In the last ball thriller, England defeated New Zealand by boundary count to win the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 championship. This is England’s first World Cup title, after being runners-up three times previously.

The match went to the Super Over as both teams ended up in a tie, scoring 241 runs each in their quota of 50 overs. The Super Over too resulted in a tie with England and New Zealand getting 15 runs each.

As per ICC’s rule book, if Super Over ends in a tie, the team with the maximum number of boundaries in the match is declared the winner. New Zealand with 16 boundaries fell short of England’s 24 boundaries.

Ben Stokes was awarded ‘Player of the Match’ for his unbeaten innings of 84 runs. New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson was named the ‘Player of the Series’.
