England Played Fair and Won

It could be luck, it could be skill, but the Brits won fair and square.

Opportunity only knocks once; grab it. And the England Cricket Team certainly did just that. They defied all the odds, pulled out all the stops necessary to win, and made sure that if they won, they won fair and square. Everything that happened was luckily in their favor - from Ben Stokes scoring a six when needed most to the inadvertent overthrow. This year’s finals at Lord’s was more than what anyone could have expected. The loss definitely weighed on New Zealand as they couldn’t believe the outcome. Nonetheless, a winner had to be chosen, and it was England’s turn to lift the trophy.

The 2019 Cricket World Cup will go down in history as one of the most thrilling, exciting, and nerve-wracking match ever played in a cricket final. The game went down to the wire, almost literally. After the 100 overs, the match was tied at 241 which meant a Super Over was needed to decide the winner. However, it also resulted in a tie with 15 runs apiece. Since England scored more boundaries over the course of the match, they were named as cricket world cup champions.

Many were saying that, after the match, New Zealand may have lost but #CricketWon. However, it was England who truly won. It wasn’t the ICC’s fault for implementing a boundary rule because they relayed to every participating team the rules - meaning that New Zealand understood and accepted them. New Zealand, for what it’s worth, also had a stroke of luck - their match against India had been washed out which could have ended with India winning; they made the semi-final simply because of their Net Run-rate.

New Zealand may have lost to the England cricket team by 'the bearest of margins,' but they are looking forward to future Tests, T20s, and ODIs. To find out more about the different cricket formats, visit Betwala's page.
