Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali run away as England players start spraying champagne bottles post their maiden World Cup win at Lord’s
The entire Cricketing fraternity had bitten of their nails already before realising that they were in for more breathtaking stuff- a tie even in the Super Over- one, which was more than just a nail-biting contest.
England emerge victorious as they win the final of the 2019 Cricket World Cup at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground by scoring more number of boundaries as opposed to the Kiwis throughout the course of the match.
With 15 required of the final over, England managed to garner 14 to take the match into the Super Over- the first time ever in the history of World Cup. But, the script did not reach its climax until the Super Over too ended with a Draw, with both the teams managing to score 15 runs each.
But, riding on the superior boundary count- 26 for England as opposed to 17 for England throughout the course of the match (including the Super Over), England became the eventual World champions for the first time in the history of the tournament.
But, during the customary champagne celebrations post the title winning ceremony the British Muslim players- Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali refrained from taking part in the celebrations.
Adil and Moeen run for cover
As soon as the English opening batsman Jonny Bairstow popped the cork and started spraying the Champagne burst, both Adil and Moeen- standing side-by-side at the right-hand side corner, ran away after side-stepping hastily.
Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid are Muslims and their faith forbids them from consuming alcohol or even having a contact with it. Later, in the press conference England skipper Eoin Morgan had also addressed the fact that his team is a blend of players coming from different backgrounds, cultures and have grown up in different countries.
