New Zealand have been crowned the kings of softball after overcoming Australia in the final of the World Softball Championships in Canada.

The Black Sox fought back from a 3-2 deficit in the seventh inning after a grand slam homerun by Joel Evans edged them ahead 6-4, a lead which they never relinquished.

It’s the seventh time New Zealand have claimed the title of World Champions, with this their 10th straight berth in the finals.
