United Kingdom, London
July 15, 2019 at 02:12 GMT +00:00 · Published

England’s historic victory in the Cricket World Cup “means absolute everything” to the team, said England captain Eoin Morgan during a post-match press conference in London on Sunday.

Reflecting on the nail-biting game, which saw England triumph over the Kiwis after both the match and super over were tied, Morgan said: “the planning, the hard work, the dedication, the commitment and the little bit of luck today really did get us over the line.”

He also praised the strong performance of the Black Caps, saying that the English team were still newcomers and still had a lot to learn from them.

“I commend the Black Caps and Kane, they have been incredible, a hugely admirable team, spirit, the way they play, the fight they show and the fact they have done it for an extremely long time,” he said.

It is the first time England has won the Cricket World Cup.
