The World Cup 2019 final at Lord's was nothing short of epic as England beat New Zealand to clinch its maiden men's World Cup title. New Zealand matched England's innings total of 241 runs in 50 overs which led to the Super Over.

Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler smashed 15 runs in the deciding over bowled by Trent Boult while Martin Guptill was run out on the final ball of the Super Over looking for the winning run as New Zealand matched England's tally again. Both the tied scores meant England won the title on basis of the boundaries scored in the final, leading to wild celebrations from the players.

Twitter was set ablaze with New Zealand supporters finding it difficult to stomach the bitter defeat while neutrals and England supporters were left stunned after witnessing one of the greatest cricket matches ever.

Former Kiwi all-rounder Scott Styris was far from happy with the 'boundary count' rule.

Jimmy Neesham, whose six off the second ball in the Super Over helped New Zealand tie with England's total, was devastated.


Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen didn't need words to express his joy.

Kane Williamson's reaction on knowing that he is the Man of the Tournament.

Then there were neutrals who were letting the moment sink in.

Few blocks away from the Lord's Cricket Ground, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer battled for nearly five hours for the Wimbledon men's singles final at London's All England Club. People watching two incredible epics unfold were left stunned.

Wimbledon's Twitter handle reached out to its counterpart at ICC, checking on them to see how badly the nerves were rattled at the other end of London.
