But he kept his cool on the biggest stage of all to set up a famous win, just two months into his international career. <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a title="Williamson and New Zealand didn t lose, they only missed the trophy" href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/articles/icc-cricket-world-cup-2019-final-kane-williamson-and-new-zealand-didnt-lose-they-only-missed-the-trophy-869254">Williamson and New Zealand didn t lose, they only missed the trophy</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>"I actually went to Morgs first, I had an idea I was going to do it (bowl the Super Over) but I wanted to double check that he wanted me to do it," said Archer as per an ICC release. <p></p> <p></p>"I think it was going fine until the six, and then (Ben) Stokes told me even before the over: 'Win or lose, today does not define you. Everyone believes in you.' <p></p> <p></p>"He came to talk to me because of that (Kolkata). He probably went through the same emotions, the same feelings but being on the losing side. <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a title="Ben Stokes lost for words , Jofra Archer cherishes biggest thing in his life as England lift maiden World Cup title" href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/cricket-world-cup-2019-england-vs-new-zealand-final-ben-stokes-lost-for-words-jofra-archer-cherishes-biggest-thing-in-his-life-as-england-lift-maiden-world-cup-ti-869207">Stokes lost for words , Archer cherishes biggest thing in his life as England lift maiden World Cup title</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>"If we had lost today, I don't know what I would have done tomorrow. <p></p> <p></p>"To back up what he said, if we did lose there is a T20 coming up next year and I would have another chance. <p></p> <p></p>"Rooty came up to me and said some inspirational words as well. I knew that if we did lose, it wasn't the end of the world. I am glad that the guys look up to me and they trust me to do it." <p></p> <p></p>"The skipper (Eoin Morgan) really believed in me, even after the six. A lot of captains could have had their head in their hands, but he was really calm and really understanding." <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a title="Sensational Stokes leads England to stunning World Cup triumph in thrilling super-over win" href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/sensational-stokes-archer-lead-england-to-stunning-world-cup-triumph-in-thrilling-super-over-win-against-new-zealand-869169">Sensational Stokes leads England to stunning World Cup triumph in thrilling super-over win</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>And after Stokes' heroics with the bat took England's men's team to a first-ever World crown in 44 years of trying -- Archer admitted it felt a bit like fate played a role at the home of cricket. <p></p> <p></p>"It was serous passion, this is a great team, I cannot imagine a better bunch of guys to share it with. I can't put it into words, I can't believe we actually won the game," he said. <p></p> <p></p>"Looking back, a lot of things went our way. The last five overs of the run chase in particular. I guess it was just meant to be," he added.
