Hosts England and 2015 finalists New Zealand featured in the most thrilling World Cup finalin the tournament’s 44-year history at the iconic Lord’s on Sunday. The match ended in a tie after 100 overs as both teams scored 241 runs and even the Super Over succeeding it concluded as a tie with both sides making 15 runs. However, it was Eoin Morgan who lifted the trophy as his team had hit more number of boundaries.
The home team skipper, Eoin Morgan, was asked at the post-match conference whether the “luck of an Irishman” got England over the line. The captain smiled and said: “We had Allah with us as well”.
“I spoke to Adil (Rashid). He said Allah is definitely with us. It’s the rub of the green. It’s also reflective of our team; we’re a diverse side and we brought that together today,” Morgan, who is the first captain to lead England in two World Cups, said.
