“New Zealand might have lost the World cup finals but Cricket has emerged as winner, One winner but two champion teams.”
A World Cup final has just been tied off 50 overs, tied off the Super Over, and decided by superior boundary count. In a dramatic end to the World Cup finals, England defeated New Zealand on the basis of more boundaries to lift the prestigious Cricket World Cup 2019 at Lord’s.
After Eoin Morgan’s team finished with 241 all out in pursuit to New Zealand’s 241/8, the final came down to Super over.England’s Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler took 15 runs off Trent Boult’s over.New Zealand decided to send Martin Guptill and Jimmy Neesham,who hit six on second ball of Jofra Archer.With two runs required off last ball Guptill was run out trying to get the second run.Both team once again tied, England won due to a tie-break rule since they hit more boundaries.

Ben Stokes is the Man of the Match!
Kane Williamson named ‘player of the tournament’ for his leadership and scoring 578 runs in the World Cup. His tally of 578 runs is the highest by a captain in a single World Cup.He said: “It is not only the one run but there were many decisive moments. Congratulation to England for the way they played.Pitches have been different to what they expected, there has not been a lot of high scores. The boys showed a huge amount of heart to get to this stage and is happy with how they played throughout. Ends by saying the guys are shattered at the moment, it is very devastating, this is very tough to swallow but he is happy with how they played.”
Eoin Morgan credits the entire team and said: I’d like to commiserate Kane and his team. The example that they lead is hugely commendable to him and his team. On a tough wicket where everyone found it tough to score. Buttler and Stokes put together a partnership, and I thought that would take us deep, and it did. This has been a four-year- journey.To get over the line today means the world to us. I was being cooled down by Plunkett, which isn’t a good sign. Some of the support staff – not only the best in our team, but in the world, they really helped. Full credit to the two boys who went out for the Super over and did the job for England.
England are the new Champions of the World and New Zealand are the People’s Champ.
