ECB announceno parade for England's World Cup heroes

There will be no victory parade for England's Cricket World Cup heroes despite their incredible super over victory against New Zealand
at Lord's.
With the Ashes beginning on August 1 the ECB have deemed there is insufficient in the two-and-a-half weeks before the first Test at Edgbaston, according to The Times
.
England's Test squad will report for an Ashes training camp on July 22 ahead of the inaugural four-day Test against Ireland at Lord's that week.
There will therefore be no repeat of the infamous drunken open-top bus parade through central London after the 2005 Ashes victory.
Celebrations are expected to be modest by comparison after Sunday's win as preparations move on the longer format of the game. 
Ben Stokes was player of the match after anchoring England's innings to matching the Kiwis' 241 with an unbeaten 84 from 98. 
He and Jos Buttler then hit 16 in the super over before Jofra Archer was entrusted with bowling England's over.
New Zealand matched England's 16 but lost because they hit only 16 boundaries in the match to England's 26.
