It will be a final to remember for Ben Stokes after redeeming himself after England lost to WI in 2016. And for Pakistan, they won the hearts with their fighting spirit. And to all the readers goodbye from the Free Press Journal sports desk.

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. 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. Representing your country in World Cups is amazing, but it has been a good one.

Ben Stokes has done it again. Leads England to another World title. A brilliant half-century by the all-rounder. Even when Pakistan bowlers were making scoring difficult for England, Stokes kept fighting and never let the run-rate go out of hand. England are now the holders of the ODI world Cup as well as the T20 World Cup trophy. Become the first team to achieve the feat.

And that's the end of the tournament for Shaheen Shah Afridi. He hobbles after bowling one delivery. He had two overs left. Advantage England.    

13 November 2022 06:39 PM IST

A loud cheer from the Pakistan fans... ohh Shaheen Afridi is back. A big boost for Pak that their main man is moving freely after the injury scare

Bad news for Pakistan! Shaheen Afridi is limping. He hust his knees while take a catch. He is leaving the ground. Will this cost Pakistan the match or will he return to win the match for Pakistan?
