177-4 . Need 65 from 48 runs.
Oh damn. Buttler the dangerman out. 5 overs left 45 runs left to get.
Required run rate is at 9.8 rpo which is doable at this stage. Butler's wicket makes it very difficult tho.
I genuinely didn't think NZ will be able to make a match out of this. I had England winning this in a canter after the 1st innings.
It's a bit like the India match.
220-7. 9 balls left, 6 of which will be from Boult. Looking very difficult now.
A wicket and then a six and then another wicket! My goodness, this is so awesome!
15 required off the last over. Boult vs Stokes will be one for the ages. This is so exciting!
Back to back dot balls! Pressure on Stokes to hit a big one. He has to go for the jugular.
Edit: Just as I write that Stokes hits a maximum! This is unreal stuff. And another one! Dafuq!
It's going to a super over! A tie after all that.
Totally crazy. 1 misfield and one bit of bad luck that both resulted in 6 runs.
Wow, what an amazing finale. It's still not over yet, unbelievable. Next up, Super over ?
Where's Greenlite ?
Have to say, luck also played in favor of England here.
15 off England's super over.
Damn, NZ need 16 from one over.
Jofra Archer will be the England bowler.
Yeah. Lucky we got more boundaries over the innings. That extra one run might be important.
Guptill and Neesham will be the batsmen for NZ.
Wide in the first ball.
2 from 1 ball.
NZ need 2 runs off the last ball. Guptill facing.
What a crazy end to this tournament.
England have done it!! NZ get 1 and then get run out on the second. About as dramatic as it gets. I really feel for NZ after all that happened today.
They say cricket is boring lol.
Great match. And both sides played very well. Congrats to England, they did play well throughout this tournament.
I do feel bad for NZ though, they lost this match even after coming so close to winning it.
