Cricket awaits new world champs after England-New Zealand final

New Zealand’s Jimmy Neesham

Jokes aside, the Black Caps coach said the team really appreciated the support the team had got from fans back in New Zealand.

"But at the same time there's a real commitment to that which is a really positive thing and it's held us in good stead to this point, so the focus for us is about the cricket that we want to play and we want to be proud of the performance that we put on the board".

Kane Williamson - New Zealand captain: "I think England rightly so deserve to be favourites". I had them as the favourites coming in, nothing changes now.

"In 1990, I was lucky enough to be on the ground staff at Lord's here and you had different duties when you turned up", he said.

New Zealand have done amazingly well to get into the final and well done to them.

England ruthlessly destroyed five-times champions Australia to move to the cusp of their maiden men's 50-over Cricket World Cup title, while New Zealand's crafty bowlers defended a small total against two-times champions India in the other semi-final.

New Zealand finished fourth after the league matches with five wins from nine matches, scraping past fifth-placed Pakistan who narrowly lost out on a spot in the semi-finals on net run rate.

"But I prefer winning than losing", he added.

"Whether having had experience in a final or not is a good thing".

"So treating both of those, the outcomes with respect and trying to learn from them to be better as a group and as an individual, I think is the best part". England is a big team.

"So for us to win it, I think around the country it would be awesome, great for the game".

"So if we are able to perhaps achieve something a little bit more realistic on that surface, then that gives you every chance to win the matches. It is a new challenge for each occasion, where we will need to make those adjustments quickly".
