England captain Eoin Morgan has said the 2019 World Cup final was the most dramatic cricket match he has ever attended. Two years ago, on this day, England became the first ODI world champion. England defeated New Zealand based on the boundary count rule after equalizing the scores in limited overs and super overs.
On the second anniversary of the victory, Morgan said, “Final is the most dramatic match in cricket and the best match ever played in cricket.” In a video posted by his IPL franchise, the Kolkata Knight Riders captain said: ‘The match was so close, the match was tight until the end, perhaps as close as it could have been. This has given the game a lot of benefit as we have never seen before.

In this match, New Zealand scored 241 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in their allotted 50 overs, thanks to Henry Nichols’ 55 and Tom Latham’s 47. The top four batsmen collapsed while England were in the pavilion for 96 runs, chasing a target. But all-rounder Ben Stokes, along with wicketkeeper Jose Butler, brought England back into the game. After the dismissal of Butler, Stokes received no support from the other end.
He played 84 innings. Immediately after Mark Wood’s run out on the last ball, the first final of World Cup history went to a super over. The excitement of cricket was at its peak and in Super Over, both teams scored just 15 runs. England, who hit the most boundaries, became the winner. Ben Stokes received ‘Man of the Match’ for his amazing performance.
