Get in!!!!

Horrible way for NZ to lose though (after losing the last World Cup Final and hoping to put that right).

And it could so easily have been us!

Fantastic absolutely brilliant England, but as Nasser Hussein said cricket was also a winner.

Got to give massive credit to Roy for that clean fielding and accurate throw under huge pressure on the last ball...imagine how much he must have been shitting it as that ball came towards him.

Oh my my my...Kiwis were so unlucky.

Feels not right somehow.

I've never seen anything like it in sport. The ebb and flow, the tension, the pressure. Fucking hell!

Stokes unreal. That's one unbelievable finish!

Missed most of it because of a trip out with our grandson, tried to keep in touch but luckily got home for the final knockings.  What a finish, such a fine margin would have been incomprehensible at the start of play.  Who would have seen that coming?

Not complaining obviously, but shouldnít the team whoíve lost less wickets win if the scores are level?
