Over 50. 3 runs. Bowler: Jofra Archer. New Zealand: 8-241(rr 4.82)
49.6
.
Jofra Archer to Mitchell Santner. Slower ball short, down leg side ducked Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Buttler. So England have been set 242 to win the World Cup. It won't be a total that will scare them, but it won't be an easy one to get with this being a major final. New Zealand had plenty of starts, but no one went on to make a big contribution, which is the disappointment for them in this innings. All the England bowlers chipped in, and they were once again absolutely electric in the field. It should be a tense and drama-filled chase to come. Early wickets will make it very interesting.

OUT! Bowled. Jofra Archer to Matt Henry. Full toss, off stump on the front foot driving, missed to. Archer goes fast, and it does Henry for pace. A wild swing of the bat, but it is through him to peg back the off stump. Top death bowling.

FOUR! Chris Woakes to Matt Henry. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump Deep in crease Slog, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Good stuff from Henry. He sets himself early, was expecting the slow one, and hacked it over the legside for four.

APPEAL! Chris Woakes to Tom Latham. Length ball, down leg side moves in front flick, hit pad to short leg for 1 run, shy attempt by Woakes, appeal made for L.B.W. Latham steps across the stumps, and cannot make a connection on the heave. The ball smacks into the pad, but it was pitching outside leg stump. Good call from the umpire. Woakes should've got Latham with the run out, though. Three stumps to aim at, but misses with the throw.

OUT! Caught (Sub). Chris Woakes to Colin de Grandhomme. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to mid off. He struggled throughout, and finally de Grandhomme departs. Woakes rolls his fingers across this one, and that causes the Kiwi to play his shot too early. Closed bat face, and it pops up off the edge to mid off. Soft dismissal.

OUT! Caught. Liam Plunkett to Jimmy Neesham. Length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, mis-timed to mid on, by Root. Oh dear, what has Neesham done? Perhaps got a little excited from that previous boundary, and thought he could take Plunkett on. A mistake this time, though, as he chips the ball softly into mid on's hands. That's a tame way to go.

OUT! L.B.W. Mark Wood to Ross Taylor. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. Up goes the finger, and New Zealand have no reviews left! England turn the screw once more. Wood is brought back into the attack, and strikes first ball. Nipped back down the slope, and it pinned Taylor on the front pad. The line looked good, but a big question to whether it was bouncing over the top or not. The hosts won't care. That's a massive wicket.

OUT! Caught. Liam Plunkett to Kane Williamson. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Plunkett, as he so often is, is the man to provide the breakthrough for England. It's a huge scalp, as the New Zealand skipper is the man to depart. A cross seam delivery, but it moves away off the pitch, surprisingly. Williamson wafts the bat out, and gets a thin tickle on it through to the keeper. Originally given not out, but an instant review from England, and the replays are very clear.

New Zealand have won the toss in London and elected to bat first. The hosts will be favourites going into the game today, but everything goes out of the window when it comes to a major final, and anything can happen. Whatever occurs, we will see a new team crowned champions, which is always exciting to see as a cricket fan. It is going to be an amazing occasion, so just sit back and enjoy.

OUT! Caught (Sub). Lockie Ferguson to Jos Buttler. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep point. A twist! Buttler throws the bat at this again, and totally miscues. He slices out to deep point, where Tim Southee is positioned to take the catch. It won't be easy for a new batsman. It is getting very nervy!

OUT! Caught. Jimmy Neesham to Eoin Morgan. Short, off stump on the back foot cutting, in the air uncontrolled to deep point, by Ferguson. What a take in the deep from Ferguson! England are beginning to crumble. Neesham strikes with his first delivery. It isn't one of his best. Very short, very wide, and the England captain slashes it out to deep point. Ferguson sprints in, dives forward, and snaps it up inches from the turf.

NEW BALL. APPEAL! Trent Boult to Jason Roy. In-swinging length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Wow. What an incredible start that is. A big hooping in-ducker back into Roy, and it thumps into the front pad. Screams from New Zealand, but a shake of the head from the umpire. Review taken, and it is extremely close. Umpire's call on hitting the stumps. A close shave for the opener.
