Why a super over and not the number of wickets lost as a decider?

Yeah I agree but super over more exciting.  Feel sorry for New Zealand especially the second 6 in the last over.

Neighbours who probably have never taken any interest in/know nothing about cricket are celebrating, I take it England have won

Not sure why there isnít a second super over either as they both got the same score.

Itís like a football game going to penalties and the shootout ending 11-11 and then saying the winner is the team who had most corners.

Come on Reg, we had the bottle?  I'm sorry you didn't get to say I told you so this time.

Pretty much as expected, England have improved over the last 4 years, but lack the bottle required to win when the going gets tough. 

I suspect that after winning 4 home Ashes series, we're going to have to accept, the coming one is gone already. 

The only hope lies in the Convict quicks breaking down over the next few weeks.

So, at the time of writing we are 100 away from the target of 224 with 17 overs gone, do you still stand behind this?

Made it look so difficult for Australia, is this just a case of them bottling it rather than us having the bottle?

Can I pass judgement now?

What a game. I was so engrossed I only had 3 beers all day. Felt sorry for the kiwis though, they were winning for much of it imo.

I thought Root had blown it for us by using up 5 overs to get 7 runs and that Stokes was trying too many boundary shots and ending up with dot balls instead of taking singles.  He shoved that down my throat.  Tough on the Kiwis but you dont get much joy in sport so I will take the win however it came in the end.  Fucking hell, we win a world cup!
