England crowned new T20 CHAMPIONS!

Sam Curran | Player of the Match | Player of the Series: I don’t think I should be getting this, I think Ben Stokes should get this (PoTM.). Big square boundaries, so I knew my into the wicket bowling would work with big boundaries. I mixed it up with slower balls to make it tough for the batter. Incredibly special. We all look upto him. People question him but he’s incredible. Azaming crowd. I wanted to be adaptable coming into the tournament. I haven’t bowled much at the death before. Needed to be good with the bat too. How good is it to be a World Champ (smiles)!

Ben Stokes: In finals especially when chasing.. you probably forget all the hard work before that, how we bowled, Adil Rashid and Sam Curran won us the game. It was a tricky wicket and one that you never felt in, so to restrict them to 130-odd bowlers have to take a lot of credit for that. With that (defeat to Ireland) being so early in the competition we obviously had to address it, say what had to be said and then let it go. In tournaments like these you can’t carry baggage with you, that was a little blip on the way, credit to Ireland for turning up and beating us, but the best teams learn from their mistakes and not let it affect them. Pretty good evening. Representing your country in World Cups is amazing.. but it has been a good one.

Pakistan lock horns with England in Melbourne. Rain can play spoilsport during the final at MCG.

“Providing an opportunity is indeed divine but making good use of it is when the ball is put in our court. I’m thankful for where I stand today and I’ll continue to work harder to achieve what lies ahead.” – Babar Azam.

“Yeah, I’ve certainly had a few dreams about that kind of thing, and of course I think it really links back to what you were like as a kid really, the kind of things you would be doing in the garden with your brother and sister, pretending to lift a trophy and that kind of thing, and now to be able to have the opportunity to have a chance to live that kind of thing out is incredibly special.” – Jos Buttler.
