New Zealand vs England Twitter reactions: Twitter hailed both the teams for putting on display a never-seen-before match at Lord’s.
During the final match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between New Zealand and England at Lord’s, England beat New Zealand in a tied super over to register the best final of a World Cup.
Chasing a 242-run target, England all-rounder Ben Stokes ran a single off the last ball of Trent Boult’s over to make sure that England don’t lose the match. In what was the first time that super over has been included into the World Cup, it happening in the final will go down as one of the most memorable World Cup memories.
In the Super Over, England sent Stokes and wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler. Both the English batsmen scored a boundary each in the super over to score 15 runs off Trent Boult’s over.
For New Zealand, all-rounder James Neesham and opening batsman Martin Guptill were sent in to score 16 runs off Jofra Archer’s over. Neesham scoring a gigantic six off Archer on the second ball reduced the equation to New Zealand scoring seven runs in four balls.
On the following two deliveries, Neesham and Guptill ran a couple of runs each to bring down the equation to three runs off two balls. With Guptill on strike, New Zealand needed two runs off one ball in a nerve-wrenching situation.
On the last delivery, Guptill got run-out in an attempt to run a couple of runs as England won on the back of scoring more boundaries in the match.

Neither side deserved to lose. Bad luck more than anything else put New Zealand in that heartbreak situation. But they won the hearts of millions with their stout-hearted performance, especially in the semis and final. The World Cup title can’t be too long in coming
