Hosts England won a thrilling 2019 Cricket World Cup final Sunday, beating New Zealand after the match went to a dramatic super over following a tie at Lord's:
New Zealand went into bat after winning the toss and produced a competitive total of 241 for eight from their 50 overs.
The Kiwis then produced a brilliant bowling display to move to the brink of victory. Lockie Ferguson was the key for the Black Caps with three wickets and a superb catch to dismiss captain Eoin Morgan.
However, England hit back through a late surge from Ben Stokes. He managed 84 not out from 98 balls to drive the hosts to 241 and send the final into a super over.
Stoke and Jos Buttler then came back out to hit 15 in their super over which New Zealand matched but could not beat to give England their first World Cup win.
Chris Woakes gave England an early breakthrough by removing opener Martin Guptill for lbw after a review:
Henry Nicholls was the only batsman to pass 50 for the Black Caps. The 27-year-old reached his ninth ODI half-century from just 71 balls.
Liam Plunkett removed Nicholls for 55 and also took the wickets of captain Kane Williamson and James Neesham in an impressive display:
Williamson had made 30 to set a World Cup record:
New Zealand needed Tom Latham to come up with a gutsy 47 from 56 to take the Black Caps past the 200-mark.
The 27-year-old fell to Woakes, who joined Plunkett on three wickets for the day, while Mark Wood chipped in with the wicket of Ross Taylor, and Jofra Archer bowled tailender Matt Henry for four.
New Zealand left England with an intriguing chase of 242, but the hosts suffered an early scare when opener Jason Roy survived a review for lbw on the first ball of their innings:
Roy did not last too much longer. The England opener got a nick on a Henry delivery which went through to Latham and was well held down low by the wicketkeeper.
Another big wicket followed when Joe Root went for just seven runs, leaving England at 59 for one.
Their hopes seemed to dip again when opener Jonny Bairstow followed swiftly afterwards to leave the match finely balanced:
There was more drama to follow when captain Morgan was brilliantly caught by a diving Ferguson to leave England reeling.
Stokes and Buttler then combined for 110 to give England hope of completing the run chase. Buttler went for 59 after another diving catch, this time from substitute Tim Southee.
His dismissal left England needing 46 off 31 balls for victory, and it was left to Stokes to come up with the heroics in an extraordinary finish to the game.
England's final over saw the 28-year-old smash a six over midwicket and then follow it up with another in astonishing style:
The hosts were left needing three runs from the final two balls to clinch victory but could only manage two to see the game end in a tie and force the super over.
England sent Stokes and Buttler back out, and they combined to produce 15 from their six balls.
Neesham hit Archer for six, but New Zealand were left needing two runs off the final ball to win the World Cup. Guptill managed one but was then run out by Buttler as England claimed an incredible victory.
