Media captionJonathan Agnew takes over tube announcements for the Cricket World Cup final.

TAB bookie Mark Stafford said the biggest bet they've had on the final so far is $10,000 for a Black Caps victory, which is paying $3.35.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson was at his wittiest best when he said it is the fight that matters rather than "breed of the dog" as his side geared up to take on favourites England in the summit clash of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 on Sunday.

There are also plenty of individual bets coming in, majority on skipper Kane Williamson.

He further said for all those kids back in New Zealand, their performance on Sunday will epitomize the fighting qualities and all hard work that has gone in over the years.

The final starts at 9.30pm and will screen on both Sky and free to air on Prime. "I think it's important to recognise the work that has been done and the foundations that have been laid".

"Coming into this tournament from the start, they were favourites and they've been playing really good cricket", added Williamson, whose side suffered a 119-run thrashing by the hosts in pool play. "That is probably the best way to say it".

LONDON: It was 27 years ago when England featured in their last World Cup final.

"Whether having had experience in a final or not is a good thing, any final you get the opportunity to play in is a really positive thing". "I think most teams expected scores to be a lot higher than what we have seen, but the reality of it is that they have been quite tough surfaces that have aged throughout the day, so trying to make those adjustments are really important".

"I guess anything's possible (smiling)".
