World Cup Locker Room: Looking back at perhaps the best final match ever

The final match of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019, between New Zealand and England, was unlike anything that fans had ever seen before. In fact, even those who track the game professionally had never come across anything like it. Apart from being a great spectacle, it also sparked many debates. Every one knew that England had one, but exactly ‘how’ they had won is what people found puzzling. Was there a misinterpretation of the rules? Was it a wrong call by the umpire? Did a grammarian need to step in to interpret the use of a single comma in the rules of the game? In this episode, Daksh, Gaurav and Indian Express’s National Sports Editor, Sandeep Dwivedi look back at the match and breakdown what happened.
