HIGHLIGHTS

  • England hit 26 boundaries while New Zealand managed only 17
  • England were declared World Cup 2019 winners despite tied Super Over vs New Zealand in final
  • England won their 1st-ever men's 50-over title at Lord's on Sunday
England were crowned world champions for the 1st time in men's cricket history after they beat New Zealand in the thrilling World Cup 2019 final at the Lord's Cricket Ground on Sunday.
Scorecards, somtimes, don't tell you the entire story, the say. It's entirely true for the World Cup 2019 finals as New Zealand realised that cricket is a game of fine margins in the hardest way possible. New Zealand posted 241/8 in 50 overs. England finished with exactly the same total but were all-out in their quota of 50 overs.
The World Cup 2019 final was tied but a Super Over was played to decide the champions. In a freaky outcome, even the Super Over was tied with both teams managing 15 runs in 6 balls each. However, England were crowned world champions as they had hit more boundaries during the match -- 17 for New Zealand and 26 for the hosts.
There was delight for Eoin Morgan's men but heartbreak for Kane Williamson's side as the cricket fraternity errupted after having witnessed one of the most thrilling matches ever. The stakes were high as both England and New Zealand had an opportunity to become first-time winners but, in the end it was decided by the number of boundaries hit in a low-scoring thriller.















What Eoin Morgan and Kane Williamson, the two captain said after the Super Over thriller
"Both the teams showed a lot of fight. It had to go down to the last ball, and then the last ball of the next little match, but a great match all round," losing captain Kane Williamson said.
Eoin Morgan added: "There was a lot in that game, jeez. I'd like to commiserate Kane and his team. The fight that they show is worth aspiring to. The example that they lead is hugely commendable to him and his team. It was a very hard-fought game."
