India had won the 2011 World Cup at the Wankhede Stadium while Australia lifted the Cup at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2015.

England beat New Zealand to win the men’s World Cup for the first time after one of the most amazing games of cricket ever played was tied twice.

England is the world champion after tying with New Zealand on 241 each after their respective 50 overs. Both the teams played well but England was able to edge out the accomplished New Zealanders. Both scored 15 in the super-over shootout – but England won thanks to hitting more boundaries in their 50 overs.

It is England’s first-ever Cricket World Cup and follows final defeats in 1979, 1987 and 1992. Ben Stokes was England’s hero with the bat. He bludgeoned 15 from the final over of the regular innings, including a bizarre six by way of four overthrows. He was made Man of the Match.

England’s captain Eoin Morgan said: “It’s been an absolutely incredible journey … I still can’t quite believe it.”
