England has won the 2019 edition of ICC Cricket World Cup at the historic Lord’s Cricket ground in London. England beat New Zealand in the super over to lift their maiden world cup.
In the super over, England batted first and put 15 runs on the board with two boundaries. Chasing the target of sixteen runs, Martin Guptill and Jimmy Neesham opened for New Zealand and they started hitting right from the first ball. In the second ball, Neesham bought the Kiwis close to the victory as he hit a six over the cow corner boundary.
The team at the end needed 2 runs off 1 ball, and in the final delivery Guptill whipped away in front of deep square and comfortably completed the single, but as they were running for the second run, a perfect throw from Roy had Buttler knocks off the stumps. The match ended in a tie, but the England team were awarded the match for their superior boundary count.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the wild World Cup Final:
Congratulations, @englandcricket! 🏆

This is why we go on about this sport. I know it's annoying. And I know we can't justify some of our reasons why you should watch it.
But this is why. This is what it does to people. What it does to us. It could do this for you, too.
Cricket. Fucking cricket!

Not only is that arguably one of the greatest cricket matches of all time it is arguably one of the greatest moments in all sports. We’ve never seen anything like that before and we probably never will again. #CWC19

A World Cup final.
Two teams that have never won a World Cup.
A Super Over.
Scores tied after the Super Over.
That is the greatest ODI that has ever been played. End of story.#CWC19Final
