Runs : 5 Bowler: Adil Rashid Wickets : 1
Over 45. 5 runs. Bowler: Adil Rashid. New Zealand: 10-186(rr 4.13)

W
OUT! Stumped. Adil Rashid to Trent Boult. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Boult tries to come down but can't get there, the ball turns sharply and Buttler has the bails off before Boult can stretch his foot back into his crease. That's a comprehensive victory for England. When it really mattered most they've come up trumps, beating both India and now New Zealand. England look a lot better for having Roy back in the side but it's the other opener who will again take the plaudits today. Bairstow scored his second ton in as many games as England piled on the runs when the ball was hard. Their innings flopped a little at the end but in the second half they were on top from the very first over, England's fast bowling unit impressing once again. That's all from me here in sunny Durham, England qualify for the semi-finals as in all likelihood will New Zealand despite this loss.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Tim Southee Wickets : 1
49.3
W
OUT! Bowled. Tim Southee to Adil Rashid. Yorker, middle stump backing away driving, missed to. A very good yorker from Southee, Rashid was looking to give himself room again and had no chance of hitting that.
In over# 47
Runs : 0 Bowler: Matt Henry Wickets : 1
46.1
W
OUT! Caught. Matt Henry to Eoin Morgan. Slower length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Santner. Hit straight to extra cover. Fingers down the side from Henry and Morgan was there a fraction too early and hit the ball in the air. Santner almost made a mess of the catch but held on above his head. That's a good wicket for New Zealand.
In over# 45
Runs : 0 Bowler: Jimmy Neesham Wickets : 1
44.5
W
OUT! Caught. Jimmy Neesham to Chris Woakes. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Williamson. Another one gone. England can't find the boundary at all now, the softer ball holding in the pitch a bit more and making it harder to time the ball. Woakes tries to drive but hits it in the air and straight to mid-off. England are under pressure here.
In over# 42
Runs : 0 Bowler: Mitchell Santner Wickets : 1
41.6
W
OUT! Caught. Mitchell Santner to Ben Stokes. Stock length ball, to leg down the track driving, in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Henry. Frustration turns into a wicket, Ben Stokes the latest scalp for New Zealand. The Kiwis have done really well to come back into this after England got off to a flying start. Stokes tried to take Santner on down the ground but the spinner was cramping the left-handers for room and he's picked out long on.
In over# 35
Runs : 0 Bowler: Trent Boult Wickets : 1
34.2
W
OUT! Caught. Trent Boult to Jos Buttler. Slower length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to mid off, by Williamson. Well that's another one gone, New Zealand are kicking and screaming their way back into this game. Buttler completely mis-hit that drive, the bat turning in his hand and it was an easy catch for Williamson at mid-off. Lovely execution of the knuckle ball from Trent Boult, deceiving Jos Buttler there.
In over# 32
Runs : 0 Bowler: Matt Henry Wickets : 1
31.4
W
OUT! Bowled. Matt Henry to Jonny Bairstow. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to. He's gone this time, a big inside edge back into middle and leg. Not for the first time this week a man gets to a hundred and is out shortly afterwards. Two wickets in two overs for New Zealand might just help them put the brakes on this England innings.
In over# 31
Runs : 0 Bowler: Trent Boult Wickets : 1
30.1
W
OUT! Caught. Trent Boult to Joe Root. Bouncer, down leg side on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Latham. New Zealand think there's a nick on that and there is. Root has tickled one chasing a short ball down the legside. Well, Root's gone for a review but all the Kiwi players were convinced he's hit it. Here comes UltraEdge and there's a definite tremor as the ball is next to the bat and Root will have to go.
In over# 19
Runs : 0 Bowler: Jimmy Neesham Wickets : 1
18.4
W
OUT! Caught. Jimmy Neesham to Jason Roy. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Santner. Well this time it's full and Roy chips the ball up tamely to extra cover. He is furious with himself, there were plenty more runs out there for the taking. His feet went nowhere at all which is strange for someone batting so well. There was nothing special about the delivery from Neesham but it's got him a wicket.
In over# 45
Runs : 0 Bowler: Adil Rashid Wickets : 1

OUT! Stumped. Adil Rashid to Trent Boult. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper, by Buttler.

39.2
W
OUT! L.B.W. Mark Wood to Mitchell Santner. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front working, hit pad to. That looks very out. Santner has reviewed but not because he thinks he's not out. He walked across his stumps and was looking to turn the ball legside but Wood aimed at the stumps. It's hit in line and hitting middle and leg and Wood picks up another wicket.
In over# 39
Runs : 0 Bowler: Liam Plunkett Wickets : 1
38.3
W
OUT! Caught. Liam Plunkett to Tom Latham. Off cutter short, outside off stump moves in front pulling, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Plunkett digs a cutter in short and it loops up quite high off the pitch. Latham tried to pull it towards fine leg but the tennis ball bounce did for him and the ball came off his glove. Unlike his earlier effort Buttler had a very easy catch to take.
In over# 29
Runs : 0 Bowler: Ben Stokes Wickets : 1
28.1
W
OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Colin de Grandhomme. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Root. Ben Stokes strikes with his first ball. It wasn't a very threatening one but de Grandhomme hit it straight down the throat of Joe Root at deep backward square leg and New Zealand lose another.
In over# 26
Runs : 0 Bowler: Mark Wood Wickets : 1
25.1
W
OUT! Bowled. Mark Wood to Jimmy Neesham. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, inside edge to. Dragged back into off stump and Wood celebrates. It was pitched up to the batsman, fuller than Neesham perhaps expected and his feet didn't move very much. It wasn't really the right shot for the delivery but Neesham was perhaps unfortunate the ball went back into the stumps.
In over# 17
Runs : 1 Bowler: Liam Plunkett Wickets : 1
16.4
W
OUT! Run Out. Liam Plunkett to Ross Taylor. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Rashid, by Buttler. The very next over and Ross Taylor has run himself out. New Zealand are hitting the self-destruct button here. It was a good bit of work from Rashid, a quick pick up and deadly accurate throw on the bounce. A needless risk though from Taylor.
In over# 16
Runs : 0 Bowler: Mark Wood Wickets : 1
15.1
W
OUT! Run Out. Mark Wood to Ross Taylor. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to silly mid on, direct hit by Wood. Well would you believe it. We've seen this happen once or twice in this World Cup but for it to happen to your best batsman in an important run chase is pretty unlucky. Taylor pushed the ball back down the ground and Mark Wood stretched out his right hand towards the ball. The ball then hit the stumps at the bowler's end and Williamson wasn't back in his crease. There were several replays to check whether Wood touched it but there was a clear deviation off his middle finger and New Zealand's star man is gone.
In over# 6
Runs : 0 Bowler: Jofra Archer Wickets : 1
5.2
W
OUT! Caught. Jofra Archer to Martin Guptill. Short, middle stump on the back foot glancing, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Off the glove and brilliantly taken down the legside by Jos Buttler diving to his left. He was at full stretch and took it in one hand. Pace and bounce from Archer and he hurried Guptill as he tried to turn the ball away legside. The ball flicked the glove and great work from Buttler behind the stumps.
In over# 1
Runs : 0 Bowler: Chris Woakes Wickets : 1
0.5
W
OUT! L.B.W. Chris Woakes to Henry Nicholls. Seaming in back of a length, to leg on the back foot working, to. Given out first ball! Well I didn't think that was out at first look so I'm surprised Nicholls didn't review. Perhaps they didn't want to risk losing it in the first over. There were questions over pitching in line and height for me but S Ravi stuck his finger up. Here comes our first look at Hawk-Eye, it was going over the top. Had Nicholls reviewed he'd still be there.
