England and New Zealand captains react to epic World Cup final

SHOWS: LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (JULY 14, 2019) (ICC - NO RESALES) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND CAPTAIN, EOIN MORGAN, SAYING: "To me and to the team and to everybody who's been involved for the past four years it means absolutely everything.

The planning, the hard work, the dedication, the commitment and the little bit of luck today really did get us over the line.

It's been an absolutely incredible journey.

To everybody around the country and around the world who has followed us and supported us thank you so much.

It's been phenomenal right from the very beginning of the tournament all the way through regardless of our performance people believed because we believed and I'm very thankful for that and everybody is as well." 2.

WHITE FLASH 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NEW ZEALAND CAPTAIN, KANE WILLIAMSON, SAYING: "Yes, obviously just gutted.

The guys put in a huge amount of work to get this opportunity to come here and play in another World Cup final and to pretty much do all you could and still not perhaps get across the line with some small margins and I think throughout this whole campaign in a lot of my press conferences I've spoken about uncontrollables and there were a couple today that were pretty hard to swallow but once again take nothing away from England's campaign, not just this match but throughout.

All the cricket that they've played they're deserved winners.

I think if either side walking away with the title today probably feels fortunate having it sort of go down to obviously a tie after regular time and I think another one wasn't it after six more balls so yes one of those things, eh?" STORY: England captain Eoin Morgan said winning the World Cup for the first time by beating New Zealand in an extraordinary final at Lord's on Sunday (July 14) was a fitting reward for years of hard work by his players.

England, eliminated at the group stage after a dismal performance in the World Cup four years ago, won by virtue of hitting more boundaries after the match, and a Super Over, both ended in ties.

New Zealand captain, Kane Williamson, said the defeat was "gutting" but congratulated England after winning by the finest of margins.
