Australian veteran bowler Shane Warne believes that the throw to Ben Stokes in the ICC World Cup final was to be given a dead ball. The opinion given by former spinner Shane Warne is also important because he is a member of the MCC's World Cricket Committee and will also review the decision taken by the umpires in the World Cup finals on that ball.
England had won four runs from a controversial throw in the super overs of the final and these four were also decisive in England's win over New Zealand. Chasing a victory target of 242 runs in the final match of the World Cup, England's batsmen were bowled out for two in the final overs. While the fielder's throw hit Ben Stokes' bat while taking the second run, ben stokes the ball and went across the boundary, leading to four runs in England's account. Six runs were awarded to England after field umpire Kumar Dharamsena spoke to his fellow umpire. England had lost the match after that.
Shane Warne added, "I am in the committee which is reviewing it and I think the law of the game is very right. I have suggested that the ball should be a dead ball as soon as the batsman's body is hit, whether it goes to the boundary or not.
