New Zealand players were dejected after the loss as they ended up on the losing side despite the scores being level after 50 overs and after the Super Over.England were declared winners as they had scored more boundaries (in the match and in the super over). While New Zealand scored 17 boundaries in total, England were far more superior in the department, having blazed 26 fours and sixes.Chasing 16 in the Super Over, New Zealand managed 15 but England won because they scored more boundaries in the match and in the Super Over.Even the English players sympathised with their opponents as there was nothing left to chose between the two sides. It was only the new ICC rule which separated the two teams after they played out a World Cup final for the ages.”There was a lot in that game, jeez. I’d like to commiserate Kane (Williamson) and his team. The fight that they show is worth aspiring to. The example that they lead is hugely commendable to him and his team. It was a very hard-fought game,” Eoin Morgan said at the post-match presentation.So close, yet so far. But so much to be proud of. #CWC19 | #BackTheBlackCaps | #CWC19Final World Cup (@cricketworldcup) July 14, 2019Opening batsman Jonny Bairstow also offered commiserations to the New Zealand team.advertisement”Massive commiserations to the New Zealand boys. Edges one way, edges another. The way the guys came back in the Super Over was fantastic, and Stokes was huge. To play at Lord’s is one thing, to play a World Cup final at Lord’s is something else,” Bairstow said after the match.England players were finding it hard to speak after the game as they were overwhelmed with emotions and happiness. But somehow the commentators managed to get some reactions out of the players. This is what they had to say after winning their maiden 50-over World Cup trophy.Jos Buttler “I thought I’d seen everythign in cricket, and that game was just ridiculous. Hard to put it in words. We wanted to take it deep. We didn’t feel like the run rate would be an issue if we were both there in the end. A couple of good partnerships, we’ll chase this down. Trying to put pressure back on New Zealand. Don’t know what happened there in the end. Unbelievable.”Joe Root: “It’s almost written in the stars for Ben. Everything he’s gone through, I can’t be more proud and pleased for him.”Liam Plunkett: “Hasn’t sunk in yet. What a finish that was. Hats off to the Kiwi boys. Over the moon.”Ben Stokes: “I’m pretty lost for words. All the hard work over four years to get here, and to be champions of the world is an amazing feeling. Playing against New Zealand is always a great event to be a part of. They’re a seriously good team, they’re a bunch of good lads. I spoke to Kane, I apologised (for the deflection for overthrows).”Jofra Archer: “Was pretty sure I was going to bowl it. Just had a chat with Morgs (starts chuckling) heart’s still racing, sorry. It’s probably the only tournament I’ve ever won in my life. From the beginning, the guys did so well. Would have been disappointed if we didn’t win. They’ve been a really good family to me.”Also Read | Why England won the World Cup 2019 even after Super Over tie?Also Read | World Cup 2019 Final Prize Money: ENG get USD 4 million, NZ pocket USD 2 millionAlso Read | England win World Cup 2019 despite tied Super Over vs New ZealandAlso Read | Rohit Sharma finishes with most runs in World Cup 2019For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Traffic death in NL triggers air bag investigations in US Canada

by Tom Krisher, The Associated Press Posted Aug 4, 2016 11:20 am MDT Last Updated Aug 4, 2016 at 4:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email DETROIT – The death of a Canadian driver has sparked a new investigation into a potentially deadly airbag problem affecting vehicles on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border.Fatal airbag deployments in Canada are rare, but the July 8 fatality of a motorist in Newfoundland and Labrador marked the first time that a Canadian has been killed by an exploding airbag inflator, Transport Canada says.The ruptured inflator on the 2009 Hyundai Elantra sent metal fragments into the passenger cabin, killing the driver in what officials described as a low-speed collision. The reason the airbag ruptured remains unknown.Transport Canada and the RCMP are investigating the cause of the incident, as well as the manufacturer — ARC Automotive Inc. of Knoxville, Tenn., which is already under investigation by American authorities. Transport Canada said ARC is co-operating with investigators.Transport Canada said it is still determining what model vehicles may be affected by the new airbag problem. The agency’s American counterpart is trying to determine the entire population of ARC inflators in the U.S., which it estimates at eight million in older vehicles made by General Motors, Fiat Chrysler, Hyundai and Kia.Transport Canada says the safety benefits of airbags, which rely on controlled explosions that rapidly fill airbags in order to protect people in crashes, continue to outweigh the risks.The death and investigations bring fresh urgency to a probe opened last year by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration after an Ohio woman was injured by an ARC inflator. The U.S. safety agency on Thursday upgraded its investigation to an engineering analysis, a step closer to a recall.In Canada, Transport Minister Marc Garneau could order a recall without having to wait for the company to do so.“Any decision to recall is based on careful, verified information. At this point, the department’s investigation — which is still preliminary — is needed to understand the issue,” said Garneau spokeswoman Delphine Denis.U.S. investigators began looking at ARC inflators in July of last year after getting reports that the Ohio woman was seriously hurt when her 2002 Chrysler Town & Country minivan crashed and the inflator ruptured. The agency said it also found another injury involving someone in a 2004 Kia Optima midsize car. In both cases, the inflators were made at ARC’s factory in Knoxville, according to agency documents.In the probe, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration focused on inflators made from 2000 until September of 2004. The population includes about 2.6 million that were sold to General Motors.According to NHTSA, the Elantra in the Newfoundland crash had an ARC inflator that was made in China, but it’s unknown whether any of the same inflators were used in vehicles sold in the U.S. ARC has confirmed that the Canadian Elantra inflator “was substantially the same design” as the one used in at least one other U.S. model, the 2004 Kia Optima.The administration said in a statement that it would direct the collection and testing of ARC inflators as it tries to determine what caused them to explode with too much force. The agency said it will focus on determining the entire population of ARC inflators in the U.S. and whether any inflators made in China were sold in the U.S.Although the results are similar, the ARC problem is different from one that resulted in the recall of 69 million inflators in the U.S. made by Takata Corp.Takata inflators have been blamed for at least 11 and as many as 14 deaths worldwide, as well as hundreds of injuries. Takata uses the explosive chemical ammonium nitrate to inflate airbags, but the chemical can degrade over time and burn too quickly, blowing apart metal inflator canisters.Canada’s colder — and therefore less humid — climate for most of the year largely minimizes the risk of the chemical degrading and heating too quickly, requiring it to be replaced.ARC uses a small amount of ammonium nitrate to ignite another chemical that inflates airbags, and authorities say they are not looking at ammonium nitrate as the cause. They are looking into whether a manufacturing problem causes a vent to become blocked in the ARC inflators. With no place for the gas to escape, a metal inflator canister can be blown into pieces.____With files from Jordan Press in Ottawa; AP’s Rob Gillies in Toronto and Dee-Ann Durbin in Detroit contributed to this report.

Investigators in the U.S. and Canada on Thursday, Aug. 4, 2016, are looking into whether the death of a Canadian driver was caused by a faulty air bag inflator made by ARC Automotive Inc. Authorities say the driver was killed when an ARC inflator ruptured in a crash in Newfoundland and sent shrapnel into a 2009 Hyundai Elantra.(Adam Lau/Knoxville News Sentinel via AP) MANDATORY CREDIT read more
