Cricket: England Win Dramatic World Cup Final

England won the men's World Cup for the first time as they beat New Zealand following a dramatic sudden-death super over in one of the most thrilling matches in cricket history.

Both sides scored 241 from their 50 overs, meaning they each had to bat again for six balls each.

England set New Zealand 16 to win, but with two needed from their final ball, Black Caps batsman Martin Guptill scored one before being run out.

That meant the super over scores were tied, and England won on virtue of having scored more boundaries in the match.
