England reach ICC Champions Trophy semi-finals with victory over New Zealand

Jun 09, 2017, 09:12

In the last match against Australia, which was washed off due to rain, New Zealand had the upper hand.

New Zealand must beat Bangladesh in Cardiff on Friday (June 9) and hope England do them a favour to make it to the semi-finals.

The jury was out whether the hosts had enough runs after posting a patchy 310 all out thanks to half-centuries from Joe Root (64), Jos Buttler (61no) and Alex Hales (56).

Wood returned at the 30-over stage of the run chase in Cardiff to take the critical wicket of Kane Williamson (87).

England play Australia in their final group game at Edgbaston on Saturday, knowing they could knock the Aussies out of the event.

Victory in this match would see England into the semi-finals, with New Zealand looking to kickstart their campaign in a 50-over tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day worldwide sides after a rain-induced no result in their opening clash with Australia.

Both Williamson and Taylor appeared unhappy with the behaviour of the pitch, Taylor being hit on the helmet grille by a ball that leapt off a length, but it was trepidation about what the ball might do as much as what it actually did that stymied their efforts.

However, the moment Williamson was caught behind off a snorter from Mark Wood, the Kiwi innings fell apart.

"We know that, and I think other teams know that as well".

Liam Plunkett bowled emerged as the leader of the pack as he gobbled up four wickets and broke the back of the Kiwis batting order.

New Zealand Playing XI: Martin Guptill, Luke Ronchi (w), Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Neil Broom, James Neesham, Corey Anderson, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Tim Southee, Trent Boult.

"They've got some good pace bowlers, but we'll try and be aggressive with the bat as well". "They seem to produce limited-overs cricketers at will", the former Ireland worldwide added. "But, yeah, I guess those things happen and you let them go and move on".

When asked about his team's mindset ahead of the game, Mortaza said, "It's our focus to win every match and we play at our best".
