Congrats to @Eoin16 & his brilliant team on winning the greatest cricket match I’ve ever had the privilege to watch. And commiserations to New Zealand who were mighty opponents.

Congratulations to England on winning the Cricket World Cup. New Zealand were outstanding and never gave up, that deflection over-throw of Stokes being a huge turning point, tragic for @BLACKCAPS , so near yet so far but they must be very proud. #CWCFinal19— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) July 14, 2019
