HIGHLIGHTS

  • 22:49 (IST)

    Trent Boult was the last to go here, wickets were shared around in totality. Wood took three at the end, and all bowlers barring Root picked up one wicket each. With that, we bring an end to proceedings here. England have qualified! One spot remains.

  • 22:46 (IST)

    OUT! And that's that! New Zealand are all-out for 186, and England have registered a comprehensive 119-run victory here. With that, they seal their spot in the semi-finals of the World Cup.

  • 22:38 (IST)

    OUT! Matt Henry is cleaned up Mark Wood. Clean bowled, Henry showed him too much of the stumps and with so much to aim at, he didn't miss. England are one wicket away from victory.

  • 22:22 (IST)

    OUT! Mitchell Santner is dismissed for 12 runs, LBW by Mark Wood. Wood is delivering exactly what he was brought into the attack for, and England aren't too far away from a win now. 166/8 now.

  • 22:15 (IST)

    OUT! Latham is gone for 57, and he's caught behind by Buttler off the bowling of Liam Plunkett. A laborious stay towards the end of his stint comes to an end. New Zealand are now 164/7.

  • 21:56 (IST)

    FOUR! A beautiful drive that, by Latham. It's the first boundary New Zealand have scored in a while, and brings some cheer among their supporters. At the end of 34 overs, the score reads 146/6.

  • 21:25 (IST)

    OUT! Ben Stokes strikes with his first ball of the spell, and the local hero has dismissed de Grandhomme! Just as the partnership was looking meaningful, Stokes has done the damage. He goes for 3, New Zealand are 128/6. Everything going wrong for the Black Caps.

  • 21:11 (IST)

    GONE! Neesham is gone for 19 as he chops the ball onto his own stumps! Just as the pair bring up the 50 run partnership, Wood does the damage. Pace was brought back into the attack, and has come through. The black caps have lost half their side. It's 123/5.

  • 20:53 (IST)

    FOUR! A great shot by Tom Latham through the mid off region. Adil Rashid is not being allowed to settle at the minute. New Zealand have reached 97/4 at the end of 22 overs.

22:49 (IST)

Trent Boult was the last to go here, wickets were shared around in totality. Wood took three at the end, and all bowlers barring Root picked up one wicket each. With that, we bring an end to proceedings here. England have qualified! One spot remains.

22:46 (IST)

OUT! And that's that! New Zealand are all-out for 186, and England have registered a comprehensive 119-run victory here. With that, they seal their spot in the semi-finals of the World Cup.

22:38 (IST)

OUT! Matt Henry is cleaned up Mark Wood. Clean bowled, Henry showed him too much of the stumps and with so much to aim at, he didn't miss. England are one wicket away from victory.

22:36 (IST)

The New Zealand tail enders are not being able to pick Adil Rashid here, and at the end of 43 overs, the score reads 180/8. It's just about winding down the overs at this point for them.

22:33 (IST)

Mark Wood has completed his eighth over of his spell, which was peppered with quite a few bouncers to the tail enders here. Tim Southee is getting the short treatment. It's 176/8 after 42 overs.

22:31 (IST)

Adil Rashid completed his first over back in the attack with unerring accuracy, and at the end of 41 overs, the score reads 176/8.

22:22 (IST)

OUT! Mitchell Santner is dismissed for 12 runs, LBW by Mark Wood. Wood is delivering exactly what he was brought into the attack for, and England aren't too far away from a win now. 166/8 now.

22:19 (IST)

166/7 after 39 overs. Mark Wood is being brought back into the attack to seal things.

22:15 (IST)

OUT! Latham is gone for 57, and he's caught behind by Buttler off the bowling of Liam Plunkett. A laborious stay towards the end of his stint comes to an end. New Zealand are now 164/7.

22:12 (IST)

164/6 at the end of 38 overs. A boundary came off the last ball of the over as Jonny Bairstow desperately tried to stop it on the boundary, but to no avail. It might be a little too late in the day for New Zealand, though.

22:09 (IST)

Tom Latham has brought up his 50, and New Zealand are 153/6 after 37 overs. Just 13 overs are remaining in the innings, and New Zealand need to accelerate at this point. No signs of that happening soon, though, as the run-rate continues to be at four an over, when the required rate is around 11.

22:02 (IST)

147/6 at the end of 35 overs, as the local boy Stokes goes through another over. England look like they are going to book their place in the semi-finals but much like India against England, this run chase is leaving a lot to be desired. Mostly, intent. New Zealand look like they're not too fussed about running down the overs here.

21:56 (IST)

FOUR! A beautiful drive that, by Latham. It's the first boundary New Zealand have scored in a while, and brings some cheer among their supporters. At the end of 34 overs, the score reads 146/6.

21:48 (IST)

At the resumption of play, New Zealand seem to be playing the waiting game. Perhaps even resolved themselves to not losing too many wickets till the last few overs are remaining and then go all out again at that point. However, it might be too little, too late by then. At the end of 33 overs, New Zealand are 139/6.

21:40 (IST)

New Zealand are refraining from taking any risks when Jofra Archer is bowling. He speeds through his over anc concedes only one run from it. It's 136/6 after 32 overs, and the umpires have called for drinks.

21:37 (IST)

Santner took his time, and finally got off the mark with the eighth ball that he faced. Ben Stokes is mixing it up here, serving his usual fare of cutters, slower ones and yorkers. At the end of 31 overs, it's 135/6.

21:33 (IST)

Archer has been brought back into the attack to accelerate proceedings for England, but it won't be easy going. Not yet. Latham is still at the crease, and Mitchell Santner has been known to be a handy batsman. 132/6 after 30 overs.

21:28 (IST)

Stokes has been on the money this over. At the end of 29 overs, the score reads 130 for six. It included a wicket, and England may already be looking to go for the kill.

21:25 (IST)

OUT! Ben Stokes strikes with his first ball of the spell, and the local hero has dismissed de Grandhomme! Just as the partnership was looking meaningful, Stokes has done the damage. He goes for 3, New Zealand are 128/6. Everything going wrong for the Black Caps.

21:23 (IST)

It's 128/5 after 28 overs, and runs are hard to come by for New Zealand. The English bowlers are firmly on top, and have no intention of letting up from this position. It will take a special performance from Latham or de Grandhomme to bail them out of this one.

21:18 (IST)

126/5 reads the score, as two runs came from that over. The combination of pace and spin used interchangably has worked well, and not allowed the New Zealand batsmen to settle.

21:16 (IST)

It's 124/5 at the end of 26 overs. Each time New Zealand take a couple of steps forward in the game, they are pegged back by a wicket. England are on an impressive run with the ball here. 

21:11 (IST)

GONE! Neesham is gone for 19 as he chops the ball onto his own stumps! Just as the pair bring up the 50 run partnership, Wood does the damage. Pace was brought back into the attack, and has come through. The black caps have lost half their side. It's 123/5.

21:08 (IST)

Liam Plunkett could really hold the key to how England progress in this innings. His variations and cutters will be vital to how the New Zealand batsmen could be contained, and with his unerring accuracy, you wouldn't put it past him to get another breakthrough. At the end of 25 overs, New Zealand are 123/4 as the pair of Latham and Neesham bring up the 50 partnership.

21:04 (IST)

Neesham and Latham have reached that point in their partnership which Williamson and Taylor previously reached, picking up singles and rotating the strike at will. What is crucial is they don't repeat the mistakes of the previous pair and lose their wickets. It's 115/4 after 24 overs.

20:59 (IST)

It's reaching that part of the innings where New Zealand need to step into third gear, to get their innings going on the right path to achieve this chase. 1-6/4 after 23 overs.

20:56 (IST)

Root is getting through his overs almost like he's throwing rounds of darts here. Seven runs came off that over, including a boundary. New Zealand are 104/4 after 22 overs.

20:53 (IST)

FOUR! A great shot by Tom Latham through the mid off region. Adil Rashid is not being allowed to settle at the minute. New Zealand have reached 97/4 at the end of 22 overs.

20:50 (IST)

Another quick over bowled by Joe Root, and the score reads 87/4 at the end of the 20th over. It is par for a chase of just above 300 in this day and age of batting, and for New Zealand, the most important things is to not lose any more wickets.

20:49 (IST)

Well, nine runs came off that last over, and if there is one thing that is not dropping, it is the run-rate. 84/4 after 19 overs.

England Vs New Zealand in the ICC World Cup 2019 on July 3 (Wednesday) will be broadcast on the Star Sports network and Live streaming will be available on Hotstar. The match will be played at Birmingham and will begin at 1500 HRS IST. You can also follow all the action on our live blog. (ENG vs NZ).

PREVIEW: England and New Zealand have taken different routes to this point but both of them have the same goal — win the ICC World Cup match on Wednesday (July 3) at Chester-le-Street in Durham and confirm a place for the semifinal stage.

While the Kiwis are one point ahead of the hosts — thanks to their washed-out match against India — a loss doesn’t mean curtains for them but a defeat for the Englishmen might mean Pakistan or Bangladesh can still sneak past them into the last four stage.

England were the No. 1-ranked ODI side coming into the World Cup and favourites to win the title at home but defeats to Pakistan, Australia and Sri Lanka meant they were pushed to the brink. But a win over unbeaten Indian side in their last game on Sunday was a huge confidence boost to Eoin Morgan’s side, giving them the belief that they can still reach the semifinals.

The Black Caps, who were on a high in the first-half of the tournament, have run into some rough weather in their last couple of games. Defeats to Pakistan and Australia have left Kane Williamson’s side vulnerable in the business end of the World Cup.

The Riverside stadium in Durham witnessed a high-scoring clash between Sri Lanka and West Indies on Monday, with the latter almost chasing down 338 to win. England will love such conditions as they have done well in batsmen-friendly conditions since the 2015 World Cup in ODI cricket.

The hosts will bank once again on the likes of Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Joe Root and the in-form Ben Stokes. Jos Buttler has had a couple of modest encounters but England will need him on top form should they make the last four stage.

Their pace bowling attack featuring Jofra Archer and Mark Wood is probably at par with New Zealand’s attack led by Trent Boult and Lockie Fergusson. One area that the hosts could exploit is New Zealand’s struggling openers Martin Guptill and Henry Nichols.

With both sides gunning for big wins, England and New Zealand will definitely look to provide a thrilling encounter.

Last Five ODIs

England: WWLLW

The hosts have had a rollercoaster ride in the World Cup so far. Comfortable wins over West Indies and Afghanistan was followed by stunning reverses against Sri Lanka and Australia. They have managed to partially resurrect their campaign with a 31-run win over India but face New Zealand in another do-or-die clash.

New Zealand: NRWWLL

After going unbeaten in the first half of the tournament, the Black Caps have now suffered successive reverses against Pakistan by six wickets and against Australia by 86 runs. They only managed to squeeze past West Indies by five runs in the game before that.

Players to Watch Out for

England: Ben Stokes: The all-rounder has been in wonderful touch especially with the willow. Three successive fifties, 370 runs at an average of 61.66 at a strike-rate of 98.93, make him one of the dangerous prospects for New Zealand. With Buttler struggling for form after his century against Pakistan, Stokes has played the role of the finishers perfectly.

New Zealand: Trent Boult: A hat-trick against the Australians was not enough to lift the Kiwis but the left-arm seamer has picked up 13 wickets in seven games so far and is the second highest wicket-taker for his side. The Kiwis will count on him to provide a few early breakthroughs against England.

Team News/ Availability

England: Opener Roy and Archer both look fit enough to turn out against New Zealand and Morgan should have a full squad to pick his final XI from.

New Zealand: Their opening combination remains a worry with Nichols also failing after Colin Munro was replaced due to poor form. Williamson may stick with Ish Sodhi to give more variety to his attack.

Squads

England: Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk), Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), Tom Blundell (wk), Mitchell Santner, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Colin Munro, Ish Sodhi, Henry Nicholls, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Jimmy Neesham
