Stokes is also likely to receive knighthood after showcasing a match-winning performance in the final as both candidates for next UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt expressed their desire to give the player 'knighthood'.

New Zealand became the runners-ups for a second successive time. The Kiwis under the leadership of Brendon McCullum lost the final of the 2015 edition to Australia by seven wickets. Boult said that the two finals were completely different and added that they were outplayed during the 2015 World Cup.

The former England skipper Strauss said that 2015 World Cup debacle led him to see Morgan as the skipper. Strauss added that Morgan has never been afraid to do the things in his own way.

England scripted history on Sunday as it claimed its first-ever World Cup title. The final will be remembered for ages as it did not have a winner after the 50-over and super over action, both of which were tied. In the end, England were announced as the winner as they had hit more boundaries, 26, as compared to New Zealand's 17 boundaries in the match.

The team was selected by former international players and commentators Ian Bishop, Ian Smith and Isa Guha, along with cricket writer Lawrence Booth, while ICC General Manager Cricket, Geoff Allardice, was the fifth member and convener of the committee.

I never thought I would have to answer this. It's pretty hard to swallow when two teams have worked really hard to reach this point.

It is something you don't consider when you go out to play.

In the super over, England scored 15 runs and they were able to restrict New Zealand to 15 runs, and they won the match as they had scored more boundaries in the match.

England have made it to their fourth World Cup final whereas New Zealand have reached the final for the second time. The three lions last made it to the final in 1992 whereas the Kiwis reached the final in the 2015 World Cup as well.
