THE WIVES and girlfriends of England's cricket stars revelled in Sunday's magnificent World Cup win with a series of heartfelt Instagram posts.
Those players accompanied by their loved ones at Lord's made sure to thank them for playing their part in the stunning victory.
Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokes, Jason Roy, Joe Root and more were pictured embracing their partners on the pitch.
And the Wags paid tribute to their beloveds' amazing achievements via social media.
Having lost the toss, England were made to field first and restricted New Zealand to 241.
After equalling the Black Caps' score in dramatic circumstances, the hosts held their nerve in the super over to win courtesy of their boundaries total.
Tara Morgan, wife of captain Eoin, wrote: "Could not possibly be prouder!!
"It has been four long years, what a finish!!"
For opening bastman Roy, the chance to share the moment on the Lord's turf with young daughter Everly was a special one.
Before the tournament, he told Sun Sport of his horror at finding the baby girl "lifeless" in bed and the through-the-night hospital trip that ensued when she was struck by a stomach infection.
Clare Stokes, partner of man of the match Ben, wrote online: "Bursting with pride! What a day!!!
"I have no more words!!"
Among the most heartfelt moments was the Stokes' embrace after his role in the super over.
And Clare has posted a number of pictures of the Wags squad, captioning one "girl power!" after the semi-final beating of Australia.
Girl Power! ✌?

England were favourites going into the tournament but the pressure of hosting it sprouted on a number of times.
Group stage defeats to Pakistan, Australia and Sri Lanka crystallised fans' fears it would all go wrong at their big moment.
But two stirring performances versus India and New Zealand in the groups sent them to the final-four, where they demolished the Aussies before Sunday's epic showdown.
Sarah Wood, wife of fast bowler Mark, added on Instagram: "I couldn’t be prouder."
