I was lucky enough to be at the Cricket World Cup Final on Sunday - it was as tense and stressful as everyone has said; completely engrossing ball by ball and totally mad and exuberant once we realised England had won.

Much has been reported about how England had changed its strategy towards the fifty overs game after its knock-out from the cup four years ago, about how they decided to play fast and aggressive cricket.

But the pitch at Lord's did not suit their newly-found batting approach. Instead they had to be patient and adapt their game to the slower conditions. And that flexibility is a great asset for any team or organisation that finds itself suddenly facing unexpected circumstances. Quick decisions need to be made but from a cool and considered approach,; the game would have been lost if England had continued to bat fast and furious. 

And so much credit has to go to the captain, Eoin Morgan who over the past four years has led from the front. He has been totally cool in front of the media, deflecting attention from his team, giving praise where praise was due and yet not afraid to admit when he got things wrong. On Sunday he looked as cool as a cucumber, even if - as Michael Vaughan says below - he was not!!
