criticism worldwide over ICC’s boundaries rule to decide the winner. Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar too expressed his views that another Super Over should decide the winner instead of boundaries.
The boundary count rule of ICC has been highly criticized by the former players and veteran celebrities ever since New Zealand lost the final of ICC World Cup 2019 to England.
The drama-filled final match ended with a tie, followed by a Super Over which also ended with a tie. But with the virtue of hitting more boundaries, England was declared the winner.
This boundary count rule is under severe scrutiny and literally, everyone is trolling ICC over it. Former cricketer and legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar is also against this rule. Sachin criticized the boundary count rule for deciding the winner if a situation like this arises.
He further said that another Super Over should definitely be the right choice to decide the winner instead of bringing the record of a number of boundaries to snatch away victory from the other team.
Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar further added that not only in the World Cup but in all the other tournaments this should be the basis of declaring the winner.
Earlier Amitabh Bachchan too took this to Twitter and criticized the boundary count rule of IC to decide the winner. Cricket has been surrounded with controversial rules, but it’s hard to overlook such a rule that got exposed in the World Cup final.
T 3227 – आपके पास 2000 रूपये, मेरे पास भी 2000 रुपये,
आपके पास 2000 का एक नोट, मेरे पास 500 के 4 …
कौन ज्यादा अमीर???
ICC – जिसके पास 500 के 4 नोट वो ज्यादा रईस.. #Iccrules😂😂🤣🤣

Though these rules have been made beforehand changing them for good should always be the best decision. After all, it takes real guts to reach the finals of World Cup, and when the victory gets snatched from a team just because of these contradictory rules, it puts a big question mark on how cricket is progressing with time.
We hope in the coming times ICC will decide to abandon this rule and will bring super over into play to decide the winner.
