ICC Should Have Considered Sharing The World Cup, Says New Zealand Coach Gary Stead

England were crowned the World Cup 2019 champions despite having tied the scores of both the final match and the Super Over with New Zealand at Lords on Sunday. A boundary-count tie-breaker rule, set by the International Cricket Council (ICC), gave an advantage to England. While many cricketers and fans criticised the ICC's rule and asked for its review, New Zealand head coach Gary Stead said the international council should have considered sharing the World Cup in case of a tie.

Asked during a media interaction at the team hotel whether he would have preferred New Zealand being declared joint winners, Stead was open to the suggestion. "Perhaps when you play over a seven-week period and can't be separated on the final day, that is something should be considered as well," ESPNcricinfo quoted Stead as saying.
