The men’s sheet captures four moments from the team’s celebrations after beating New Zealand at Lord’s in what became a nail-biting final, that went to a super over.

The women’s sheet contains four pictures from their 2017 win, also at Lord’s, against India.

The two new sets of stamps feature images taken during the finals and celebrations of both England Men's and Women's ICC Cricket World Cup winning teams
