ICC Champions Trophy 2017 Results: England Tops New Zealand, Reaches Semi-Finals


England booked their place in the Champions Trophy semi-finals with an 87-run win over New Zealand in Cardiff.

Jake Ball, a disappointment in England's opening day win over Bangladesh, set the tone for England when he removed the unsafe Luke Ronchi in the first over of New Zealand's response.

New Zealand will look to revive their Champions Trophy campaign by beating England in Cardiff today after a frustrating start to the one-day worldwide tournament.

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.

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

Asked what approach his side will take into the Australia match, given they have now won Group A, Morgan replied: "A very serious attitude".

The upshot was that Australia and New Zealand received just a point apiece, while England took two after defeating Bangladesh by eight wickets in their opener at the Oval.

Asked just how poorly England performed with the bat, Morgan suggested they were "10 or 15" runs below the par score for Tuesday's wicket.

New Zealand was never really in the hunt, with Kane Williamson's 87 the only shining light as the Kiwis were bowled out for 223, with Liam Plunkett claiming four wickets.

On a day for the unusual, Mitchell Santner was stumped off a wide against Adil Rashid, who impressed on his return with 2-47 off 10 overs.

With a similar outcome from their first game against New Zealand, Australia have two points from two washouts and now have to beat England in their final group game to have a chance of making the semi-finals.

England players who were present in the dressing room came out on the balcony to observe a minute's silence while New Zealand players did the same from the ground. Joe Root top scored for the second game in a row with 64 from 65 balls as the hosts set the Kiwis 311 to win in what was expected to be a rain-hit match in south Wales. Ben Stokes (48) continued to play his shots with two sixes and three boundaries but Anderson once again returned back to castle Root as England were reduced to 189 for four. On reaching his fifty, Hales was castled by Milne, while Corey Anderson (3-55) had Eoin Morgan (13) caught behind few overs later. If those two go on to make big scores, New Zealand will invariably win.

Williamson pleaded guilty and was fined 40 per cent of his match fee, while the rest of his team got 20 per cent fines.
