LORDS: On 14 July 2019, a tense chase, a tie, and a Super Over in a World Cup final marked England the ICC Cricket World Cup winners for the first time.
Two needed off the last ball in a super over, Martin Guptill ran for his life, but inches before he could cross the line, Buttler took off the bails, triggering exhilaration. Guptill was on the ground.
Players were running across the Lord’s cricket ground, history was made, the crowd at Lord’s erupted to celebrate the first-ever World cup win of England.
The end was nothing but dramatic, England being declared the winner of the 2019 World Cup on the basis of a boundary count after everything else failed to separate the two teams.
