Fans flooded Michael Vaughan’s post with replies by recalling England’s 2019 World Cup win on the ‘boundary count’ rule.

However, as per ICC rules at the time, England were declared winners because of scoring more boundaries throughout the game. Fans were quick to remind Michael Vaughan about 2019 final immediately after his response of having no reserve day in the IND W vs ENG W semi-final.
