• New Zealand won the first of the two teams who fought for the first World Cup. The victory ensued until the final ball in a thrilling match. Stokes (84), who is rooted in the crease for the wickets, won the team. This is the first time in the history of England cricket. England were bowled out for 242 in their allotted 242-run win over England by 10 wickets.

    For the first time in the history of the World Cup, the winner of the match was decided by the Super Over. The NewZealand fumbled as England batted and scored 15 runs. The result was England's first ever World Cup win. England batsmen fight on Newzealand bowlers. Openers Jason Roy (17), Johnny Bairstow (36), Joey Root (7), Eoin Morgan (9), Ben Stokes (84), Jos Buttler (59), Chris Woakes (2), Plunkett (10), Joffra Archer (0), Adil Rasheed (0) and Mark Wood (0) made 241 runs.

    New Zealand won the toss and batted first. The New Zealand batting line-up, which saw India win in the last match, continued to perform.

    Williamson was disappointed with this decision as opener Henry Nichols (55; 77 fours) was the highest scorer. Chris Woakes and Liam Flankett Chero took 3 wickets while Joffra Archer and Mark Wood picked up 1 wicket each.

    Another opener, Martin Gaftiel (19) was the first wicket-taker to bowl Chris Vox for 29 in 6.2 overs. Captain Williamson (30), disappointed with the team's hopes, put Butler in the bowl of the Flunkett bowler for 103.

    The rest of the batsmen, with Ross Taylor (15), Tom Latham (47), James Neesham (19), Grand Home (16), Mitchell Sander (5), Henry (4) and Boult (1), adjusted for the runs.
