LONDON: It was 27 years ago when England featured in their last World Cup final.

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen, sitting alongside Read, said: "Congratulations on what's been a great tournament and the opportunity in the final".

"Any experience that you have is an opportunity to learn and sometimes tough experiences, being on the wrong side of results, can sometimes slap you in the face and give you a glaring lesson and if you ignore that, I don't think that is a positive thing".

England and New Zealand will clash at Lord's on Sunday in a quest to win their first ever World Cup title. "I think it's important to recognise the work that has been done and the foundations that have been laid". "There's all different bits of pressure on anybody, whether you are favourites or not". Coming into this tournament from the start, they were favourites and they've been playing really good cricket.

"We are quite keen on winning as well", he said with a deadpan expression.

One enduring quality of Williamson's batting and his captaincy is an ability to maintain the same level-headed demeanour regardless of the game situation. I guess when you take yourself back to that point in time, it feels like a long way away and you make a few small steps forward and you work pretty hard together as a group and next thing you might find yourself here, Williamson said.

The pitch sported a hint of green which, both captains agreed on Saturday, would please the seam bowlers.

By the time play started 11:45 (SA time) after a short delay due to the wet weather, there didn't seem to be an empty seat in the house. "Usually, it's a fairly fair surface here but, at the same time, one that guys need to adapt quickly to, like any other surface we have seen in the World Cup".
