What a game - England came back from the dead! And the super over beats the penalty shoot out hands down for drama.

 

Superb sportsmanship from the Kiwis to immediately signal a six when Stokes was "caught" on the boundary.

 

Me and the missus celebrating with a bottle of fizz and we'll pretend the Bastille Day fireworks later this evening are celebrating an England win.

 

Best game of cricket since Yorkshire stuffed the Aussies by an innings at Bramall Lane in 1968.

Not really into cricket, only watched the last hour or so; but wow, that was a bit gripping!

 

Loved it.

What an amazing game of cricket, and thanks to Sky Sports, shown on terrestrial TV for us to see. Simply brilliant cricket from both teams, neither of whom deserved to lose.

What a team. Four Yorkshiremen, four foreigners and oh yes, three Englishmen.

Incredible game, absolutely incredible. Got to feel sorry for the kiwis but, finally, well done England.

😃 Great game and very tense with the extra over- never knew that was something in the game rules.

Both boards would have known, both management teams and captains should have known. There’s a few salty comments coming from ex-players and that’s a shame. If the result was reversed Kane Williamson, total gent that he is, wouldn’t have shared the trophy because the rules didn’t say that’s what he had to do, NZ would have won and we’d have been gutted. Oddly, if there had been rain for two days it would have been shared. England won fair and square, stokes didn’t angle his bat to get the overthrows, jofra archer didn’t underarm the last ball of the super over, it was won by some crisp fielding and glovework - under immense pressure - on that last ball.

 

But having said all that, it needs to be a handled better in the future. Maybe another super over would be better than a technicality. Oh, and a better pitch, that was a bit of pudding!

Indeed, well done England. They’ve been the best side in the world for a couple of years. 

 

Have the Aussies stopped whining yet😀
