Prime to show World Cup final

Prime to show World Cup final”

England's recent record in 50-over fixtures at Edgbaston is impeccable - they have won their last 10 games there, including inflicting India's only defeat of the group phase.

But with India in sight of an incredible win, left-hander Jadeja's 59-ball innings, featuring four fours and four sixes, ended when he skyed Boult to New Zealand captain Kane Williamson.

Host broadcaster Sky has said it will allow the final to be shown on free-to-air television in Britain - but only if England are involved in the showpiece match.

"But two quality sides are going to play, we'll be watching with interest".

It's a clash of the Goliaths in the 2019 Cricket World Cup, as England and Australia go face-to-face.

That brought Dhoni and Jadeja together and they almost saw India home in an improbably nerve-racking finish in Manchester. Genuinely that catch (of Jadeja) and for (Martin) Guptill to run out Dhoni like that, it was nice to see.

Root is one of eight players in the current England squad to have featured the last time they reached an worldwide final, three years ago, and he feels that knowhow could be vital for the hosts against Australia.

"It turned out to be a very close game but nice to come out on the right side".

Jadeja, batting for the first time in the tournament, put on a World Cup record 116 for the seventh wicket alongside the more subdued Dhoni, who was content to defer the big-hitting responsibilities to his junior partner.

India found themselves three wickets down with just five runs on the board at the start of their run chase. The Kiwi bowlers rattled the top-order of India.

Two-time world champions India lost key batsmen Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul for just one run each.

Sharma, the Cricket World Cup's top run-scorer with 648, edged Matt Henry behind off the fourth ball of his innings.

It was a fine, if ultimately futile, effort from Jadeja, dismissed as a "bits and pieces player" by former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar, after he had also taken one for 34 with his left-arm spin and been brilliant in the field.

"If we can combat that and make a good start, we'll give ourselves a better chance of either closing a total down or setting a big one which is hard to chase".

"If we do the things well that we know we can do, especially with the ball, I think we're good enough to beat anyone on the day", he said.

"We're always trying to get sides two or three down inside that first 10 overs".
