Celebrate England’s Cricket Triumph with England Cricket World Cup Winners Miniature Sheets
The Royal Mail are celebrating the historic heroics of England’s Cricket Teams with two brand new England Cricket World Cup Winners Miniature Sheets!
Whilst the team who will be taking home the Ashes this year still hangs in the balance, history was made in July when England’s Men’s Cricket Team captured the illustrious ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 after a dramatic final full of twists, turns but ultimately, triumph.
With many describing it as one of the most amazing games of Cricket ever to have been played, England were able to win the match by the narrowest of margins as the Cricket World Cup Final was sent to a tie not only once, but twice!
The monumental win was first marked by the rollout of 15 special edition postboxes located close to each of the grounds in the UK that were used during the tournament, but Royal Mail are continuing the celebrations with an issue of two England Cricket World Cup Winners Miniature Sheets and the England Cricket World Cup Winners Presentation Pack, which contains both Miniature Sheets in a neatly crafted package.
Both England ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 Winners and an England ICC Men’s World Cup 2019 Winners will feature in the issue to mark the first time in history that the England Men’s and England Women’s teams have held both ICC Cricket World Cup winners’ titles simultaneously.
Learn more about these exciting new additions to the Special Stamps Calendar for 2019 below.
The England ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 Winners Miniature Sheet
On the 23rd of July 2017, the England Women’s Cricket Team lifted the ICC World Cup after beating India in the grand final with a deciding nine runs and gained revenge on their opponents who had previously beat them during the group stage of the tournament.
The England ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 Winners Miniature Sheet celebrates this win and makes up half of the set that help recognise England’s proud achievement of now being holders of both the Women’s and Men’s ICC Cricket World Cup titles simultaneously.
Featuring four stunning special stamps that capture the joyful spirit of each of the players during their historic win, the Miniature Sheet also features the subtle inclusion of the St. George’s Cross in the background along with the ICC 2017 Women’s World Cup logo and Three Lions “We are England Cricket” ECB official logo.
The England ICC Men’s World Cup 2019 Winners Miniature Sheet
The 14th of July 2019 marked the emphatic win of the ICC World Cup for England’s Men’s Cricket Team after a breathtaking final game against New Zealand.
With the game being taken to a ‘Super Over’, a gripping finale ensued, with New Zealand’s batsman, Martin Guptill, hitting the ball mid-wicket, resulting in a crazy scramble from England’s fielders to recover the ball before New Zealand could achieve a second run.
A last gasp throw back to the keeper as Guptill was declared out brought home the title for England, with this England ICC Men’s World Cup Winners Miniature Sheet featuring four special stamps of the unforgettable celebration scenes that soon followed.
Featuring a similar layout to the other miniature sheet in this brand new issue, the England ICC Men’s World Cup Winners Miniature Sheet includes a St. George’s Flag design as the main backdrop, with both the ICC 2019 England and Wales logo and the Three Lions “We are England Cricket” ECB logo adorning this miniature sheet design.
