Channel 4 to show free-to-air coverage of World Cup final

Perry takes seven wickets as Australia thrash England

Plunkett made his World Cup debut in 2007 but believes this was the first time they entered the tournament as genuine title contenders.

"Is this the most important game I've played?"

"I reckon England can win well, we are the stronger side when you look at the two teams, as simple as that".

Kane Williamson's side reached a second straight final with a dramatic 18-run win over favourites India at the Old Trafford in Manchester this morning.

Root and his team-mates also triumphed the last time they met Australia at the Birmingham venue, winning by 40 runs (DLS) in the Champions Trophy two years ago. They then repeated the trick in 1999, fighting back from a defeat to Pakistan to smash them in a one-sided final at Lord's.

Openers Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy are in the form of their lives and Morgan would love a fifth consecutive century stand from them in the final against New Zealand.

He has taken wickets in every game, including the crucial scalps of Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle and Quinton de Kock. It was an overhang into the Lord's game and then when we came here we managed to produce something similar to the cricket we have been playing over the last four years and that was really encouraging.

Turbulence injures dozens on Air Canada flight to Australia
The airline is now working to provide emergency accommodation to those affected and arrange an alternative flight to Sydney. Air Canada Flight 33 was two hours west of Hawaii when it encountered unexpected severe turbulence over the Pacific Ocean.

And the door was left open for Australia to take on England on a belter of a pitch in Edgbaston. "The amount of good faith and goodwill going around is fantastic, so we sense the support that's with us, but also the opportunity as well". We got off to a flyer chasing a relatively small total and that's probably the difference.

"We like to be positive but not reckless and we went away from our positive brand of cricket and went into our shell a little bit", he said.

"Totally outplayed today, the way they had us 27 for three after 10 overs set the tone", Finch said after Australia's first loss in a World Cup semi-final. Keeping their current form in mind, it will be hard to say which team will have the upper hand, although Australia could have the last laugh.

If Eoin Morgan wins the toss and bats first, it could be an ever so slightly less daunting semi-final for the home fans.

Australian duo David Warner and Aaron Finch sit second and fourth respectively for runs scored in the tournament, while Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow have been similarly influential in England's progress to the semi-finals.

But he went on to make 77 and share a World Cup record seventh-wicket partnership of 116 with veteran wicketkeeper MS Dhoni, who made 50 in support. They tried to replicate the angle of a couple of Australia bowlers - Mitchell Starc, in particular - would pose. We knew our best bowlers can be good enough for anyone on the day.

New Zealand swelled an overnight score of 211 for five, held over to Wednesday morning because of persistent rain on Tuesday afternoon, to 239 for eight, Ross Taylor top-scoring with 74 from 90 balls.
