According to ESPNcricinfo, speaking at the team hoel, Stead said, "Perhaps when you play over a seven-week period and can't be separated on the final day, that is something should be considered as well."

He further added, "But again that's one consideration over a whole lot of things that went on over the World Cup. Everything will be reviewed, and I think that it's a good time to do it now. But probably just let the dust settle for a while."

England registered 26 boundaries in the match, while Kane Williamson's side notched 17.

Stead also feels that the rules will be reviewed, saying, "I'm sure it'll be reviewed (and) there's many different ways that they'll probably explore."

"It's a very, very hollow feeling that you can play 100 overs and score the same amount of runs and still lose the game, but that's the technicalities of sport," Stead told reporters.
