The match went to a super over after scores were tied at the end of England’s chase of 242. England scored 15 off their six balls but New Zealand did well to match them shot for shot by ending up with 15 runs of their own. However, England were declared winners as they had scored more boundaries (in the match including the super over). While New Zealand scored 17 boundaries in total, England were far more superior in the department, having blazed 26 fours and sixes. In an emotional and electric atmosphere at Lord’s, both sides scored 241 in their 50 overs and were level on 15 when they batted for an extra over apiece. It meant England were crowned world champions by virtue of having scored more boundary fours and sixes – 26 to New Zealand’s 17 – in the entire match. That it even got to that stage was astonishing in itself and came as a result of a barely believable conclusion at the home of cricket – the first tie in a World Cup final.
