  • England made history as they won their maiden World Cup crown by beating New Zealand in a thrilling Super Over at Lord's on Sunday

England lifted their maiden ICC World Cup trophy, beating a battle-hardened New Zealand in a nerve-wracking final that was decided via a dramatic Super Over here Sunday.

Reacting on the same, director-producer Anurag Kashyap took to his Twitter handle to rant against the ICC rule that led to England's win. Comparing the cricket match with a movie shoot, Anurag said, "Hamari shooting cancel hoti hai baarish ki wajah se toh hum duckworth Lewis method nahin use karte hain , shooting afle din karte hain ..."

He also used some derrogatory words for the 'biased' rule and wrote: "There is a serious problem with the your rules @ICC @cricketworldcup" [sic]

Kashyap also added that film-making is nothing compared to what he witnessed on 14th July 2019. Read his full tweets below -

Meanwhile, skipper Kane Williamson at the post-match conference said that it is 'pretty hard to swallow' the defeat. He said: "I suppose you never thought of asking this question and I never thought I would have to answer this. It's pretty hard to swallow when two teams have worked really hard to reach this point. It's what it is, the rules were there at the start, no one thought it would come down to this. It's a pretty hard loss to swallow. The rules are there. It is something you don't consider when you go out to play. I didn't even know what the boundary count was, but we were behind."

"Just gutted. The guys put a huge amount of work to play the World Cup final. There were a couple of uncontrollable situations in the match, but I can't take away anything from England's campaign. Either side walking with the title today probably feels fortunate," he added.
