    Unbelievable scenes here at Lord’s as England are the new champions!

  • 12:18 AM IST

    WHAT A GAME THIS WAS! Surely worthy of a final. Also, to remind you all, we still do not have a clear winner. Even the Super Over was a tie. England won as they hit more boundaries. For now, let us summaries the game right from the start as it seems a long time from the start of the game.

    ENG vs NZ Live Updates: Jubilation scenes out there! England have won the World Cup for the very first time in the most dramatic manner.

    England are the new WORLD CHAMPIONS!

England vs New Zealand HIGHLIGHTS: Neither a tied game nor a spirited New Zealand could stop England from bringing the trophy home at the Lord’s on Sunday. It finally took a Super Over for England to be crowned winners of the 2019 World Cup. Eoin Morgan’s boys are the new world champions in the 50-over format of the gentleman’s game and the crown couldn’t have come at a better place than the historic Lord’s, the home of cricket.

Ben Stokes will go down in history as one of England’s best all-rounders. After all, he managed what even the great Ian Botham failed to achieve in Australia in 1992. England’s Mark Wood being run out off the last ball of the innings saw the game end in a tie and a Super Over followed. The first-ever Super Over in a World Cup final saw England score 15 runs before the Kiwis also ended on 15, but the hosts won due to more boundaries scored in the game.

England vs New Zealand MATCH HIGHLIGHTS: ENG (241-all out in 50 overs) beat NZ (241/8) to win World Cup

Time: 3:00 PM.
