Ben Stokes stars in dramatic victory over New Zealand

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. In an emotional and electric atmosphere at Lord’s, both sides scored 241 in their 50 overs and were level on 15 when they batted for an extra over a piece. It meant England were crowned world champions by virtue of having scored more boundary fours and sixes 26 to New Zealand’s 17 in the entire match. That it even got to that stage was astonishing in itself and came as a result of a barely believable conclusion at the home of cricket the first tie in a World Cup final.
