England 95 for 4 (Flintoff 47*, Streak 4-21) beat Zimbabwe 92 (Gough 4-26) by six wickets
On Darren Gough (4 for 26): Throughout the tournament he has bowled well and been an invaluable member of the squad. Throughout the one-dayers this summer he has been a lynchpin in the team.
On the pitch: If the game finishes so early in front of a big crowd you might obviously think it is not a great wicket. [But] it was definitely very sporting - I wouldn't have minded being a bowler out there. Jimmy struggled to control the swing, because it was doing so much.
On the chase: It was always going to be a tricky little total, and the way Heath Streak bowled put us under pressure. But Flintoff did really well, in his new role batting up the order from No. 7. This was the perfect opportunity for him to go out and play the way he did and settle our nerves from 25 for 4. We had to win, because the pressure was on to get to the final. I am pretty pleased with the way we bowled and fielded - and the way Freddie batted was outstanding.
On the pitch: It was not a good one-day wicket. There was too much emphasis on the toss. There was a lot of moisture out there and early movement. It was tough even for their [England's] players who are used to swing and seam bowling. We don't have a lot of experience to call on.
On retirement: I've no immediate plans to go anywhere. I'm still enjoying my cricket. You're always up against it as Zimbabwe. Not much has changed.
On his team: We have a very young side, and the guys have to learn a lot from this tour. It's tough but it's also very rewarding to see the youngsters coming through. I hope they can go away and have a bit of a break and be better players next time they come and play in these conditions.
