The World Cup final has had it all. There have been loads of drama in the last 30 minutes or so and it came down to a super over to decide who the winner was going to be. England snuck it at the death and it shouldn't have gone that far, but it did. New Zealand had the chances to put England out ,but it was 2 crucial moments that changed where the trophy was heading.
This morning New Zealand posted 241 in their 50 overs and England replied with 241 so the game was tied and hence the one over showdown for each side to see who was going to be crowned World Cup Champions.
England were fortunate to get this far though as Stokes was caught earlier, but Trent Boult stood on the boundary to signal a six. The next ball he ran and dived and the ball deflected off his bat for another 4 runs. It wasn't intentional so the runs were allowed. They managed to squeak to the line in the end and it made for a tense finish.
One thing anyone who was watching this can't say it was boring like some of the finals we have seen before. You couldn't write a better script for the final and has to be the most exciting one ever played so far. It is a shame that someone is going to come away with nothing.
England scored 15 off their 6 balls and it came down to 2 runs off 1 ball for New Zealand to win it and Guptill was run out off the last ball by a good meter or so. England rode their luck and it was just meant to be. Sometimes you just have to put your hands up as the rub of the green didn't go your way. In the end England won the trophy by 1 run.
