Rashid and Moeen Ali are two Muslims who featured in England's World Cup triumph, while the team includes several players who were born in other countries.

There have always been concerns about declining player numbers in English cricket, with the sport hidden behind a television paywall in Britain since England's iconic 2005 Ashes series triumph.

Described as the best World Cup final of all time and one of the most exciting matches ever, England managed to raise the trophy for the first time in their history.

Though India did not qualify for the final, the craze for cricket does not die down. Obviously today is a big day of sport with Wimbledon and the Silverstone GP going on.

When they do get back on home soil she said they'll get the celebration they deserve.

"The last over didn't go too well but I have Ben to thank".

New Zealand pair Jimmy Neesham and Guptill also struck 15 off Jofra Archer but England won courtesy of a superior boundary count - 26 to 17 - across regulation play and the Super Over. Struggling to make his ground, Stokes dived towards his crease before the ball hit his bat and deflected towards the boundary for a bonus four runs. I'd like to say I was happy for England but it would take a couple of hours to say that. "It has quite diverse backgrounds and actually find humour in the situation that we were in at the time was pretty cool". It was a fantastic game of cricket.

Iran has nothing to hide, says Tehran's IAEA ambassador
On July 4, the New York Times quoted Zarif as saying that he did not own any property or have any bank accounts outside Iran. On the same day, Iranian boats attempted to seize a British tanker in the Persian Gulf.

Kane Williamson admitted it was "tough to swallow" the fact that the boundary countback eventually decided the World Cup winners.

Finally, Team England was able to beat New Zealand during the super over and turned out to be the ultimate World Cup Champion of 2019.

Williamson, for whom this was a second straight World Cup final reverse after Australia overwhelmed New Zealand four years ago, said he felt "just gutted".

Nicholls and captain Kane Williamson put on 74 runs to bolster the New Zealand innings but Plunkett's two-wicket, cross-seam masterclass took the wind out of their sails.

Stokes and Buttler set New Zealand a total of 15 to win, with a three, single, four, single, two and a final four against bowler Trent Boult. I think the thing you walk away with is the amount of heart and the amount of fight the guys have shown throughout this whole campaign, but probably none more than the match we have just witnessed and both sides showed that today and it did come down to - I don't know how they won it - what was it, boundaries or something?

England, the pre-tournament favourites, clinched their maiden World Cup title, but their charge towards the title was not without luck.

Eoin Morgan's men, therefore, completed their remarkable turnaround since being dumped out in the group stage of the previous World Cup.

"Primrose Hill (a northwest London suburb near Lord's), that's about it". There's no Mount Rushmore.
