Cricket World Cup final to be shown free to air in UK

Cricket World Cup final to be shown free to air in UK

England have yet to win the World Cup and made the last of their three losing appearances in the final back in 1992, while five-time champions Australia have never lost a World Cup semi-final.

"He's outstanding player. He's been a key player for us for a long time now, not only with the ball in the first ten overs, but with the bat".

"We're not really bothered, before the World Cup we preferred to chase, so whoever plays the best cricket will go through", Morgan said at the toss.

England got through to the final after beating Australia by eight wickets in their semi-final at Edgbaston.

But could fatigue be an issue with only two bowlers sending down more deliveries thus far in the competition?

The host nation bounced back from a defeat against the very same Aussies to beat India and New Zealand, and continuing in that vein will be crucial at this juncture.

"I think World Cups are very special, they bring out the best in the best players, so I think that's why Australia have had a very rich history in World Cups".

Writing Australia off from any major competition is always a unsafe game and in true Aussie fashion they have proved to be one of the most consistent teams in the competition.

Earlier, Woakes and Adil Rashid each took three wickets apiece. It is an opportunity for us on Sunday, a huge one at that too.

"This journey we've been on with this group of boys now comes down to this semi-final".

"I did not miss many matches during the world cup, not the first half anyway", he said.

Australia head coach Justin Langer told reporters in Birmingham on Tuesday, "I'll tell you the truth: Peter will definitely play, 100 percent".

A shock loss to Sri Lanka preceded England again falling short against Australia but the triumphs over India and New Zealand showed their mettle as they lived up to their billing as pre-tournament favourites.

If the Australians win, the Black Caps get the chance to avenge a seven-wicket hammering handed out by their trans-Tasman rivals in Melbourne four years ago.

Morgan said England may look to play two spinners if the Edgbaston pitch looks like it may offer some turn.

Australia skipper Finch danced around the question of whether all-rounder Glenn Maxwell will be dropped following a run drought. "It was nice to see the ball moving around and put some pressure on them (India)", he said.

England, on the other hand, have gone with the same team that featured against New Zealand in their last league game.

"I think that is part and parcel of being the hosts, a little bit of home advantage".

The match will also be broadcast on Sky 1 as well as the network's dedicated Cricket World Cup channel and Sky Sports Main Event.

"But at the same time, we just want to reflect on the good things we did in this match and the things we want to improve on". Soon Jason Roy who was looking good for a century got out in a hilarious way.
