But the commentators were categorical that 15 from NZ would see England win the world cup! No explanation was given why. To quote them: "NZ MUST score 2 or more off the last ball - anything else will give it to England"

Quite an amazing game. Who can say cricket is boring after that..

Well done to England. I am delighted to see a fellow Irishman lift the world cup :)

Oh I see, boundary count would determine the 2nd tie and Eng made more.

Just to add it was total boundaries combined from the match and the superover, not just the match or super over.

Also the TV coverage on Channel 4 did explain it quite clearly, you probably missed it, but it would have been handy for them to mention it again given how many non-cricket people would have been tuning in.

Yep, and seemingly all £93 million matched in normal time is voided because of the tie. Terrible rule - why not just have a 3 runner market like rugby?

I was watching on Sky and got terribly frustrated that they wouldn't say why 15 was useless.

Game of fine margins.

Some unreal pricing errors towards the end (e.g.. You could lay 1.5 NZ to score off the last ball) .. its more like 2.0 ), but its volatile stuff u need to be able to carry.

Looking back, I feel a lot of teams underperformed, and expect quite a shakeout from lots of personnel and coaching staff, from many countries.

It was painful to trade many of the games, as they were fairly one-sided, and had long dull periods.

Liquidity was decent. But there are reasons for that. I suspect the Betfair white labels will continue to feed money into the mkts.

Onwards etc.
