The 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup Final between England and New Zealand will be remembered as one of, if not the best Cricket World Cup Final of all time. The tension, high-adrenaline pace and last-ditch drama made even the most apathetic sports fan fall in love with the game of cricket. The final saw England, the inventors of cricket, lift the iconic trophy, beating New Zealand, a team they often fall short against. England, coached by Eoin Morgan won the match for hitting more boundaries, despite the match and subsequent super-over ending in a tie. The script was like something from a Hollywood blockbuster, with nail-biting drama until the last.
Winning the toss, New Zealand elected to bat first. England restricted them to 241 to 8 in 50 overs, with Henry Nicholls hitting a top score of 55. England went on to lose 4 early wickets, however, a fine Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler partnership ensured England remained in with a shot. 4 overs, 39 runs to win, 3 overs, 34 to win, 2 overs 24 to win. Neesham went on to remove Plunkett and nearly had a wicket next ball if Trent Boult hadn't overstepped the boundary rope. Jimmy Neesham went on to dispatch Archer with the over's final ball.
With Boult seemingly winning the battle with Ben Stokes, Stokes went on to hit a 6 followed by 6 runs. England went on to achieve 3 runs from 2 balls, followed by 2 run-outs...England had tied the game, sending it to a super-over. England batted first in the super-over, with Stokes and Buttler scoring 15 runs whilst facing Boult. With the inexperienced Archer taking centre stage, he bowled a wide, 2, 2, 6 and a 1. With the final ball, Guptill required two runs to win the game for New Zealand. Whilst attempting to complete his second run, Buttler crashed the ball into the wickets, subsequently winning the match and trophy for England.
