In what can only be described as one of the most exciting and dramatic cricket world cup finals England was determined the final winner.
After 50 overs the score was tied forcing the game to go into a Super Over. But, not even a super over could separate the teams as they both ended on 15. Before the super over started it was declared that if there was no result the final decision would be made on who hit the most boundaries. This default method saw the hosts crowned the champions as England smashed 24 boundaries compared to New Zealand who managed 16.
