England cricket team held the world cup the trophy for the very first time in its home ground after defeating New Zealand. The game was full of drama and everyone who watched it felt the adrenaline rush regardless of their nationality.
New Zealand played first and put up a score of 240 for England to chase. England tried very hard to chase it. It was neck to neck competition but in the end, they only managed to bring it up to tie. According to the ICC’s rule, when there is a tie in the finals, both the teams get a super over to play. Now England went first and scored 15 runs off 6 balls. New Zealand chased the score and again it was a tie.
Whoa! This has never happened in the history of the world cup.
Now that, super over was also a tie, according to ICC rule whichever team had given the maximum number of boundaries will be declared the winner. And that’s how England won the cup.
These two teams were totally worthy of a final. See how twitterians are going crazy over the match, result, and on-field drama.

Congratulations to England on winning the Cricket World Cup. New Zealand were outstanding and never gave up, that deflection over-throw of Stokes being a huge turning point, tragic for @BLACKCAPS , so near yet so far but they must be very proud. #CWCFinal19
