And now they'll face off in the big final.

Amid a catalogue of World Cup failures, the worst was arguably four years ago, when they were dumped out in the first round.

'The style in which you play, the attitude, the optimism, the fulfillment, the commitment, all these silly words.

Jonathan Agnew takes over tube announcements for the Cricket World Cup final. Once again it comes down to the pragmatic question: How are we going to win the game? We had different duties when we turned up. "But at the same time as we know in this game nothing promises, so it does come down to putting a performance on the board that gives us the best opportunity to win", he said. "One of those is tomorrow, and we're excited about it".

Even though they began the tournament as the number-one ranked side, England have not had a straightforward passage to the final.

Back-to-back group-stage defeats by Sri Lanka and Australia left them on the verge of being eliminated.

New Zealand defeated India by 18 runs in a nail-biting encounter while England got the better of Australia easily, winning the match by eight wickets.

"We've gone from strength to strength since the India game", said Ireland-born batsman Morgan.

Talking about his team, Stead said, "There are a lot of positives but there is a lot of fight and steeliness in the way we have played. It's great because it means we go into the final feeling quietly confident".

"We were in a different part of the world on a different surface against a different opposition, and both sides are very different from four years ago, so it's kind of hard to compare those times", he told reporters on Saturday.

Williamson said New Zealand would look to put up a fighting performance to give them the best possible opportunity to come out on top of England. "(Smiling) Underdogs? Look, we are really looking forward to the occasion and, like I say, the end point and the result, there's a lot of time between now and that point", said Williamson in a more serious tone. Coming into this tournament from the start, they were favourites and they've been playing really good cricket.

"But whatever dog we are, it's just important that we focus on the cricket that we want to play".
