England were crowned world champions for the 1st time in men's cricket history after they beat New Zealand in the thrilling World Cup 2019 final at the Lord's Cricket Ground on Sunday.
Scorecards, somtimes, don't tell you the entire story, the say. It's entirely true for the World Cup 2019 finals as New Zealand realised that cricket is a game of fine margins in the hardest way possible. New Zealand posted 241/8 in 50 overs. England finished with exactly the same total but were all-out in their quota of 50 overs.
The World Cup 2019 final was tied but a Super Over was played to decide the champions. In a freaky outcome, even the Super Over was tied with both teams managing 15 runs in 6 balls each. However, England were crowned world champions as they had hit more boundaries during the match -- 17 for New Zealand and 26 for the hosts.
