England captain Eoin Morgan calls World Cup final result 'unfair'

Morgan, 32, led England to their first Cricket World Cup title earlier this month after a dramatic win over New Zealand in the final.

The showpiece at Lord's went down to a super over, after Ben Stokes had inadvertently deflected Martin Guptill's throw out for a boundary to keep England's chances of victory alive. Obviously, it would have been very hard to bear the defeat.' "There was no such moment in the match that we say 'yes we deserve to win".

"Next week I'm going away with my wife to get away from the game, in a really nice way". Prior to the latest edition, England had made it to four World Cup finals and had lost all. "Madness. I should be cheery about it, shouldn't I?", he said.

And Morgan conceded he has still not quite been able to make sense of the triumph, and is slightly troubled by winning in such a manner. Even the Super Over which followed thereafter ended in a tie with both teams scoring 15 runs apiece.

England were erroneously given an extra run when umpires Marais Erasmus and Kumar Dharmasena awarded the eventual winners six overthrows after failing to spot that Stokes and Adil Rashid had not crossed for a second run. "It would be more hard to lose, of course", Morgan added. Eoin also revealed that he spoke to the New Zealand Skipper over the last couple of days on numerous occasions and said that neither of them has come up with a rational explanation regarding the results of the match. "Like me, he can't get his head around everything", he said.

Soggy setup ahead, heat relief on the way
Lower pressure across the region has been kicking up more cloud coverage and thunderstorms throughout the day. Through the rest of the afternoon heat continues with temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s.

Morgan said he felt slightly better after watching the game again and noting that were also decisions that had gone the New Zealanders' way.

"I actually feel more comfortable about it having watched all of the game now".

The 32-year-old Dubliner was the star attraction at the tournament's first draft in London on Friday, when more than 100 global and domestic players were selected for the Amsterdam Knights, Belfast Titans, Dublin Chiefs, Edinburgh Rocks, Glasgow Giants and Rotterdam Rhinos.

"By a long way". I don't think it's easier to be a victor.
