'The greatest game of all time' : Celebrations continue for England's World Cup triumph

The celebrations continued after a dramatic and tantalisingly close final saw England crowned cricket World Cup champions. Speaking a day after the final Joe Root said ‘I don’t think you can top what happened yesterday, it’s the greatest game of all time’. Captain Eoin Morgan and the rest of the team paraded the trophy on the Lord’s pitch, as well as signed autographs for adoring fans. This is the first time England have ever been crowned victors of the cricket World cup.

    Both teams have equal score. Both team must be awarded as winner. People's winner is New Zealand. The kiwi are real gentlemen. It's rule, who decides the winner…. Error in rule…error in judgement. There should be one more Super Over. Plz change the rule of cricket….. Any way congratulations to English team & New Zealand team.

    Legends say India lost to England intentionally to throw Pakistan out of semis and give England a ticket to the semis.

    Disgusting Umpiring!!! England was not the Champions but New Zealand team are the Champions for sure. Looters just found a way to sneak out with the trophy.

    How perfectly styled is Liam Plunkett's hair? Never mind an interview with England's head coach – how about an interview with England's head hairstylist??!!

    Whole England people it is shame for you to celebrate as winning team. as you know both counter matches were tied up. how you recognize only England is champions. Don't you think both team champions and trophy should share both countries ??

    if you see the real statistics England were all out in initial match and NZ only 8 wickets lost. This is ICC offed as gift to the england by way of making stupid policies. THIS TROPHY SHOULD BE SHARED AND BOTH TEAMS ARE CHAMPIONS IN 2019.
