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.
