The match between New Zealand And England was full of drama and excitement. But the most exciting part of the drama was Ben Stokes bat deflection in the final over of the game. Trent Boult gave the delivery and Ben hit it hard. But a throw from the outfield deflected off the bat of diving Ben Stokes and rolled to the boundary. The umpire gave a signal for six runs- the two run by the batsman, plus an additional four for the overthrow boundary. CWC twitter page shared the reaction of Ben about the incident in their account. Have a look:

This incident really twisted the fate of Kiwi Players. During the fourth ball, England needed 9 runs but now they needed 3 runs in 2. So you can imagine how the situation was like. Ben was really embarrassed by the situation and put his both hand up in the air to establish his innocence. Later on, Ben said,

Not the way I wanted to do it, the ball going off my bat like that, I apologized to Kane. I said to Kane I’ll be apologizing for that for the rest of my life.

However, ICC is notorious for making stupid laws for the game. We are giving you the rule that made 6 runs possible directly from their rules book.

Rule 19.8: Overthrow or wilful act of a fielder

If the boundary results from an overthrow or from the wilful act of a fielder, the runs scored shall be

— any runs for penalties awarded to either side

— and the allowance for the boundary

— and the runs completed by the batsmen, together with the run in progress if they had

already crossed at the instant of the throw or act.

So we guess nothing will be changed now. We have to accept what has been determined. However, Cricket world will remember this peculiar incident for a long time to come.
