The Cricket World Cup Final

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:15 pm on 15 July 2019

The ecstasy and agony of sport were well and truly on show last night into this morning, as the Black Caps and England played out one of the greatest cricket matches in recent memory in the World Cup Final

In the end, cruelly, the English side took the trophy based on the number of BOUNDARIES they'd struck, following a tied match AND a tied super over.

Writer Rajorshi Chakraborti has spent the morning in an existential crisis and joins us to make sense of it all.
