Jofra Archer is celebrating World Cup glory with England - by the narrowest of margins.

The Sussex star ended an astonishing final on his knees after sending down the super over which decided the final against New Zealand at Lord’s.

Archer conceded 15 runs – but just six off the last four balls.

Each team scored 15 in the super over but England won by virtue of hitting most boundaries during the match.

Archer has made spectacular progress since making his senior debut with Sussex just three years ago.

But this crowned the fairy tale – and he kept his cool just when glory seemed to be getting away.

The match ended in a tie after New Zealand set 241-8 and England were 241 all out with Mark Wood run out off the final ball.

England sent in Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes, who scored 15 from their extra over, delivered by Trent Boult.

They then handed the ball to Archer to come in from the Nursery End as New Zealand sent out Jimmy Neesham and Martin Guptill.

Ball one: Wide called. A borderline decision. New Zealand 1-0.

Ball one: Yorker length and the Black Caps run two. 3-0.

Ball two: Neesham six into the Mound Stand. 9-0.

Ball three: Neesham two into the leg side. 11-0.

Ball four: Neesham two more as Guptill just makes his ground at the non-striker’s end. 13-0.

Ball five: A quick single back to Archer. 14-0.

Ball six: Guptill now on strike. NZ come back for the second but Guptill is run out by a yard. 15-1.

Archer took 1-42 from the Pavilion End during his regular ten overs and failed to score when he went in during the run chase.
