"No, sir. They romped into it by playing some of the most exhilarating one-day cricket this world has seen", wrote Telegraph's Scyld Berry.
Joe Root (R) and Eoin Morgan of England celebrate victory during the Semi-Final match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between Australia and England at Edgbaston on July 11, 2019 in Birmingham.
"I'd be lying if I said we weren't a bit overawed by the change of scenery", said Taylor as he looked back to New Zealand's first and only match on Australian soil in that tournament.
Pat Cummins can not wait to return to Edgbaston and believes Australia will want revenge in the Ashes opener after their Cricket World Cup exit at England's hands.
"It will be a matter of the same again trying to produce everything that we can performance-wise but - enjoy the day". He dismissed Jonny Bairstow, taking his wickets tally for this World Cup to 27.
Jason Roy has been the architect behind England's comeback and gives the team the swagger which has become synonymous to England's brand of cricket over the last three-four years.
By getting to the final for the fourth time, England have ensured the match will be screened on free-to-air TV in Britain - the first time this has happened since the 2005 Ashes series on home soil - and Morgan feels their achievement has made the sport "very cool".
