New Zealand coach Gary Stead is calling on ‘cricket chiefs’ to consider allowing teams to share the World Cup if a final is tied again.
The Black Caps were beaten by England in a dramatic final at Lord’s due to the English scoring more boundaries.
It came after the teams’ 50 over scored were tied and also level after a super over.
On his proposal, Stead believes that after playing for a seven-week period and two teams cannot be separated on the final day, sharing the trophy should be considered.
“I’m sure when they were writing the rules they never expected a World Cup final like that,” Stead said.
“I’m sure it’ll be reviewed.”
England were crowned men’s world champions for the first time after scoring more boundary fours and sixes – 26 to New Zealand’s 17.
The Kiwis were also unfortunate after England was awarded one extra run in the final over of their innings.
The champion were given six runs when a fielder’s throw hit Ben Stokes’ bat as he dived to complete a second run and went for four.
However the laws appears to say that was one too many.
