English captain, Eoin Morgan said in the post-match press conference that England should not shy away from the finals. This is the first time England reached in World Cup final since 1992.

“It’s a day to look forward to,” said Morgan.

Morgan praised his bowlers and for the opening spell which uprooted the Australian batting lineup.

Morgan further said, “We’ve created the opportunity to play in a World Cup final and it will be a matter of trying to keep doing the same things – produce what we can in performance, but also enjoy the day. Today was close to perfect performance, right from the two bowlers upfront – Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer bowled a hell of a spell. They put pressure on with early wickets and allowed us to stay on the front foot.”

“We’ve got better and better as a group over the last three games,” added batsman Morgan, who made 45 not out.

“We knew we had to do that to be contenders. Today was a step further in the performance. Everyone on the field and in the changing room loved every ball that was bowled. There was no lack of commitment, application. We had a bit of a day out. It’s cool when it happens like that, particularly when the bowlers bowl like that. It’s awesome.” Morgan added.

In World Cup 2015, England won only 2 games that too against Scotland and Afghanistan, the associate teams. They could not beat Bangladesh in a group game and crash out of the World Cup without playing the quarter-finals.

“If you said to me we would reach the final after we had been knocked out of the 2015 World Cup I wouldn’t have believed you,” said Morgan.

England will play New Zealand in the final on Sunday.
