During the chase of two runs, England got a four which was the resultant hit to the bat of Ben Stokes due to mis throw from Black Caps fielder Martin Guptil has made the England team earn six runs in its bucket. Per the Test team-mate Jimmy Anderson, this was called to be decisive during the summit clash win over New Zealand on Sunday.
Anderson added, on to this Ben Stokes has asked the umpires to take back the four overthrows as many aired their mind that England would have got only five runs which would have lead to run short with the New Zealand, a total of 241 for 8. Experts further added that England wouldn’t have won the match and it would have resulted as stump over if the Ben Stokes was on his way.
Anderson said on BBC, “The etiquette in cricket is if the ball is thrown at the stumps and it hits you and goes into the gap in the field you don’t run. But if it goes the boundary, in the rules it’s four and you can’t do anything about it.”
Post summit clash, Stokes said that he might have to say sorry for the rest of his life for the extra runs he labeled on.
