England win maiden World Cup title after Super Over drama

The scores were tied at the end of 50 overs, forcing the super over.

Let me tell you a little about what you missed... and I don't mean by giving you a sports report.

Winning the World Cup will live with these England players forever. To win the World Cup final off the last ball of a Super Over is the stuff of fairytales.

Ferguson came running in to take a screamer of a catch, diving forward just to get his hand's under the ball, sending Morgan back to the sheds with just nine to his name and putting England in real trouble at 86/4.

England have won a dramatic ICC Cricket World Cup final after beating New Zealand in a super over.

Boult and the Black Caps went up for an appeal for LBW, but umpire Marais Erasmus gave Roy not out.

However, after India were knocked out of the tournament in the semifinals, the fans face a choice between watching the final between host England and New Zealand or skipping the match and selling their tickets. There were so many small parts in that match that could have gone either way as we saw throughout the whole game, but congratulations to England, they have a fantastic game plan and they deserve the victory.

"In 1990, I was lucky enough to be on the ground staff at Lord's here and you had different duties when you turned up", he said.

The World Cup 2019 finals will take place between England and New Zealand.

However, even the end of the regular match was shrouded in drama as Stokes hit 84 not out and both teams finished on 241. But their cricketing rivalry - the sport is the most popular in both countries, spectacularly so in India - was played out with passionate grace in the early stages of the tournament, no matter how great the sporting stakes.

Jofra Archer looked a bit shell shocked as he began bowling out the final six deliveries of the tournament, but eventually New Zealand pushed too hard and ended up agonisingly short - not for the first time.

England bowler Jofra Archer: "I was pretty sure I was going to bowl it [the super over], my heart is still racing!"

And as England battled New Zealand in the World Cup final at Lord's on Sunday, the TMS team received a cake from a suitably high profile listener. Which in this case translates as: What a joy to behold.
