Thing is, if Stokes knew we needed 3 off the last ball, he'd have swung properly and clubbed it away for four.


Absolutely this.

Not really this. As soon as we go down the ‘if/then’ route we have to start considering. If Ross Taylor hadn’t got one of the poorer LBW’s of the tournament, if Erasmus hadn’t had a shocker with Roy first ball, if Boult (a very capable and switched on outfielder) hadn’t inexplicably switched off at the key moment, if Stokes hadn’t (completely by accident) deflected the ball for four ot’s, if the umpires had implemented the overthrow rule correctly......

I’d rather just say, two excellent teams, game played in absolutely the right spirit (what a great example to set). Stokes was incredible, England are a great side and are absolutely deserved WC winners.

Only then can we say Stokes would have been better off needing 3, than needing 2 (which is quite a stretch to begin with).

We probably don’t need to debate sporting outcomes in the same way as we do politics.

on the radio last night Vaughan reported that Stokes went up to Jofra Archer before the super over and said "this over will not define you as a cricketer"

Quite the rehabilitation from his off the field issues. key performances all tournament and a real team man it seems

Bizarre team selection here.

Going in with 5 batsmen ( Denly???) and Moeen Ali who seems to have forgotten what a bat looks like.

A batsman light for sure, but good to see Sam Curran back involved.

recount requested on the number of batsmen?

Most of the bets placed so far seem more like hopeful punts rather than value spots
