"Since then (the Australian game), we have played against quality bowling line-ups and overcome them", captain Eoin Morgan said.
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson insisted the fact his side lost to potential World Cup final opponents Australia and England earlier in the tournament would have no bearing on Sunday's showpiece match at Lord's.
