England cricketers celebrate with fans after World Cup triumph

Beaming smiles could be seen on both the faces of young fans and their World Cup heroes, who signed autographs and held aloft the trophy in the Monday (July 15) event.

England beat New Zealand at Lord's on Sunday (July 14) in a thrilling match described as one of the best One Day Internationals of all time by those watching it.

Eoin Morgan's team eventually won on a boundary count-back after the scores were level after both 50 overs and a super over decider.

Cricket's governing body in England and Wales - the ECB - wanted to use the tournament to boost participation in the sport, and were rewarded with huge interest in the team as they reached - and then won - the final in style.
