As the game ended with a tie, both teams played a Super Over, following which, both the teams scored 15 runs. However, New Zealand had one boundary (6 runs) whereas, England scored two boundaries (6X2 runs,) due to which, England became the champion of the ICC series.
This year, the ICC World Cup was hosted by England, which started on the 30th of May and continued until the 14th of July.
Ben Stokes, a player of Team England, was the Man of the Match in yesterday’s match, as he scored 84 runs off 98 balls.
On the other hand, Kane Williamson, a player of the Team New Zealand, was declared as the Player of the Tournament.
With this tremendous win, Team England was crowned the champion of the ICC World Cup 2019.
Don’t understand how the game of such proportions, the #CWC19Final, is finally decided on who scored the most boundaries. A ridiculous rule @ICC. Should have been a tie. I want to congratulate both @BLACKCAPS & @englandcricket on playing out a nail biting Final. Both winners imo.

We tend to overuse the term ‘#SuperSunday‘ in sport.
But this Sunday was something else.
Two matches that will live in our memory for a long time!
