In a nail-biting match, team England finally registered its first cricket world cup after winning the finals at the Lord's Stadium against New Zealand. In the most dramatic of circumstances, the final could not be decided in the 100 overs and the game crashed into the brutal facade of a Super Over. However, with a neck - to - neck competition between the two teams, England emerged victoriously.

Eoin Morgan's side had finished on 241 all out in pursuit of New Zealand's 241-8 aided by an “accidental six” hit by Ben Stokes and the final came down to the super over – a six-ball shootout for each team.

England batted first in the super over and Stokes and Jos Buttler scored 15 off Trent Boult. Jofra Archer bowled England's over against Martin Guptill and Jimmy Neesham, who smashed a six off the second ball.

The scores tied again, England players went into wild celebrations while the New Zealanders slumped where they stood, shock writ large on their faces. Both sides had finished on 15 runs in the super over, but England won due to the tie-break rule that the side that hit more boundaries in their innings would be declared the victor. As it were, the host nation scored 24 boundaries compared to 17 by the Black Caps.

Soon after, a number of celebrities took to Twitter to congratulate the winning team.

While Karan Johar believes that England had a better 'kundli' he says New Zealand had a better game.

However, Suvreen Chawla and Anurag Kashyap feel that the team of New Zealand is the real winner.
