You wanna give your Custom title to them do it no one cares but don't say they were the deserving one. That final match finished as a tie even in Super Over.
Earlier in 2017, the wrestling superstar kept his promise and gifted a special WWE Championship Belt to Mumbai Indians for winning the 10th season of the IPL.
Triple H had taken to Twitter and announced that he would send a customised championship belt for the Mumbai Indians team.

Meanwhile, England and New Zealand played out what has been called the greatest World Cup final ever at Lord's on Sunday. England batted second and tied New Zealand's score of 241 in their 50 overs. The Super Over that came after also ended in a tie and England were declared winners on the basis of their superior tally of boundaries scored in the match.
