    Black Caps: Despondent, gutted, heartbroken

    The Black Caps are reeling after being on the receiving end of what's being labelled the greatest one day international in cricket history.

    New Zealand's 241 for eight in the World Cup final was matched by England, who then managed 15 in their Super Over, which was also equalled by the Black Caps.

    However England taste victory after hitting 24 boundaries, while New Zealand managed 16.

    Black Caps allrounder Jimmy Neesham is struggling to hold back the tears.

    He says they gave themselves a chance, but it just felt like nothing was going to go their way.

    England captain Eoin Morgan says it means an immense amount to his side.

    He says it's been a four year journey, with today about getting over the line.
