Hosts England face New Zealand in the finals of the World Cup 2019 at Lord's on Sunday. Both sides will be eyeing their first title, and needless to say the pressure on both sides will be immense. 

Both England and the Black Caps have been consistent in the event, and have some of the most dangerous players. While the Kiwis have the best bowling line-up in the competition, England have an array of big hitters who can take the game away with the bat. 

However, in a pressure game, the onus will definitely be on the two skippers, and how they lead their respective teams in the pressure game. Eoin Morgan and Kane Williamson both have the opportunity to go down history books by becoming the first skipper from their respective nations to win the World title. The two players have played a huge role in their team's progress in the last four years, and will be eager to end with the ultimate trophy. 

Morgan took over the helm of England after his side were ousted from the first round in 2015, and since then, England have become world beaters. He has also been in good nick with the bat in this phase, contributing when his team has needed his services. 

Williamson, on the other hand, has impressed with his calm and collected leadership that has gone hand in hand with his mature batting. With two hundred and two fifties in eight innings in the World Cup, Williamson now has close to 550 runs, and will be eager to score big in the final as well. 

However, more than their personal performances, the way the two handle their players in pressure situations will define the game. Right from field placements to bowling changes to managing cricketers in tense moments, Morgan and Williamson will have a huge hand to play. The skipper who rises above the pressure, then, is likely to emerge the hero.
