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

Morgan is backing England to seal their place in the semi-finals

England and New Zealand Nets Sessions

England's 118 for two was soon transformed into 134 for three when captain Eoin Morgan was caught behind chasing a wide ball from left-armer Anderson.

Buttler, known for playing shots in a 360-degree arc, hasn't been in prime form this year, evidenced by the fact that he had composed just 145 runs in 10 matches before their fixture against New Zealand.

One of Buttler's most outrageous strokes came in the 46th over.

Besides, Trent Boult (1/56) and Mitchell Santner (1/54) picked up a wicket each for New Zealand.

England have now assured themselves of a return to Cardiff for a June 14 semi-final against the runners-up in Group B, regardless of the result of their final pool match against arch-rivals Australia at Edgbaston on Saturday.

New Zealand was dismissed for 223 in 44.3 overs, led by captain Kane Williamson's 87, and can still qualify for the last four but now need a favour from England against Australia.


For both sides the innings has tended to fall away following the exit of their star batsman, with New Zealand losing their last eight wickets for 65 against England following Williamson's dismissal.

"We knew before the tournament that we had to produce something special, otherwise it wouldn't be easy to beat teams like England and Australia", said Mortaza.

Off the back of 1-82 against Bangladesh, Ball quickly settled any debate about his place in this England side by knocking over Black Caps opener Luke Ronchi for a first-ball duck in the opening over.

"These tournaments are short and sharp and there's no room for mistakes", Williamson, who made a hundred against Australia, said after winning the toss.

Victory saw England into the last four of a tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day global sides after an eight-wicket defeat of Bangladesh at the Oval last week, regardless of the result of their last Group A match against arch-rivals Australia at Edgbaston on Saturday. "They seem to produce limited-overs cricketers at will", the former Ireland global added. The Black Caps never found a rhythm and ran out of wickets as the innings came to a close, not giving them the option to take a lot of risks.

In Cardiff on Tuesday, England posted 310 and looked under pressure when New Zealand reached 158-2.
