People were cheering and shouting out.” Outside the home of cricket, as jubilant England fans filed out of the ground, there was a party atmosphere – with cars beeping their horns in support, whistles being blown and sporadic cheering and chants. A similar atmosphere was seen at the fan zone in Trafalgar Square.

Describing how it felt to watch, Callum Stevens, 23, from London told PA: “I’ve watched cricket all my life. I’ve never had a moment like that ever. “I can’t describe it. A super over. It never happens. Suddenly it’s the World Cup final and we’ve got to use a super over. “It’s absolute pandemonium. It went ballistic in there and everyone’s in the fountain. Euphoria. “The best sporting thing I’ve ever seen in my life hands down.”
