Eoin Morgan, the winning captain speaks!
"Absolutely delight. I would like to thank the fans who've come out, our fans have been exemplery. Having beaten India on this ground, we would have come in with similar confidence. We talked about wanting to get better from game to game and we wanted to take control from ball one. Extremely happy for Woakes; he is a cool customer and has been one of the best bowlers in the world in the last year. The guys coming after that really backed him up well. Roy and Jonny at the top of the order are really imposing when they get themselves in. They set the tone for us. I was six in 1992, I don't remember it, but I have seen a lot of it. It is an opportunity for us on Sunday, a huge one at that too. It is a massive leap from where we were in 2015. Everyone in that dressing room must take a lot of credit for that."
"I was three years old in 1992, it was a while ago. We have one game to go, hopefully, we will go all the way. Coming into the World Cup as favourites, it was important for us to reach the knockout stages. It's an incredible feeling to win the semi-final against Australia at the best ground in the world," said Chris Woakes.
