HIGHLIGHTS

  • 00:47 (IST)

    EOIN MORGAN: I'd like to commiserate Kane and his team. The example that they lead is hugely commendable to him and his team. It was a tough wicket where everyone found it tough to score. Buttler and Stokes put together a partnership, and I thought that would take us deep, and it did. This has been a four-year- journey - and we find it hard to play on wickets like that. To get over the line today means the world to us. I was being cooled down by Plunkett, which isn't a good sign. Some of the support staff - not only the best in our team, but in the world, they really helped. Full credit to the two boys who went out for the super over, given that they were there most recently. Archer just improves every time he goes out there. Really incredible - everyone in the change room today, Willey, Billings, whoever missed out on the squad - I'd like to mention them too.

  • 00:41 (IST)

    KANE WILLIAMSON: We were thinking about the overheads. We thought runs on the board - we would have liked 10-20 more. But in a World Cup final this was a competitive total. The bowlers really put the batsmen under pressure. It had to go down to the last ball, and then the last ball of the next little match, but a great match all round. It was a shame that the ball hit Stokes' bat, but I just hope it doesn't happen in moments like that. I don't wish to nitpick, just hope it never happens in such moments ever again. The left-hand right-hand combination was useful in the superover, looking at the short boundary, but it's unfair to critique a match fought with such small margins.

  • 00:32 (IST)

    BEN STOKES: *Loud cheers!* Pretty good innit? I'm pretty lost for words. All the hardwork that's gone on in these four years, and to execute with such a good game is unthinkable. Thanks to everyone for all the support. We just kept talking during the partnership with Jos, and the run-rate wasn't getting away, and in the last over when the ball hit the bat and went for four - I apologize to Kane for that. I definitely wasn't going to bowl the last over (laughs). It's fantastic, without the lads, the family, and the support, it's just been incredible.

  • 00:00 (IST)

    ENGLAND WIN WORLD CUP: Archer starts the final over of the match. And he starts with a wide. Next ball Kiwis get three runs. On the second ball of the over Neesham slogs Archer into the stands.

22:42 (IST)

Neesham starts a fresh over. Kiwis are in a desperate need of a wicket here. Dots balls aren't creating enough pressure at the moment. And in the middle of nowhere, Neesham produces a brilliant yorker that floors Stokes. Four runs come from the over as England are 177/4.

22:16 (IST)

Henry continues. It's a good one from the bowler as he gives away only two runs. The pressure is building on this pair. They need to up the scoring rate now. After 36 overs the score moves to 143/4.

21:59 (IST)

Santner continues. He has been exceptional throughout the tournament in not giving any width to the batsmen. But Buttler and Stokes are growing in confidence. Kiwis need to break this partnership. After 33 overs England are 129/4.

England vs New Zealand , ICC World Cup 2019 Final at Lords Highlights: England Win Super Over Despite Tie, Lift World Cup

England vs New Zealand (ENG vs NZ), ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 ODI Final at Lord's Latest Updates:EOIN MORGAN: I'd like to commiserate Kane and his team. The example that they lead is hugely commendable to him and his team. It was a tough wicket where everyone found it tough to score. Buttler and Stokes put together a partnership, and I thought that would take us deep, and it did. This has been a four-year- journey - and we find it hard to play on wickets like that. To get over the line today means the world to us. I was being cooled down by Plunkett, which isn't a good sign. Some of the support staff - not only the best in our team, but in the world, they really helped. Full credit to the two boys who went out for the super over, given that they were there most recently. Archer just improves every time he goes out there. Really incredible - everyone in the change room today, Willey, Billings, whoever missed out on the squad - I'd like to mention them too.

PREVIEW: The last time England and New Zealand met in the 2019 World Cup, it was a group stage encounter and the hosts broke a 27-year-old record to beat the Kiwis in a showpiece event tie. But all that will count for nothing when the two teams clash in the final at Lord's on Sunday. While New Zealand beat favourites India to seal the final spot, England thrashed arch-rivals Australia by eight wickets to set up the final date.

On paper, it will clearly be a case of home advantage standing Eoin Morgan's men in good stead, but as Kiwi coach Gary Stead hinted on Friday, calling the New Zealand boys underdogs for the final clash would be unfair. After all, they beat the much-fancied Indians to book their ticket to London. While both teams have quality bowling attacks, the batting of the New Zealand outfit is something that will definitely bother the Kiwis, especially the poor form of experienced opener Martin Guptill. While his direct hit to dismiss M.S. Dhoni did change the outcome of the semi-final between India and New Zealand, he would wish to give the Kiwis a good start at the top. And there is a positive in there. Guptill's first ODI in England was at Lord's in May 2013 and the opener scored 103* against the Englishmen in that game. But he will come up against Jofra Archer and Mark Wood and the duo have literally been on fire in this edition of the showpiece event picking up 19 and 17 wickets respectively. Archer also has the highest dot balls to his name with 338 and like he showed in the game against Australia, his pace can be quite disconcerting when he is on song.

Archer isn't the only concern though for the Kiwis. Another man who has been a pain in the back of most teams this year, has been Jason Roy, and while he was fined for challenging the decision of umpire Kumar Dharmasena in the semi-final game, he hasn't been suspended and will be free to play. And if the 85 at Edgbaston was anything to go by, New Zealand have their task cut out. To be fair to the Kiwis, while the bowling attack of the two teams look almost at par on paper, England's batting has a lot more depth as compared to the Kiwis, and Kane Williamson's boys will have their task cut out if they are to clean the batting up. But then, on a given day, anything can happen and the New Zealand players will definitely take confidence from their semi-final encounter against India.

The weather, after troubling the cricketers right through the tournament, is expected to be bright and sunny and that should mean a slight advantage to the batsmen. The wickets to have started to get slower and the bowlers have been using a lot of cutters recently. Interestingly, New Zealand hold the edge when it comes to matches against England in both regular ODIs as well as World Cup encounters. While they lead 43-41 in regular ODIs, the record is 5-4 in the World Cups. And England would definitely wish to change that come Sunday.

Whoever wins at the end of this one, world cricket is set to have a new champion. And going by the record of the last few World Cups, the hosts definitely hold the edge as India won in 2011 and Australia in 2015.

Squads: England: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Moeen Ali, James Vince.

New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, Colin de Grandhomme, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Matt Henry, Trent Boult, Colin Munro, Tom Blundell, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson.
