England won the world cup after the game being tied twice. It is a record by itself. New Zealand ought brilliantly ball to ball but due to the ICC rules after twice the game got tied, England won because of a silly rule which awards the win to the team who scored the maximum number of boundaries.Kane Williamson and his team fought tooth and nail till the very last ball of the innings. The final being tied is first time in world history. The super over from England earned them the trophy and they got crowned as the Champions in one day cricket. After losing in there finals , first to the mighty Windies, then in 1987 reliance cup to border’s team and then again Imran and Wasim conquered in 1992. The cup was always playing hide and seek with the English team! It took them 44 years but never mind the heart breaks in three previous finals, today they are the champions in the 50 overs game. They will go from strength to strength from here.Morgan’s boys are true and valiant fighters.
Ben stokes made history. He has proved he is better all-rounder than the great Ian Botham England has ever produced. Always he conquers with the bat and ball for his team. He also has a brilliant record with the superb catch in one of the league matches. Botham had failed in 1992.
England required 15 runs from thee last over of the 50 overs match. Been stokes hit a six and got a benefit in terms of a throw from the deep which hit his bat, the next thing we saw was the ball ran away to the requirement was of getting two runs, World he boundary as Stokes dived to the ground.The English team earned a boundary with lady luck!
The requirement was of two runs from the last ball and they ran as fast as they could, But Mark wood got run out and the match was a tie. However Stokes’ scores on the board was showing 84 not out from 98 deliveries. If not for Stokes’brilliant innings, kiwis would have romped home with the trophy. Then he joined Jos Buttler for the super over. Rest is history! This is the first ever super over in a World cup final!
Earlier Henry Nicholls did well in the Kiwi’s innings with the hard toiled half century, he survives an appeal with review and was proved right. He was not out. Umpire Dharmasena is a worst umpire. Surprising that he was hired for the Finals. His eye sight need to be examined as he has given many wrong decisions and most of them have been over thrown by the review results in other matches.Tom Latham contributed with a solid knock of 47 and as the NZ team were left right and center by Liam Plunkett as and when Kiwis tried to be up on the game. Plunkett returned with 3/42 from hi 10 overs and was the cream among the bowlers! Ho ever, Archer with 1/42 and Woakes with 3/37 supported him well in restricting the Kiwis. The toss was won By Kane and most of them though that there could be 300 odd runs on the board. But, the English quickies fought back and restricted the kiwis with a total of 241 for 8 wickets. The score was 179/5 in 40 overs and NZ required runs from someone. Tom Latham came to the rescue and clobbered 47 runs by staying till the penultimate over.He was dismissed by Woakes . However Kiwis managed to get 62 runs in the final 10 overs. With 50 overs game and then the super overs meant it was a feast for the cricket lovers eyes. However many were disappointed ass the real champions should have been The New Zealanders. They were the true champions!! But, lady luck showered her blessings on the English team!
