Aftermath

International Cricket Council's (ICC) rule for One Day International (ODI) cricket at that time was: "a minimum of 25 overs have to be bowled to the side batting second to constitute a match".[16] Indian cricketers criticized the rule ICC Champions Trophy after rain washed-out the final twice. Former Indian wicket-keeper Farokh Engineer about the rule that the "it's absolutely daft", and it "doesn't make any sense".[17] Sanjay Manjrekar, former Test cricketer, said that the ICC "should look at that rule straight away and change it", and the "obvious thing is to continue from where they left off". Ajit Wadekar, former Indian captain, called the matches "boring" and asked the ICC to revise the group format for the tournament to preclude meaningless matches in the first round.[17]
