Re: Come on England!

I have just watched the 'super over'. (I was watching our recording).

An hour ago, I thought England had had it.

A minute ago, I was almost peeing myself! (But I didn't.)

I can't believe how close this was - down to the last ball. Archer must have been under such pressure.

Well, England won and, as I said earlier, I'm going to toast their success with a tot of Laphroaig.

Having said that, the New Zealanders certainly deserved to win as well.

To be honest, I'd have accepted a draw.

Congratulations to BOTH teams.

You and me both. I was flicking between the tennis and the cricket - both excellent games. The cricket was actually exciting. That's something I would never find myself saying normally, but the tension at the end of the match before the super over decider when Stokes hit that six and put England back in contention was palpable.

Well done England and well played to both teams.

Re: Come on England!

That just has to be the most thrilling finish to any cricket match I've ever seen. I didn't know about the boundaries rule. I thought we were going to win on wickets taken but never mind it was great!

Re: Come on England!

It's always a shame after such a tight game, just like the tennis final, that someone has to lose. I'd be quite happy for both teams to share the trophy, but in a winner takes all situation that is not possible. New Zealand should be very proud, they played in a sporting and determined way.

It must be particularly galling for New Zealand to find out that England had been mistakenly awarded an extra run at a crucial time. All credit to them for not making a fuss.
