It saw England win their first ever World Cup title and crowned a memorable tournament held in the UK this summer.

While the team and thousands at Lord’s celebrated long into the night after the match, fans around the country were hoping for a victory parade to join in with the festivities.

England held an open top bus tour around London following their famous victory in the 2005 Ashes.

But there will be no repeat of those scenes this summer.


The ECB deemed there is not enough time between the final and their Ashes warm-up Test to accommodate a celebratory parade.

England face Ireland in a Test match starting on Wednesday, July 24 at Lord’s ahead of the upcoming five game series against Australia.

While fans won’t get the chance to their see their heroes, England’s stars will doubt enjoy their remarkable achievement for some time to come yet.

Bowler Mark Wood told talkSPORT: “It’s the best feeling ever. We were dead and buried twice, I thought. I didn’t think before the two at the end we were going to make it.

“We got a bit of luck and Stokesy played unbelievably well. Then in the super over when they got the runs and when they needed three from two I was thinking ‘it’s not going to be our day’

“It was almost just meant to be and it was bodies flying everywhere and everyone just grabbing each other.

“Jofra [Archer] was on the floor with Stokes. It was mental but brilliant at the same time.”

He added: “It did feel different. Obviously if we accept that it does feel different in probably in ways the first game of the tournament felt different.

“I think as long as you recognise it and accept it then it’s alright. On the field, as soon as I bowled my first ball then I was okay. Once you get into the game then it’s alright.

“It’s where the training takes over and the match takes over so you take it from there really.”
