JOS Buttler had the last word from the final ball of the super over in a dramatic final at Lord's, as England won their first ever Cricket World Cup.

The Taunton-born and Wedmore-raised wicketkeeper received the ball from Jason Roy's throw to run out Martin Guptill, who was dashing for the second run required to hand New Zealand the victory.

The Kiwis had opted to bat first and made 241-8, Henry Nicholls top scoring with 55, as Liam Plunkett and Chris Woakes took three wickets apiece.

England were in major trouble at 86-4 in the reply, but Buttler (59) and Ben Stokes (84no) gave their side hope.

Buttler was caught off Lockie Ferguson (3-50), but by that point England were 196-5 and Stokes managed to get England to 241 all out.

The tie forced a super over - six balls delivered by both sides - and Stokes (8no) and Buttler (7no) scored 15.

Jofra Archer delivered to Jimmy Neesham (13no) and Guptill (1), and with two required off the final ball, Roy and Buttler conspired to see Guptill run out and the trophy go to England in front of the home fans.
