With his "hand on heart", <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/england/">England's</a> World Cup hero <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ben-stokes/news/">Ben Stokes</a> says he never asked the umpires to cancel the four runs off an overthrow during the epic final against New Zealand. <p></p> <p></p>One of the biggest turning points of the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/icc-cricket-world-cup-2019-200898/live-scores/new-zealand-vs-england-live-cricket-score-final-match-186724-full-scorecard.html">July 14 final</a> was the overthrow on the fourth ball of the final over bowled by <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/trent-boult/news/">Trent Boult</a>. <p></p> <p></p>In a bid to complete his second run, a diving Stokes, his bat outstretched, accidentally deflected the ball coming from the deep mid-wicket region to the third man boundary. <p></p> <p></p>"I saw all of that. I was thinking to myself, did I say that? But hand on heart, I did not go up to the umpires and say something like that to the umpires," Stokes said in the latest episode of BBC podcast 'Tuffers and Vaughan'. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Also Read: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/cricket-world-cup-2019-did-ben-stokes-ask-umpires-to-cancel-overthrown-boundary-in-final-869826">Did Ben Stokes ask umpires to cancel overthrow boundary in World Cup final?</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Stokes, who remained not out on 84 at the end of regulation play before swinging his bat again in the Super Over, said he apologised to <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/new-zealand/">New Zealand</a> skipper <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/kane-williamson/news/">Kane Williamson</a> and wicketkeeper <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/tom-latham/news/">Tom Latham</a> as the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/overthrow-rules-likely-to-be-reviewed-after-world-cup-final-controversy-870638">ball rolled past the boundary</a>. <p></p> <p></p>"I went straight to Tom Latham and said 'Mate, I am so sorry', looked over to Kane (Williamson) and said 'I'm sorry'," he said. <p></p> <p></p>Stokes' England teammate <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/james-anderson/news/">James Anderson</a> had earlier claimed that the all-rounder had asked for the four overthrow runs to be cancelled. <p></p> <p></p>Stokes said he has seen the 50th over of the England inning multiple times since the July 14 evening at Lord's and said it was "nerve-wracking to watch" despite the fact that his team is already a World Cup winner.
