Amid the criticism over umpires’ decision to give an extra run when Guptill’s throw struck Ben Stokes’ bat in World Cup final, his compatriot James Anderson has revealed the all-rounder had actually asked umpires to take away the four overthrows which turned out to be decisive in England’s triumph over New Zealand. Former Australian umpire Simon Taufel had also said the costly ruling in the final a “clear mistake.”
