Kane Williamson breaks another record at World Cup

Kane Williamson breaks another record at World Cup

New Zealand star Matt Henry came over from New Zealand at the age of 18 on a one-year scholarship at the sixth form of the school in Belstead Road.

While Woakes had the best figures statistically, it was the tall Liam Plunkett (3/42 in 10 overs), who used the cross-seam variations effectively to stop the Black Caps on their tracks.

"This has been a four-year journey, we have developed a lot".

Derek Pringle was the only previous England player to take three wickets in a World Cup final, his haul coming against Pakistan in 1992.

The value of that work showed when England, now top of the one-day worldwide rankings, thrashed reigning champions Australia by eight wickets in the semi-final at Edgbaston with the kind of performance that justified their billing as pre-tournament favourites.

For a man in and out of his national side, Plunkett showed great composure in his spell at Lord's.

Jason Roy speaks: "Speechless, buddy".

Needing a fast start, New Zealand called on Trent Boult to make an early breakthrough, as he has throughout the tournament. Playing against New Zealand is always a good event, they are good lads. And I intermittently bolstered all that, in turn, by listening to the BBC's radio commentary, before that went dead on me.

If Erasmus had given that out in his original decision, the pressure would've had well and truly been on England.

England captain Morgan was subsquently caught exceptionally by Lockie Ferguson, as England's chances of winning the match took a dramatic fall.

In the final, the rollercoaster continued, only for the heroics of Stokes to leave England as worthy champions, matching the achievement of the England women's team on the same ground two years ago.

Stokes made 84 not out before returning for England in the Super Over.

A monumental partnership between Stokes and Buttler brought them back into the game mid-innings, however. Ben Stokes produced a masterclass to anchor and drive England's run chase, whereas Colin de Grandhomme, Henry Nicholls, Trent Boult, and the New Zealand team were very unlucky to lose.

Australian World Cup-winning captain Steve Waugh said England could go down as one of the greatest teams in one-day global history if they win on Sunday.
