England have won the Cricket World Cup after a super over decider in the final against New Zealand at Lord's.

After a stunning last over where England got 14 runs, the game went to a historic super over.

Stokes and Buttler came on to face Trent Boult in the super over and hit 15 from the six pressure balls.

Jofra Archer bowled England’s over and sealed the win.

The hosts were set a modest 242 target and were saved by Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes’ 105-run fifth wicket partnership saved the match as Stokes powered England to a tie.
