In the end it came down to the finest of margins for England as Eoin Morgan's side lifted the World Cup due to a superior boundary count at Lord's on Sunday.

New Zealand and England were level on 241 runs after 50 overs apiece which forced a super-over - six balls with the highest scoring team emerging as the victor. 

Morgan's men posted 15 runs in the super over and as New Zealand had 14 with one final ball remaining, they had to push for two runs as a draw would have seen the final separated by a boundary count - a statistic which favoured England.

Jofra Archer was England's allocated bowler for the super over and www.sw-index.com with fielders in position, both sides were aware that New Zealand could not afford to finish level at the end of the super over to win. 

Martin Guptill and James Neesham were at the crease for New Zealand and Guptill was stumped after Jason Roy collected from the field swiftly before launching the ball towards Jos Buttler.
