Williamson-led New Zealand is still trying to coming to terms with the gut-wrenching defeat against England in the World Cup's greatest summit clash. Especially after Cricketers, current and former, shared New Zealand's pain on losing the title on boundary count with many of them asking for a "serious look" into the rule, slammed as "absurd".
However, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter to slam the ICC’s boundary count rule but in a hilarious way as he shared a witty analogy to have his say in the matter.
T 3227 - आपके पास 2000 रूपये, मेरे पास भी 2000 रुपये,
आपके पास 2000 का एक नोट, मेरे पास 500 के 4 ...
कौन ज्यादा अमीर???
ICC - जिसके पास 500 के 4 नोट वो ज्यादा रईस.. #Iccrules😂😂🤣🤣

Opting to bat, New Zealand had put up a modest 241 for eight. In reply, England ended at the same score leading to the one-over eliminator.
In the Super Over, England batted first and the duo of Ben Stokes, who kept the hosts in the game with a brilliant 84 off 98 balls, and Jos Buttler made 15.
New Zealand also ended at the same score but for the loss of one wicket, paving the way for an English victory on boundary count.
