England clinched the ICC World Cup 2019 trophy after a dramatic final at Lord's which witnessed the first-ever Super Over in the history of ODI cricket. And yet despite the Super Over the teams finished on the same score with England being declared winners as they hit more boundaries (26) than New Zealand (17) in the entire match.

The tournament provided us a lot of entertainment, happiness and heart-breaks but it also was a treat of numbers.
