HHH sends customised WWE belt to England
WWE superstar and Chief Operating Officer, ‘Triple H- The Game’ congratulated the England cricket team in the wake of their maiden World Cup success on July 14. He also took to Twitter and presented the Eoin Morgan-led team with a customised World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) championship belt.
England got the better of New Zealand in a thrilling encounter which stretched till the super-over after both the teams ended on 241 in the regular quota of overs. The game also ended in a tie in the super over and unfortunately, England were declared the winners as they won the World Cup on the basis of boundary count rule.
This was the second time that Triple H sent a customised WWE championship belt. Previously, the WWE superstar sent a WWE championship belt to Rohit Sharma, after the Mumbai Indians won the Indian Premier League (IPL) title for the third time.
“An incredible tournament, an awe-inspiring final, and a team of worthy champions. Congratulations to @EnglandCricket for winning the ICC Men’s @CricketWorldCup 2019! This custom @WWE Championship is YOURS! @WWEUK,” Triple H tweeted.

Meanwhile, England skipper Eoin Morgan confessed that he was not pleased with the way the 2019 World Cup ended. The two titans England and New Zealand played out a match that was tied two times, the first one in a regular 50-over match and then in the Super Over.
England got lucky as Morgan’s side won the title based on their superior tally of boundaries in the match.
“I don’t think it’s fair to have a result like that when there’s very little between the sides,” Morgan told The Times. “I don’t think there was one moment that you could say: ‘That actually cost the game there.’ It was quite balanced,” Morgan said.
“I know. I was there, that happened.’ (But) I can’t stick my finger on where the game was won and lost. I’m not sure winning it makes it any easier. It would be more difficult to lose, of course,” the 32-year-old said.
“There’s no defining moment that you’d say: ‘Yes, we thoroughly deserved it.’ It’s just been crazy.”
England ODI skipper Morgan, however, agreed that the intriguing final was probably the greatest ever cricket match as it had everything right from sheer entertainment to pure madness. “By a long way. I can’t think of a game that’s come close. Madness. I should be cheery about it, shouldn’t I?” he said.
