Eng vs NZ World Cup Final Highlights: England won the cricket world cup in the most dramatic fashion possible. Both teams were tied in the super over as well but England won the match as they scored more boundaries in the match. The match went down to the super over making it the first-ever instance in a 50 over world cup final. Buttler and Stokes batted in the super over and helped them reach 15 runs against Trent Boult.
Joss Buttler and Ben Stokes fought back against the New Zealand bowlers to keep themselves relevant in the match. New Zealand bowlers were very good with the new ball and maintained pressure in the middle stages of the match as well. It was a match worthy of a world cup final as both sides competed like champions throughout the match.
Earlier, Liam Plunkett was phenomenal for the English side as he gave them breakthroughs at crucial moments in the match. Plunkett took three important wickets to rattle the middle order of the Kiwis. After losing Guptill early, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson and Henry Nicholls batted really well for the first wicket. But that was the only big partnership that the Kiwis had.
Heartbreak for Kane Williamson and his side as they played like champions and were brilliant throughout the match and the tournament.
