New Zealand will face the winners of Thursday's second semi-final between Australia - the team that beat them in the 2015 final - and hosts England in Sunday's title match at Lord's.
With the memory still fresh in mind, Boult said, "Australia pumped us in 2015 final so it will be nice to get out for a game".
England has lost its last two clashes with Australia, including a warm-up game ahead of the World Cup, but before that Root & Co. had the edge with a series win down under and a 5-0 whitewash on home soil.
Stokes admitted that Thursday's game at Edgbaston was the biggest of his career and the semi-final against Australia a shot at "redemption" for a team blown away by Mitchell Starc at Lord's almost two weeks ago.
Root is one of eight players in the current England squad to have featured the last time they reached an worldwide final, three years ago, and he feels that knowhow could be vital for the hosts against Australia.

England will be on high after beating India and NZ in their last 2 matches.
The game was always running against them from that point, and while India did well to stay in the tie until the final few overs, it would've needed a monumental comeback to recover.
Anything can happen with those guys (Dhoni and Jadeja) on the crease.

Needing 31 from the last two overs Dhoni slashed the first ball of the 49th off Ferguson for six but was then run out two balls later by a stunning direct hit from Martin Guptill as he attempted to take two. "That was a big wicket for sure", he said.
India got off to a horrendous start while chasing a moderate target of 240 on the reserve day. Jadeja and Dhoni rebuilt the innings and added 116 runs.
It was a fine, if ultimately futile, effort from Jadeja, dismissed as a "bits and pieces player" by former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar, after he had also taken one for 34 with his left-arm spin and been brilliant in the field. India were bundled out on 221. Earlier, Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson helped New Zealand post 239 runs for the loss of eight wickets in a rain-hit innings after electing to bat.
For New Zealand either opponent is an intriguing prospect.

For the first time in global history, a team lost its first three batsmen all for 1 as India saw Sharma, Kohli then Rahul depart in the space of 10 balls and was marooned on 5-3 after 3.1 overs. We knew our best bowlers can be good enough for anyone on the day. The records speak for themselves.
