    Hope you've enjoyed my coverage!

    And if not, you're stuck with me on football from next month.

    Lucky you!

    SMS Message: Being an Englishman living in Glasgow, I was expecting to find plenty of honorary New Zealand fans in the pub for the game. England's sports teams are not always greeted with much support north of the border, but the whole pub stood up and cheered the boys home! Incredible feeling! from Will, Glasgow

    SMS Message: You know something special happened yesterday when cricket, a sport most people call 'boring', is the talk of the office. Big smile on my face to hear this after 24 years of living and breathing the game! Well done England! from Anon

  8. Ben Stokes' New Zealand parents on England Cricket World Cup win

    England beat New Zealand in a thrilling final at Lord's to win the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup.

    Man of the match Ben Stokes hit an unbeaten 84 before the match went to the super over.

    Born in New Zealand, he moved to Cockermouth, Cumbria, when he was 12 - his father Gerard was made head coach at Workington Town rugby league club.

    Speaking from his home in Christchurch, New Zealand, Stokes' dad joked he was "probably the most hated father in New Zealand" while his mum Deb said she was "numb" and "hiding under my blanket" during the game.

  10. 'I'm really pleased for Ben Stokes' - Root

    Engand win the Cricket World Cup

    Joe Root said: "The way we approach things in the side, generally we're a pretty grounded team. We try to be realistic about things. Going into the tournament we knew there'd be some bumps in the road and we'd have to go through some tough times to get to where we wanted to at the end of it.

    "We've got some strong characters. Look at Ben and Jos' partnership yesterday. The way they went about that and soaked up pressure to take it as deep as they did.

    "And for Ben, I couldn't be more proud after everything that he's been through. He's a leader in the dressing room and a brilliant bloke to be associated with, so for him to enjoy yesterday and everything that comes with it, I'm really pleased for him."

    Royal Mail to paint postboxes white and gold

    Postboxes in cities which hosted both men's and women's Cricket World Cup matches will be given a special paint job to mark England's success.

    The men's victory yesterday over New Zealand in a nail-biting classic means both teams hold the world cup winners titles simultaneously for the first time.

    The boxes, which will be painted white with a gold bat and ball, will be appearing all over the country, including in Nottingham - which hosted games in the men's tournament - along with Derby and Leicester, which hosted games in the 2017 women's tournament.
