Jofra Archer had nerves as England beat New Zealand on the boundary after a super over to win the World Cup for the first time in a nerve-wracking final,

When Sri Lanka Won Their First World Cup

In one of cricket’s most remarkable matches of all time, Ben Stokes scored a sensational 84 not out to save England from 86-4 to see them level at New Zealand’s 241-8 despite claiming 15 from the last four of their regulation 50 overs.

The all-rounder and Jos Buttler then managed 15 runs from Trent Boult’s Super Over and despite Jimmy Neesham smashing Archer for six off the second ball of the England bowler’s over, the Kiwis could only get one of the two runs they required from last ball.

It meant they drew level with the hosts’ total and lost because they hit fewer boundaries in the match – 17 to England’s 26.

Pressure. Even with the immense talent, skill and strength present in the ranks of both finalists at Sunday’s Lord’s, the deciding factor was always who could handle the pressure best,

England Win World Cup After Super Over: How Cricket Reacted To Lord’s Final Stunner

England and Ben Stokes completed a dramatic four-year run in style with a thrilling World Cup win at Lords,

England captain Eoin Morgan: “I still can’t believe it, it was an amazing day. Absolutely phenomenal. There was very little between the teams, we were very lucky to get over the line and I’m very lucky to hold this [trophy ] – and extremely proud. It’s been a four-year journey, we’ve developed a lot in those four years, especially in the last two. Sport is sometimes difficult, but to cross the line today means the world to us.”

England all-rounder Ben Stokes: “When things like this happen, it’s almost written in the stars. You live for moments like this as a professional cricketer. I don’t think there will be a better game in the history of cricket. We’re world champions and it’s an amazing feeling. I’m just done to be honest!”

England wicketkeeper Jos Buttler: “I can’t believe what’s happened. I don’t think anything will bother me anymore. I don’t think I’ll ever care about anything again. I don’t really care what happens in my career now . We laughed at the fact that four years of work came down to one ball. It justifies everything we’ve done for four years to get to this point. It’s an incredible journey.”

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson: “Both teams have worked really hard to get to this moment so when two tries to separate them with a winner and a loser still didn’t shine, it is what it is. The rules are there at the start. I guess nobody thought we’d have to resort to it. But it was a great game of cricket. It’s your choice to laugh or cry, isn’t it? It’s not anger for us, it’s a big disappointment, I think. The guys are really feeling it.”

Former England Director of Cricket, Andrew Strauss: “I’m so proud of the team. They were brave enough to try something different, something we’ve never done before, and it worked. It’s one thing to try to play a different style, but then you have to hold on when you have bad days, when the press gets on your case and when people start doubting you. In four years, everybody did.”

Sky Sports’ Nasser Hussain: “After seven weeks of cricket, the trophy fell to one batsman, Martin Guptill, who tried to dive into his crease to secure the single run that would have won New Zealand the World Cup. If that had happened happen in any match you would think “this is amazing”. For this to happen in a home World Cup final in cricket’s home country is truly remarkable. I doubt we will ever see anything like it again. It was exactly what the game of cricket needs in this country.”

Sky Sports’ Shane Warne: “I believe England were the best team in this tournament but I think New Zealand were the best team in the final. The important green went to England. They got a score and defended that score to equalize – no penalty Ben Stokes batting for four would have won it. I’m happy for England but they still haven’t really beaten New Zealand. It was a tie in the Super Over.” England are the reigning men’s ODI Cricket World Cup champions, while Australia hold the women’s title.

With all-rounder Sam Curran taking a paltry 3-12, Pakistan collapsed in the final overs to finish at 137 for eight after England captain Jos Buttler sent him into bat.
