England overcame New Zealand to win their maiden World Cup at Lord's on Sunday. In what was a roller-coaster ride, the match went into the Super Over after both teams were tied at the score of 241 at the end of 100 overs of cricket. Even the Super Over ended in a tie post which the hosts were declared winners owing to the boundary count, with the hosts having scored 24 boundaries in their innings against New Zealand's 17.
Ben Stokes, who was adjudged Man of the Match for anchoring England's chase after a top-order collapse, got involved in a controversy after the ball had deflected off his bat as a result of which the all-rounder got six runs (he had run two and four in overthrows) in the final over of the second innings. However, this moment was also celebrated by some as it added some precious runs in the hosts' tally.
Among them was one of England's most reliable Test bowler Stuart Broad. Broad was seen jumping in delight after Ben Stokes had got those luck six runs. The video of him celebrating wildly was recorded by his County team-mate Ravichandran Ashwin. The video also saw other players of Nottinghamshire celebrating in joy.

Even Ashwin came forward and congratulated England after their epic triumph.
Both Ashwin and Broad, who were not in the scheme of things of their respective sides, had featured in the previous two editions of the quadrennial event. The veteran off-spinner was a part of India's triumphant 2011 squad. He was also there in the 2015 squad where the Men In Blue had finished as the semifinalists.
Meanwhile, Stuart Broad was there in the 2011 squad where England were knocked in the quarterfinals. He was also a member of the 2015 side where the Eoin Morgan-led side failed to progress beyond the group stages.
