I feel, ICC have some funny rules.
When they calculate team points, they consider, overs used, wickets lost etc.. but in the final they counted boundariesscored to decide the winner[frustration]

Both teams scored equal runs, but New Zealand lost only 8 wickets whereas England was all out - Why couldn't ICC consider this aspect to declare the winners ??[roll]

Bad luck New Zealand

Yeah I didn't like the decisions made by ICC in the yesterday's match and they have also made lots of mistakes in this tournament.

Sharing the cup with both the teams or refusing to take, would have been fair. England should have done this but hey they are British; they don't give up easily. [;)]

Anyhow, it was a great game and made history. Tie in 50 overs and again tie in super over! Such a game didn't happen before and may not happen in future.
