The former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan says New Zealand has embraced the World Cup far more than co-hosts Australia.
Vaughan is backing the Black Caps to beat their trans-Tasman rivals in tomorrow's final in Melbourne.
About 90 thousand fans are expected to pack the Melbourne Cricket Ground for the game, with the majority being Australian supporters.
But Vaughan says it's been the New Zealand fans that have impressed him the most.
"I think the Aussie public are now obviously involved with the fact the team has made the final," he says.
"I think it's just been that the tournament has been captured more in New Zealand than it has over there."
