This is the moment The World Cup officially came home.

It was a dramatic final day at Lord's and it began when New Zealand batted first, eventually finishing on an impressive 241/8 after 50.0 overs.

Nicholls top scored with 55 and England had a lot of work to do.

New Zealand: 241/8 ' 29-1 (Guptill), 103-2 (Williamson), 118-3 (Nicholls), 141-4 (Taylor), 173-5 (Neesham), 219-6 (de Grandhomme), 232-7 (Latham), 240-8 (Henry).

They started their innings poorly but encouraging outings from Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler gave England a real chance in the final stages.

Then in the last over, that man Stokes, who carried his bat for 84, produced heroics to send the game into a super over.

An exhausted Stokes and Buttler then headed to the crease for the super over and knocked a magnificent 15 runs between them.
