England face day of destiny in World Cup final against New Zealand

England vs Australia in World Cup semis: Blockbuster of a match England beat Australia to reach Cricket World Cup final

England captain Morgan: "I think in general throughout the tournament the scores have been a lot lower than they have previously here in the last three or four years".

Eoin Morgan's England can cap a stunning white-ball transformation in Sunday's Cricket World Cup final but awaiting them at Lord's will be a New Zealand side chasing their own slice of history.

England head coach Trevor Bayliss has said he will step down from his position regardless of how the team fares in the Cricket World Cup final against New Zealand on Sunday and the Ashes test series against Australia in August and September.

"Us, as a team, we have learned to enjoy ourselves, particularly days like this, even if they don't go well".

The worth of all that work showed when Morgan's men, now top of the one-day worldwide rankings, thrashed reigning champions Australia by eight wickets in the semi-final at Edgbaston on Thursday.

The hosts saw off Australia in emphatic fashion on Thursday to reach their first World Cup final since 1992.

It was noticeable that in the immediate aftermath of the win over Australia at Edgbaston, Morgan, who had struck the winning runs and ended unbeaten on 45, was quick to acknowledge the role that his backroom staff had played.

"Morgs is as cool as ice with everything he does", England allrounder Chris Woakes said.

England completed a stunning victory over Australia on Thursday to set up a decider against 2015 runners-up New Zealand at Lord's.

"I think it would be really important for someone like New Zealand", he said.

On Friday, ICC named the match officials for World Cup final and once again fans took to Twitter to express their displeasure.

Waugh, an International Cricket Council World Cup ambassador, was speaking at an event in Trafalgar Square, central London, to promote the Criiio Cup. Roy had signalled for a review after being dismissed, before realising that his opening partner, Jonny Bairstow, had already unsuccessfully utilised England's solitary challenge.

"That has worked out extremely well for us and given the support that we've had throughout, the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board), the backroom staff, as players we have taken that as far as we can so far".

"I'd be lying if I said we weren't a bit overawed by the change of scenery", said Taylor as he looked back to New Zealand's first and only match on Australian soil in that tournament.
