England crowned ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Champions for the first time
England won their first-ever Cricket World Cup trophy on Sunday 14th July after defeating New Zealand in the final of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 at Lord’s.
New Zealand captain, Kane Williamson after winning the toss decided to bat first. New Zealand scored 241/8 in 50 overs in the first innings, the host side England replied with 241 runs with all wickets to fall in their allotted overs.
The CWC19 Final Match ended in a Tie then on a Super Over England scored 15/0 with the two batsmen Jos Butler and Ben Stokes bowled by Boult, and in reply, New Zealand scored 15/1 with their two Batsman Guptill and Nesham bowled by Jofra Archer.
The one over eliminator also resulted in a tie.
- Ben Stokes is the Player of the Match.
- Kane Williamson is the Player of the Tournament.
They’ve been through even more close games than any various other teams in this competition, and also until today, they had been finishing on the right end of those results. Today, in the closest finish conceivable – tied match, tied Super Over, decided on boundaries – they have come out on the wrong side.
It could so easily have been New Zealand today, but you can’t grudge Eoin Morgan’s team. They have two superfast wicket-takers for all conditions in Archer and Wood, and their batting looks so a lot extra battle-hardened, as we saw today throughout that partnership between Ben Stokes and also Jos Buttler.
Here’s the final boundary count, the sufficient victory margin for England is 26-17. It’s the method that we’ve got, and on this day it was England who triumphed. The smallest of margins.
