England wins the Cricket World Cup in most dramatic manner
England are the new World Champion
London: England defeated New Zealand in a photo finish match at Lords, the home of Cricket here, to lift the ICC Cricket World Cup for the first time.
England batting second was chasing a target of 242 for victory but they ended up tied at 241 due to a dramatic runout on the last ball.
This led to each side facing the superover for the final outcome. England brought Ben Stokes at the crease to face the superover and with two boundaries, New Zealand was left facing a target of 16 to win the match. After Archer began his over with a wide, he was greeted with a six and a boundary but when only two runs were required by the kiwis to win, their game ended with run-out on the last ball.
