During the group stage, a 64-run defeat to Australia and few other losses almost knocked the hosts out of the tournament, before defeating New Zealand and India.

Roy said, "We didn't get too down or upset. It gave us a good kick and pushed us to actually bring out the best in ourselves I think, and that stands us in good stead for the final."

He further added, "We're in a very good place with our cricket, and like we've shown in the last few games, we're doing pretty well. Do the right things tomorrow from the start, and hopefully we'll get the benefits."

"We've just got to go out and perform. It's nothing to do with the status. We just want to win the World Cup for the nation and inspire the next generation," stated Roy.
