Kathmandu ,14 july :
ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup final, Lord’s
New Zealand 241-8 (50 overs): Nicholls 55, Woakes 3-37, Plunkett 3-42
England 241 all out (50 overs): Stokes 84, Buttler 59, Neesham 3-43, Ferguson 3-50
England win after super over
England won the men’s World Cup for the first time as they beat New Zealand following a dramatic sudden-death super over in one of the most thrilling matches in cricket history.
Both sides scored 241 from their 50 overs, meaning they had to bat again for six balls each.
England scored 16 in their super over. With two runs needed from their final ball to win, New Zealand batsman Martin Guptill scored one before being run out.
That meant the super over scores were tied, and England won on virtue of having scored more boundaries in the match.
