Written by : Info Box Team

We have witnessed a lot of defining moments in this 2019 World Cup. Let us discuss some of the most exciting things happened in the showpiece event.

  • The incredible opening combination of Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow mindblowing innings against India at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham was one of the game-changing moments for England in the World Cup.

  • One of the greatest batsmen of India, Rohit Sharma has become the first player ever to hit 5 centuries in the World Cup tournament and his best innings came against South Africa in the opening match.

  • Facing Mitchell Starc itself is very hard for any batsmen. The Australian speedster produced one of the best deliveries in the 50-overs format as he castles England's Ben Stokes wicket with an amazing yorker delivery.

  • Martin Guptill's run out in the final ball of the super over was the most dramatic moment in the World Cup history as the Black Caps lost the final game at Lord's.

  • When umpire Dharmasena gave 6 runs (instead of 5) to England for overthrow in the final over that changed the situation favour to England as they easily tied the match against New Zealand and they entered into the super over before clinching the trophy on a boundary count at Lord's in London. Kiwis' captain Kane Williamson and his boys were disappointed very much and shown some matured performance on the 22-yard strip. The spirited and daring skipper Kane Williamson supported his team members during the hard times and proved he is a perfect gentleman in the gentleman's game.

  • England emerged as the 2019 World Cup champions in the cricketing world and became the first English team to bag the trophy for their nation. This moment will be etched in cricket freak memories forever.

  • Sometimes, the game of cricket can have a sad ending, New Zealand lost the World Cup final due to a boundary count. They played like a real champion in the game, no one in the cricket history has seen such a dramatic final game at Lord's in London. Cricket fraternity describes this clash as the most exciting white-ball match in world cricket.
