Good multi-cultural English team.

Nice to see a proud Dubliner lift the trophy. 😀

Neither team won.  It was a draw and England was awarded the match on a count back because they scored more boundaries.  Seems an odd way to decide a World Cup final match but that was the rule going in so should not come as any surprise to anyone.

How would you decide the winner? Best dressed, best tan, best beard, best looking bird?

England won.

England won.....thats why they lifted the cup.....Its not difficult to grasp....both teams new the format before the match started.....the cup was awarded to the most attacking team.....the team that played the best cricket......That was England.....I dont think anyone would argue that England played the most attacking cricket through out the tournament and have done so for the previous 4 years hammering just about all the opposition in various games.

At the end of long tournaments there needs to be a way to split teams into 1st and 2nd etc......Look at the way football leagues work.....at the end of a 9 month season if the top 2 have the same points etc it comes down to goals scored......the most deserving team always wins.

But England only won because of an umpiring mistake. New Zealand should have won.
