    Yes it's not the quickest ten miles to travel. I suspect the quickest method involves a rather fearless motorcyclist.

    It's coming down to the wire. 5 overs to go; that is, 30 balls and England requires 39 runs to beat New Zealand.

    They need to average 9.75 runs an over. Their current run rate is 4.41.

    Pity they didn't break the tie by number of wickets lost
    England scored 15 from their super over

    England were unbelievably lucky in the last over with a fluke 6 runs. With three balls to go in the match, England batsman Ben Stokes hit a ball into the deep and ran for two.

    As he slid to make his ground, the ball ricocheted off his bat and across the boundary for four more runs to give him 6 runs.

    What is even more galling is the fact that Stokes is a New Zealander.
