England beat New Zealand in dramatic circumstances on Sunday to lift the Cricket World Cup.

Alastair Cook's overriding feeling when watching England's Cricket World Cup final victory unfold was "disbelief".

The 34-year-old, who retired from international cricket in September last year, could not watch all of the action as he was on County Championship duty, but he enjoyed the thrilling conclusion with his Essex teammates.

Ben Stokes starred as England beat New Zealand on Sunday following a super over, and former Test captain Cook told PA: "It was amazing.

"The two opening batsmen...if they produce a really strong partnership it allows all of the other batters to play with freedom, no fear, and that's what I think Eoin Morgan has brought and it's brilliant to see.

"All departments are really strong, I think England have set the benchmark in ODI cricket for all the other nations to follow. I don't know if any nation can catch up with England at the moment."

He added: "I don't think I've ever seen England be so dominant against Australia.

"I'm really looking forward to the Ashes because I'm hoping they can continue that form in red-ball cricket and keep dominating Australia because we always like to see Australia lose on English soil!"
