Fans and players react to the momentous Cricket World Cup final

‘I’ve hugged and kissed people I have never met before today,’ one jubilant fan says after the dramatic World Cup final in which England tied with New Zealand in the regular game and the super over, winning only through virtue of having more boundaries. ‘You know I thought we were dead and buried,’ England’s opening bowler Chris Woakes says. ‘We tied somehow and a super over in a final, a World Cup final, it’s incredible.’ New Zealand fans agree it was an incredible game but not all are satisfied with the outcome. ‘I don’t want to be bitter,’ said one. ‘It seems like sharing the trophy would be the right result’.

    This match won by New zealand and England should acknowledge it as due to umpire wrong decision in favour of England when stokes bat hit by ball during throw lead to boundary.
