Experienced campaigner Ben Stokes anchored the tricky chase with an unbeaten 52 despite occasional scratchiness and had a calm Moeen Ali by his side as England chased down the 138-run target in 19 overs to regain the title they had won in 2010 in the West Indies. Jos Buttler and his men become the first team to hold the 20 over and 50 over titles at the same time.
''This is one of my best days of cricketing career. I feel as a team we deserved it, over a long period of time we have played some amazing cricket, obviously fell short but the semis and then today to win against a brilliant Pakistan side is an amazing feeling, especially in front of fans and family. It was just about keeping my intent, if I get out I get out, being positive and it was the right balance to Stokesy, he played some great shots and put in a crucial partnership,'' Moeen told the official broadcaster.
