England beat New Zealand in sensational ICC World Cup Final

What a day it was at London today where two finals were being played: The ICC World Cup 2019 Cricket between England and New Zealand, and the Center Court of the Wimbledon where the men's single final between two tennis giants was paled between second seeded Roger Federer and defending champion Novak Djokoivc. 

I was divided between the two finals but the last overs of the ICC World Cup Cricket final glued me to the cricket. And boy o boy what a closely contested finish it was for the New Zealand. In the last over, despite the bonus six runs (2+4) England could not take the last run to win the match.

The super over was equally exciting and thrilling. England scored 16 runs in six balls. And when it came to New Zealand, the same run out saga was repeated and the Kiwis just got unlucky to lose to the Englishmen.

So it is England who lifts its maiden ICC World Cup Trophy and the match brings an end to a memorable World Cup 2019.
