OH DEAR, HOW SAD, NEVER MIND

the revelation that, according to the laws of the game, the umpires in the CWC final should have awarded England only five runs from the overthrows resulting from when the fielded ball hit Ben Stokes' bat because the batsman had not crossed for the second run when the ball was thrown in.

In that event NZL would have won the game.

Oh dear, how sad, never mind ... cricket wuz the winner ... wasn't it?

And they'll talk about it for years!

If this happened to the ABs the howling would shatter windows. But for the BCs there has been stiff upper lip and dignified acceptance.

England also benefited from an Umpires "mistake" when they beat India.
