Nearly after a week since England cricket team won their maiden cup by beating New Zealand at the finale, on the basis of boundaries count, the skipper of England cricket team Eoin Morgan claimed that he felt the result was not fair.
Talking about the controversial finish of the World Cup 2019 tournament, Eoin Morgan felt the result was not fair when there was so little to separate England and New Zealand at the finale. He said:
“I don’t think it’s fair to have a result like that when there’s very little between the sides,”
He added: “I don’t think there was one moment that you could say: ‘That actually cost the game there.’ It was quite balanced.
I’m black and white. I’m normally going: ‘I know. I was there, that happened.’ [But] I can’t stick my finger on where the game was won and lost.”
However, the turning point of the game came in the final over of England’s chase when Martin Guptill’s throw from the deep deflected off Ben Stokes’ bat to give England four extra runs in overthrows. But Eoin Morgan doesn’t feel it made it easier for him. He said:
“I’m not sure winning it makes it any easier,” he said. “A little bit [troubled], because there’s no defining moment that you’d say: ‘Yes, we thoroughly deserved it.’ It’s just been crazy.”
“I spoke to Kane [Williamson] over the last couple of days on numerous occasions and none of us has come up with a rational explanation as to the various times we gave them the game and they gave it back to us. Like me, he can’t get his head around everything.”
Concluding it, he said: “It would be more difficult to lose, of course.”
