Wimbledon: Simona Halep beats Serena Williams; wins maiden title

Romania’s Simona Halep defeated seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams in the women’s singles final of the Wimbledon 2019. Halep ousted the 37-year-old American in straight sets (6-2, 6-2) in a match which lasted for only 56 minutes.

The 27-year-old became the first-ever Romanian to claim the Wimbledon title. It was Halep’s second Grand Slam title, having won the French Open last year. The result denied Williams from equaling Margaret Court’s all-time record of winning 24 Grand Slam singles titles.

World Cup: England end title drought after super over finish

In the finals of the ICC World Cup, England lifted their maiden title after beating New Zealand in a super over at Lord’s on Sunday.

Kane Williamson won the toss and opted to bat first. Despite getting good starts, the Kiwis struggled to build long partnerships and as a result, they scored 241 in their quota of overs.

Henry Nicholls was the top-scorer with 55 runs to his credit while Chris Woakes and Liam Plunkett picked up three wickets each.

England’s top-order struggled as they were 86/4 but Ben Stokes (84*) and Jos Buttler (59) played vital knocks to see their team through. Lockie Ferguson titled the game in New Zealand's favour as the match was tied in the end.

After scoring 15 runs in the one-over eliminator, New Zealand had to score 16 to win. The Kiwis scored 15 as well but England won the match by virtue of scoring more boundaries. 

Jofra Archer made his England debut less than three months ago, and has just bowled the winning Super Over in a World Cup final.
