Ahead of the World Cup final against New Zealand, England's Adil Rashid eulogized skipper Eoin Morgan, stating that he has full trust in the decision that Morgan makes.

"Me (Rashid) and him (Morgan) have that communication. We have that trust as well. If he senses a feel, we'll go by it. If I sense a feel, we'll go by it - what plans we want or how we should bowl. It's very easy like that. We're easygoing like that. I trust 100 per cent in the decisions he makes," ESPN Cricinfo quoted Rashid as saying.

Rashid also stated that Morgan knows his game inside out and has been with him through 'good and not so good times'.

"He knows my game now inside out. Been with him for four years, through good times and not so good times. He knows my strengths, what I'm capable of and vice-versa as well," he said.

England secured a spot in the final after they thrashed Australia by eight wickets in the second semi-final at Edgbaston. Rashid said that is a good feeling as they can now lift the trophy.

"At the beginning of the tournament I couldn't believe it. It's been a good journey in the World Cup. The ups, the downs as well. Some interesting times. We've played good cricket the past three games and now to be in a position where we can win it, it's a good feeling," Rashid said.

England are in their fourth World Cup final, while the Kiwis are in their second successive one, having lost to Australia in 2015 title clash.

The 50-over cricket World Cup is set to have a new champion when the two teams clash at Lord's.
