Actor Paresh Rawal slammed ICC for focussing on changing MSD’s gloves rather than doing something about the rules which go against the spirit of the game.

Earlier, New Zealand skipper said, “No one lost the final. At the end of the day nothing separated us, no one lost the final, but there was a crowned winner and there it is.”
