By Saheed Ibrahim

England beat New Zealand by a tie breaker to win the Cricket World Cup for the first time.

After the final was tied after regulation play,it went into the World Cup’s first-ever super over in its 44-year history as a rule explained was required on the big screens

England were eventually crowned World Champions by virtue of having scored more boundary fours and sixes in the entire match.
