32.1 Jason Behrendorff to Eoin Morgan

FOUR! Jason Behrendorff to Eoin Morgan. Leg cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. The England captain fittingly hits the winning runs to take his team to a World Cup final on home soil. What a performance all round from the hosts and they were deserving winners. There might have been a few nerves around when the openers went out but Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy put all that to bed with a 124 run partnership. From then on it was plain sailing for the captain and Joe Root to knock off the remaining runs.The final is set then. New Zealand and England go head to head on Sunday to see who will be crowned champions for the first time ever. See you then.
