Men's Cricket World Cup 2019

Categories: Sport / Games

This was the 12th Men's Cricket World Cup, held four-yearly, and was contended by 10 countries. The two teams in the final (England and New Zealand) tied on 241 runs, requiring a 'super over' in order to decide the winner, but this was also tied. Eventually England was declared the winner using the boundary count back rule, having scored 26 boundaries to New Zealand's 17.
