England's cricketers have been celebrating their historic World Cup win with fans at The Oval, the home of Surrey County Cricket Club.

Eoin Morgan's team triumphed in dramatic fashion at Lord's yesterday (14 July), beating New Zealand to win the trophy for the first time.

The match went to a 'Super Over' after both teams scored 241 runs in their respective innings and following a further six balls each still could not be separated.

With both teams on 15 runs a piece England were declared the victors having scored more boundaries in the match than the Kiwis.

This morning the players joined cricket fans, along with hundreds of school children, for a parade of the trophy - posing for photos and signing autographs.

Following the result tributes have been pouring in for the players, including from Her Majesty the Queen, who said:

"Prince Philip and I send our warmest congratulations to the England men's cricket team after such a thrilling victory in today's World Cup final.

"I also extend my commiserations to the runners-up New Zealand, who competed so admirably in today's contest and throughout the tournament."

Overnight viewing figures suggest that a peak of 4.5 million people watched the match on Channel 4, with an average of 2.4 million.

Sky also showed it on three channels, which had a combined average viewership of 1,474,000 people, and a peak of a shade under three million.
