The hosts won the match on the basis of a superior boundary count, even after scores were tied at Super Over. The rule received backlash.

Shastri tweeted, "Your composure and dignity viewing the sequence of events was remarkable. Your dignified grace and silence 48 hours since is simply remarkable. We know you have one hand on that WC. You not just Kane. You Kane and Able. God bless".

Also, another controversial incident was the overthrow which gifted England six runs, but should have been five according to rules.

Umpire Kumar Dharmasena awarded six runs; two run by batsmen (Stokes and Mark Wood) and four for the overthrow which went to the boundary. The decision somewhat tilted the game in England's favor, leading to a Super Over.
