Really wasn’t expecting it to be that easy in the end, what a great feeling. I know the final is FTA but where? Still on one of the Sky channels?

Really looking forward to Sunday now

well it's never easy with us is it? Should have bet NZ when we were massive odds on, we always find a way to blow it.

Wouldn't be England without tension and a little self implosion... let's just hope we don't also get the 'inevitable disappointment' bit too.

Get in there!! What an absolutely incredible game. Hats off to both teams, amazing sporting drama.

Brilliant to see the culmination of 4 years work come to this for England.

I looked at going to this too but cheapest tickets I could find were £1500, if I’d known it was gonna go like that I think I’d have fucking paid it, WOW!!! :gr:

Was loads about for £350-£500 around the ground. Quality ending, feels very harsh on New Zealand losing on less boundaries, technically we were all out too although we wouldnt have gone for two if that mattered. Great for stokes too after kolkata.

Yeah I thought New Zealand were really unlucky with how good they bowled and then that one that hit Stokes bat and went for 6.
I thought Archer came back brilliantly too in that super over because when he went for 6 I thought it was done.

Chose a good day (tournament) to get in to this 'cricket' people speak of.

Surprised myself at how gripped I was and was rather emotional at the end. Sensational viewing.

All the breaks that seem to go against England in the footie went their way today, that's for sure.

Tie the game and then tie the tiebreaker- gotta be the most ridiculous game of all time! Utterly amazingly absurd.

What a moment. Only watched it back the 10 times or so, sure I'll top that up over the next few days. Great throw, and what a bit of work by Buttler as well! That was so easily fuckupable.

And when the chips are down, Stokes is just the man.

Aussie saying we got an extra run which wasn't allowed .

Well I am not sure New Zealand winning would have been any better for them!
But it also means Rashid would have been in bat, who's to say he wouldnt have hit the 4 required to win or got out then wood hit the 4, we will never know and quite frankly I dont care. One thing in cricket that needs addressing is with the reviews regarding the umpires call scenario, Jason Roy was out plumb lbw 1st ball, it shouldn't be an umpires call, hes out simple as that. I personally think every wicket given out by an umpire should automatically be reviewed to make sure its correct, then as a bowling side you get say 3 reviews to question an umpires decision if hes given not out.

That could get tiresome I think, you could potentially be having about 6-8 reviews every innings.

Thinking back to the match, if Hollywood screenwriters had come up with a movie like that, most of us would have said, " nah never happen" !
Fantastic brilliant game!!!!!
