A new cricket champion will be crowned as neither side has won the World Cup before.

Regardless of the result on Sunday, Morgan's team have shown that it will be no longer acceptable for England to turn up to a World Cup underprepared, like they did so often in the past.

"How good will it be when you guys stuff the Poms on the home of cricket, let's go lads", Read said, prompting fist pumps and whooping from team mates all dressed in All Blacks kit.

The Black Caps, runners-up in 2015, have the tough task of facing the world's top-ranked one-day global side, who destroyed reigning champions Australia in the semi-finals. "Wish you all the best on behalf of the All Blacks".

Jackson-Cohen's other credits include the BBC drama Man In an Orange Shirt , as well as films like The Healer and The Raven . It's unclear exactly what the twist on The Invisible Man is for this new film, but there is one.


Asked what the odds were for Guptill to score a century: "Martin Guptill to score 100 and New Zealand win the match, $9". The hosts then defeated Australia in the semi-final, to enter their first World Cup final after 1992. "I think it's important to recognise the work that has been done and the foundations that have been laid". Coming into this tournament from the start, they were favourites and they've been playing really good cricket.

New Zealand Playing XI: Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, James Neesham, Tom Latham (w), Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson.

"We are quite keen on winning as well".

"It's forever learning, learning about the game and about yourself and different emotions that you can feel", he said. The pitch for the final looked exceptionally green on Saturday but a cautious Williamson refused to read too much into conditions a day before the game.
