In the 12th edition of the championship the hosts, England scripted a fairytale by winning the title for the first time. All their hard work in white-ball cricket over the last four years paid dividends. On the other side, New Zealand suffered heartbreak after reaching extremely close to the finish line. All in all the game served the purpose of getting the ODI format the required charm.
It was a tournament which was full of dramatic moments and that helped in building up the excitement among the audience. Especially the use of DRS ( Decision Review System) was an important aspect of this tournament as it determined the fortunes of different sides. It has also helped the officials avoid blunders on the field.
Here is the list of captains and their DRS usage ratings
1) Afghanistan, Gulbadin Naib – 5.5
The Asian team buckled under the pressure of stage freight coupled with the off-field issues. As some of their stars had a disappointing campaign the side bowed out without registering a single win in the championship. Overall the Afghanistan team didn’t play to its potential under the leadership of Gulbadin Naib.
He always took decisions without consulting with the seniors of the team. Against Pakistan, the team lost its review in the 7th over when the young wicketkeeper Ikram Ali Khil persuaded him to take the call. Afterward, two decisions went against the Afghan team including the dismissal of Imad Wasim where DRS would have helped them get their first win.
