In a sensational World Cup final that entered into super over, England beat New Zealand at Lord’s ground. The attrition match was just how the game panned out. New Zealand chose to bat and a fifty from Henry Nicholls and an aggressive knock from Tom Latham helped New Zealand reach 241/8. In the end, Stokes, born in New Zealand, proved to be the ultimate destiny-maker for England as they won the title for the first time. After 44 years of pain, they have finally done it. However, it took every inch of drama to get there. At the end of the day, New Zealand and England were both winners and they made cricket a greater game.
