It was a super thrilling game as that match had a tie result. While New Zealand managed to score 241/8 (50 overs), England also replied with 241 runs (50 overs).
In the first-ever ODI Super Over, England scored 15/0 while New Zealand replied with 15/1. As the Super Over also had the tie result, England finally won that match due to managing to hit higher boundaries.
It was England’s fourth CWC final as they had played the CWC finals earlier in 1979, 1987 and 1992 editions. However, they had suffered defeats in all the previous three CWC finals. Finally, one of the oldest international cricket teams earned their maiden CWC title last Sunday.
