WATCH: England celebrate as cricketers win World Cup final over New Zealand
England were among the millions of people up and down the country gripped by the Cricket World Cup final as their fellow international sportsmen beat New Zealand in a dramatic super-over victory.
England’s rugby union squad are currently on a training camp ahead of their own World Cup campaign, which begins in September in Japan, and they too will hope to be crowned the world champions in the final on 2 November.
On Sunday evening, England Rugby tweeted a video of the players gathered around a screen watching the tense finale, and they celebrated as Jos Buttler broke the bails to clinch the narrowest of wins.
That was tense, @englandcricket 🏆
