England v New Zealand. Cricket World Cup Final
 
 
Sounds great doesnít it and as an Anglophile Kiwi I canít really lose but I am supporting the Blackcaps. My wife full on England. I have a ticket for the Final and just canít wait. What an occasion itís going to be.

EnglandĒs record in ODI World Cup,games at Lords is poor so it gives me some confidence. Martin Guptill needs to come to the fore in the biggest game (since the last World Cup Final!) of his life.

world cup win and the ashes, could be the greatest English cricket summer of all time. what's people's thoughts on roy/Barstow opening the batting for the ashes? I know test cricket is a far different skill but with the lack of obvious test quality openers at the moment it could be the way to go, Barstow keeping wicket would give us room for another middle order batsman.

Not sure Roy can handle the red ball game. I think Bairstow should make number 3 his own, and give Foakes the gloves, and ask him to bat 7. Root 4, Buttler 5, Stokes 6

Dom Sibley is a good shout for opening too and Woakes could easily come in for Broad

thoughts on roy/Barstow opening the batting for the ashes?

Michael Vaughan on TMS said exactly this yesterday as he said they clearly have an understanding and work well together and as for risk with the red ball is it any different to any other pair we may pick to open. Both options have risks.

So why not

Roy will rise to the challenge. Top top class.

I think the situation with Broad not playing for Notts probably stems from him being contracted to England and he is only released for a limited amount of County games.

With his past record of injury these will be further restricted.Same with Anderson at Lancs.

Anderson has played all the games for lancs this season, ironically except the last as he picked up a injury. would be strange to expect broad to play in the first test without any games since last year. after this week there's no more county championship games until after the ashes start I think. unless her using the t20 to warm up.

There's no point England getting to the Final if they don't win it.

It's strange to see England in the ODI format being so good on a consistent basis. With Roy back in the team and Plunkett instead of Ali, they look very well balanced. England has the game to destroy New Zealand.

That said, it is New Zealand and their attitude is brilliant. They've also got some proper players in their team (Williamson, Taylor, Guptill, Boult, Lockie). They're also a proper team too.

It's great that the game is on Channel 4. Cricket has been hidden away on Sky for way too long now.

New Zealand will think the same especially having lost the Final in 2015. They have a great team but not necessarily coming into the final on top form. Still it will be a close game.

I would be very reluctant to open with Roy, it messed Bairstows game up in both formats to the point he had to completely revamp his game.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Broad and Anderson rested a lot this summer with the bowling attack we have found and Stokes inside the top 6.

With the top 3 being fairly unknown you would imagine we lengthen the batting line up, that means your probably picking 3 quick bowlers between, Jimmy, Broad, Woakes, Wood, Archer and Curran

Just been on sky sports news that fans are queuing up at Lords from 0700 for returned tickets. The office opens at 1200 and they have been told they have a very decent chance of getting one face value[^]

I live down south and would probably have joined them if I'd known.

That said plenty trying to cash in as they go for £1000-£3500 on some sites. Let's be honest they are gonna be stuck with those so probably be some empty seats.

Definitely think Roy/Burns will be the opening pair at the beginning of the Ashes. Imo Woakes will play and bat at 7/8 if not we have a long tail with Ali at 7. Anderson and Broad (if fit) with start which means Archer/Wood fighting for the last place. A mate whoís in the know (little) reckons Broad could still miss out even if fit.

What so the ICC wanted a greentopper for the final? I think not. The pitch is not great for the final - the ICC (ie the bcc) like bat to dominate, lots of sixes etc not nip and tuck. Not one for the casual fan.

Root need to have a good look at himself. He got himself out again.

These two are key. Shades of the new Zealand semi, butler and stokes in the dohni/jadaja role. Stokes fancies Henry a bit.

Brilliant game of cricket from both sides. The pitch changed throughout and the bowlers exploited the conditions superbly. The batsmen did well to post the scores they did too.

An essentially one ball game was a fitting end to a brilliant festival of cricket. You'll never forget that game [^]

Fantastic match with some great performances on both sides.

I think England had the rub of the green today but most teams who win a final do.

Couple of questions though:

What is the reason for the ďumpireís callĒ rule? Iím thinking if Royís first ball which ball tracking showed the ball was clipping the stumps. Is this to account for a margin of error in the tracking system?

Iíve not heard why England won if New Zealand got the same number of runs. Was it because:
We batted first
We beat them in the group, or
We finished above them in the table?

The bizzare 6 was unfortunate: I donít think Stokes could be blamed in any way, but it would be tough to swallow if I were a Kiwi.

Well that is the nearest in cricketing I have seen to Basle and Steaua. Truly incredible.

Those poor Kiwis must be as sick as sick can be. Tied after 50 overs, tied in the super over and lose it on boundaries hit. Then to cap it all they have to sit and watch Stokes after hitting that infamous extra 4 as he was diving for the crease, collect man of the match (which he deserved) [:D] [:D]

I played cricket for 35 years and have watched it for nearly 50 years.

Never witnessed anything like that today and never will again ... and in a World Cup Final!

It will always be a "where were you" day for anyone with even a remote interest in the great game.

Well done England but massive respect for New Zealand. They have always played the game in the right spirit, are the epitome of a team and have had a magnificent tournament. Finalists in the last two world cup finals.

Bear in mind the male population of NZ is 2 million and they beat India in the semi-finals (600 million) and effectively tied with England (30 million). Talk about punching above your weight!

Cricket was the winner today and that is something the needs to be harnessed otherwise our National Summer sport will become a minority sport.

Before today it was 14 years ago since an England match was last shown live on terrestrial TV ... the BBC would rather waste their money paying outrageous salaries to over rated employees.

Well done England and The Kiwis [^]

That's a very valid point Prioryman, but cricket is literally surviving on tv revenue so I can't see things changing.

I would hope however that today will be a template for the future whereby all finals of major events will be on free to air tv regardless of who has the rights.

If we want to invest in the health of future generations then inspiring events like today can only help raise participation numbers.

Couldnít bring myself to post last night so gutted was I after the game but now feel compensated for having witnessed one of sports greatest moments and theatre. Have just arrived at work for the day - that was emotionally exhausting! Heart was leaping out of my chest in the final over, and agreed that it was just very bizarre how it even got that far with the overthrow craziness. You can't begrudge it though really, because whilst we played a hell of a game the other day and today I wouldn't have said that on general form that the blackcaps are the best team in the world and deserve to win a world cup! More like eternal scrappers who never say die

Well done England.

The single and best way to advertise cricket.

What on earth were Ch4 thinking of turning it off for the F1? The f**king F1!!

I don't think we will ever see anything like that again, especially in a final.

All squared after 300 balls each. Then all square after another 6 balls each, and for it to come down to boundaries!

Simply incredible.

Throughout the whole tournament I felt like we definitely deserved it, especially with the way we played. But full credit to NZ. They just don't know when to say no.

People are saying it's the greatest ever, when it was mostly a dour grind of a contest with all batsmen struggling with the lifeless pitch and slow outfield.
It was an oddity as tied games are rare and bizarre things happened near the end. The Super Over was a pretty naff way to milk 'entertainment' at the expense of players' dignity. A really cruel way to lose as well. You could have applied the 'most boundaries' rule at the end of normal play. Or just record it as a tie, end of, as you would in a test match.

"Before the competition started the opinion was that it would be a run fest with games regularly featuring teams scoring 350nplus and spinners dominating games."

For my money, the low scoring games are more exciting, tense and dramatic than the high scoring matches, so long as they're competitive.

I think the WC has been better for being a fair contest between bat and ball, rather than the high scoring turkey shoot that was anticipated.

Possibly a couple of high scoring matches would have been good for the variety of the tournament.

I was unsure why we won: I had thought of 3 possible reasons, none of which were "most boundaries". Still, if that's what the rules say before the match, it's objective and fair, even if its a bit odd.

if you look at other ways of deciding the game after the super over, the match result, the higher league placing all favour England, the exception being fewer wickets down. personally i think after the super over the group result might have been fairer.
anyway a great tournament and a great advert for the game.

ďthe exception being fewer wickets down.Ē

I think that would be a better way to do it, but if that rule is in place before the match, it changes the match.

England lost a couple of suicide run outs at the end: would they have gone for those if they knew wickets could count?

LikewiseNew Zealand lost 3 wickets in the last 19 balls. Would they be as aggressive and get as many runs if they know wickets count?
