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.
