After a sensational 7 wicket win over New Zealand in the fourth ODI at Nottingham, England skipper Eoin Morgan admitted that he is proud of the way England are performing and that their approach is more important than the final result. He also thanked his openers for setting the tone for the chase.

Morgan said I think the style with which we play is important than the result in the next game. The way we are playing, it’s very encouraging at the moment. We will be focussed on the process and will be geared up to play against a champion side like New Zealand. It was a reasonable effort from us, we struggled to take wickets in the middle overs though. If you can’t get the experienced players out, you will always struggle. We always thought something close to 340 will be a good total for us. Finn and Wood bowled really well. It was an incredible run-chase.  At the halfway, we thought it’s a big total. Full credit to the boys. Hales and Roy came out and played unbelievably. The rain probably worked in our favour. The openers set the tone for us.

On the other hand, McCullum said that due to England’s win the series now gets more exciting and is looking forward for the final game. He also congratulated Steve Davies, who officiated in his last match as an umpire. We thought that they would have to play really well if they had to achieve this, but the way Morgan and Root batted was brilliant. We were outplayed. We weren’t as accurate as we should have been. Credit to England, chasing 350 is very difficult and to do it 2-1 down in the series was a great achievement. We came over here to try and win the series. We can still do that in the last game. Both countries have been toe-to-toe with each other and it’s only right that it will be decided in the final game. I would like to congratulate him (Steve Davis) on a tremendous career. He has obviously been a great custodian, an ambassador of the game and we wish him well on his retirement, he said.
