Just In! England have become the new world champions are beating New Zealand in the super over for CWC 2019 final match by boundary county. OMG, what a world cup final it was. Drama, Emotions and broken hearts, but in the end England claim their first ever World Cup Trophy in the history of the ODI cricket.
It all started with Kiwi Skipper Kane Williamson winning the toss and electing to bat first. With marvelous innings from Henry Nicholllas 55 and Tom Latham 47, New Zealand put a lower total of 241 for 8 at a slow pitch of Lord’s.
Therefore, England needed 242 to win this match in a heroic fashion, but a sudden collapse of four early wickets at 86, left no choice for Jos Buttler and Chris Ben Stokes to play a steady innings. Butler scored 59, but it was Ben Stokes all alone on the crease who stayed on the crease till the end and saved the day for England.
In the last over, England needed 16 runs to win this match, but they succeeded to take 15. As a result, the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match was shifted to the super over.
Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes than again, came to bat for England in the Super Over. With steel nerves, Ben Stokes successfully put 15 runs target for New Zealand in the Super Over. So, Kiwi team needed to chase 15 runs on the board to claim the first ever title of World Cup.
Jimmy Neesham and Martin Guptill could only make 15 runs. As a result, the CWC 2019 final was tied between New Zealand and England. However, due to two boundaries in the CWC final Super Over, England were concluded as the new world champions.
What a day for England Cricket fans. Ben Stokes a Hero. The Inventors of Cricket claim their first ever World Champions Title in the history of Cricket. Congratulations England!
