"Just wanna wish you the best of luck for tomorrow's match. We are behind you, bring it home," former England cricketer Andrew Strauss said.

"Many congratulations. Just got back from Edgbaston, it was truly special. Our journey has been incredible in the white-ball format," Nasser Hussain says in the video.

"As only Englishman to have played in all three losing finals, I know the pain of losing. You have played incredibly well in the tournament. Best of luck for tomorrow," former England cricketer Graham Gooch said.

There were many other cricketers who extended their wishes to England's cricket team. Andrew Flintoff, Nick Knight, Marcus Trescothick, David Gower all wished the team best of luck for the final.
