England skipper Eoin Morgan after guiding England to the maiden World Cup victory admitted that he is unsettled about how the quadrennial tournament ended. The intense final contest was tied twice, once after the regulation overs, and then later, the super over. Morgan and Co won the match by the virtue of boundary count, England having scored 24 boundaries in their innings against New Zealand's 17.
Morgan admitted that he thinks it’s unfair that the result had to be decided this way when there was very little difference between both sides. He went on and called the game ‘balanced’ and said that he doesn’t think any point in the match defined the result.
The final is still fresh in people’s memory and has been called as the greatest World Cup final ever and even the greatest ODI match ever played the boundary count rule though has been widely criticised and fans all around have hailed Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson for the way he handled the result.
Morgan, who is known as a clear thinker and who has been credited to turn English cricket around is still finding it difficult to digest the chin of events that went down on Sunday, 14 July. He believes that no point of the game says that the Three Lions deserved to win more. He added that he is not sure if winning made it easier but knows that losing would be more difficult.
The match went to and fro between teams and there were times when one side looked as likely to win the game as the other. Morgan revealed that he has been talking to Williamson about the unusual final and both of them can’t come up with a rational explanation as to what how both teams dominated at different points in the match.
The 32-year-old, however, agreed that the final was probably the greatest ever cricket match. The Irishman believes that the game beat any other game at the amount of madness the game produced by a long way,
