England beat New Zealand to win first World Cup in Lord's epic

England have won their first ever World Cup, overcoming New Zealand at Lord’s in extraordinary fashion. The game went to a Super Over after the game was tied, but not even that could separate the teams. Eoin Morgan’s men won via the with the “boundaries struck” tie-break after two innings and the Super Over failed to settle the epic encounter.

    What a embarrassing win it is . Is not really a win what the hell they are celebrating for . It’s a tie . They win just cuz of that stupid rule . The World Cup is a 50 50 between both the teams . That’s unfair for the kiwis .

    Father : What happened to your results?

    Son: I have been NEWZEALANDED.

    Father: What?!!!! What do you mean?

    Son : Dad, Myself and another boy both scored exactly same marks. But, he was given 1st Rank, while I got 2nd.

    Father: This is ridiculous. If marks are equal, then both should have been declared Joint 1st Rank Holders na? By the way, how come he got 1st Rank? On what basis?

    Son : I checked that too. Principal said it was decided based on how many additional sheets were taken by us while writing the exams. He had taken more than me. So…..

    Father: 🤔😮😲😠😡
