England win Cricket World Cup after sensational victory over New Zealand
In the super over, batting first, England scored 16 runs. New Zealand responded with 16 runs as well and in a nail-biting conclusion the winner was decided on the basis of boundary count (England: 24, New Zealand: 16).
After opting to bat, New Zealand set a target of 242 for the host. Coming out for the chase, England lost early wickets and it was Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler’s partnership which took their team closer.
But with the wicket of Buttler (59 off 60 balls), New Zealand saw an opening and it was Stokes’ unbeaten 84 off 98 balls playing along with the tailenders what managed to tie the match and take it to the super over.
