Eoin Morgan praises 'outstanding' England bowlers after New Zealand win

Jun 07, 2017, 15:35

New Zealand were unchanged from the side that played in a frustrating no result washout against Australia in their first group match.

The Black Caps looked to have the edge mid-way through the second innings but Mark Wood's dismissal of Kane Williamson opened the floodgates, as the final seven wickets fell for 55 runs, with Liam Plunkett taking 4-55.

Kane Williamson then came to the fore and was well on his way to a century when he was bamboozled by a clever delivery from Mark Wood on 87 runs.

Williamson and Ross Taylor kept the runs flowing with a 95-run partnership, during which Williamson sailed past his fifty.

There will be no let up for England in their final group match against Australia at Edgbaston on Saturday either despite the fact the hosts effectively have nothing but bragging rights to play for.

In order to reach the semi-finals, New Zealand - who could lose captain Williamson to a slow over-rate suspension - must beat Bangladesh on Friday and hope England beat Australia the following day.

England beat New Zealand by 87 runs in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 and have become the first team to qualify for the semi-finals of the tournament.

James Neesham (180), Neil Broom (11) and Correy Anderson (10) tried hard to dig New Zealand out of the trouble but their contributions were not good enough. The number three made 64 from 65 deliveries before chopping the ball onto his stumps off Corey Anderson as captain Eoin Morgan departed cheaply between Hales and Root's errors of judgement.

Guptill said his role as an opener was to provide some stability and set up a platform to launch the New Zealand innings.

While three of England's top six made half-centuries and all-rounder Ben Stokes came within two runs, there was no end to opener Jason Roy's slump in form as he was dismissed for a 23-ball 13.

Tuesday's success means England will return to the Welsh capital as Group A winners for a last four clash against the as yet unknown Group B runners-up on June 14, in an event featuring the world's leading eight one-day worldwide (ODI) teams.

Williamson pleaded guilty and was fined 40 per cent of his match fee, while the rest of his team got 20 per cent fines. A lot depended on Adam Milne who had looked in good rhythm in the last game against Australia where he took two important wickets, however, against England, New Zealand brought him on very late.
