(Go Down)
Eoin Morgan urged England “ not to shy away” from the pressure of the World Cup final after they stormed into the showpiece with an eight -wicket thrashing of champions Australia at Edgbaston on Thursday .
Morgan ’ s side will face New Zealand at Lord’ s on Sunday , with both sides bidding to win the title for the first time.

“ I think Sunday’ s not a day to shy away from , it’ s a day to look forward to , much like today, ” England captain Morgan said .

“ We have created the opportunity to play in a World Cup final .

It will be a matter of the same again , trying to produce everything that we can performance -wise .”
England hammered New Zealand by 119 runs in a group stage match.

But having seen the Black Caps reduce India to 5-3 before going to achieve a surprise 18 -run semi-final win on Wednesday, Morgan was taking nothing for granted against a side who will be appearing in their second successive World Cup final .

“ They bowled extremely well and took their opportunities .

They will be a difficult side to beat on Sunday , so we are looking forward to it ,” he said.

By getting to the final , England have assured the match will be screened on free -to -air television in Britain — the first time this has happened for one of their major home fixtures since the 2005 Ashes series.
“ That’ s very cool, ” said Morgan . “

Particularly given the 2005 Ashes for me was sort of the day cricket became cool. It ’ s really good for the game and it’ s the game I love .”

England have risen to the top of the one -day international rankings since a woeful first-round exit at the last World Cup four years ago and Thursday ’ s success was their first win in a knockout match at the tournament since 1992, when they made the last of their three losing appearances in the final .

Morgan , asked about the cynicism surrounding England ’ s knockout prospects , replied : “ I think we’re quite cynical people , who never quite give people credit when it’ s due .
“ We grow up around it. It is the way we are and we sometimes enjoy it too much .
“ I think we have learnt to enjoy ourselves , particularly days like this , even if they don’t go well.
“ If you had offered us the position to play in a final the day after we were knocked out of 2015 World Cup, I would have laughed at you .”
– ‘It ’ s awesome ’ –
England were dominant from the start at Edgbaston against Australia , who had never lost any of their previous seven World Cup semi-finals.

Despite losing the toss, England reduced Australia to 14 -3, with man-of -the -match Chris Woakes striking two early blows on his way to a return of 3 -20 .

Although Australia recovered to 223 all out , it never looked like being enough, especially when England opener Jason Roy was blazing his way to 85 as the holders were denied an early wicket .

Morgan finished on 49 not out and hit the winning runs as England won with a mammoth 107 balls to spare .

But he was in no doubt an attack led by paceman Woakes, well supported by fast bowler Jofra Archer and with leg-spinner Adil Rashid taking three wickets , had laid the foundation for victory.

“ We had a bit of a day out which , it ’s cool when it happens like that. Particularly when the bowlers bowl like that, it is awesome , ” he said .

Woakes’ s first ball of the match was driven for four by David Warner but the seamer had the last laugh , dismissing the left -hander for nine.

“ Semi -finals are usually nervy and often tight so to win the way we did was incredible, ” said Woakes.
“ Obviously my first ball I ’d like to have back.

But other than that I hit my straps well.

“ To bowl them out for the total that we did was incredible. ”
