England cricketers are on top of the world. The men’s England team emulated the stunning women’s England World Cup win of 2017, by winning their male World Cup earlier this year.
In 2017 our England women completed a stunning fightback to beat India by nine runs and win the Women's World Cup at Lord's, the home of England cricket.
BBC Sport reported that:
“Chasing 229, India looked set for victory at 191-3, but Anya Shrubsole pinned Punam Raut lbw for 86 to spark a collapse of seven wickets for 28 runs. The seamer finished with 6-46 - the best figures in a World Cup final - as India were bowled out for 219 with eight balls unused. Even as Shrubsole was in the middle of a stunning spell of 5-11 in 19 deliveries, India were within touching distance of the highest successful chase in a World Cup final and a first major trophy. Fears that England may have missed their chance were raised when Jenny Gunn dropped a sitter at mid-off to reprieve Poonam Yadav. But Shrubsole bowled Rajeshwari Gayakwad next ball to spark joyous scenes on the pitch and among the majority of fans in a sell-out crowd.”
Not to be out done, in 2019, England beat New Zealand to win the men's World Cup after one of the most awesome games of cricket ever witnessed was tied twice.
BBC Sport also reported that:
“In an emotional and electric atmosphere at Lord's, both sides scored 241 in their 50 overs and were level on 15 when they batted for an extra over apiece. It meant England were crowned world champions by virtue of having scored more boundary fours and sixes - 26 to New Zealand's 17 - in the entire match. That it even got to that stage was astonishing in itself and came as a result of a barely believable conclusion at the home of cricket - the first tie in a World Cup final. England required 15 from the last over of the regular match. Ben Stokes hit a six and then benefited when a throw from the deep hit his bat and was deflected for four overthrows. He could not get the two needed from the last ball - Mark Wood was run out coming back for the second - but ended 84 not out and joined Jos Buttler for the super over. In glorious evening sunshine, they were roared on by a febrile crowd that belted out Sweet Caroline in the change of innings. When New Zealand replied, Jimmy Neesham hit Jofra Archer's second ball for six, then scrambled to leave Martin Guptill needing two from the last delivery. As Jason Roy's throw came in from deep mid-wicket, a diving Guptill was short when Buttler removed the bails, sending England and the whole of Lord's into delirious celebration.”
To celebrate these momentous occasions, Royal mail have celebrated both Women’s and Men’s England cricket team’s historic victories through Royal Mail special stamps and white and gold postboxes. This is the first time that the England Men’s and Women’s teams have held both the ICC Cricket World Cup winners’ titles simultaneously. This will be a unique and highly visible way to celebrate the huge achievement of both teams.
