06 June 2017 (50-over match)
  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JJ Roy b Milne 13 38 23 2 0 56.52
7.6 bowled him behind the legs! Milne strikes, NZ have their first wicket and it's unlucky 13 for Roy... Again he walked across, exposing his stumps, Milne fired the ball in quick and straight in response and Roy was beaten, via a brush of the pad, aiming a flick over the leg side 37/1
View dismissal AD Hales b Milne 56 99 62 3 2 90.32
20.6 well, there's a riposte and a half! Hales was sitting back, expecting the short ball, but instead he's done in by a bail-trimmer - squared up on the crease, bat going nowhere. The end of a fine and threatening innings. Good breakthrough from Milne 118/2
View dismissal JE Root b Anderson 64 122 65 4 2 98.46
33.3 dragged on! That's a big blow, and the product of Root's failure to get enough of the strike in recent overs. A flat-footed carve, aiming through the off-side, and instead taking out his own poles to send the zing-bails into ecstasy 188/4
View dismissal EJG Morgan* c †Ronchi b Anderson 13 18 12 2 0 108.33
24.3 edged and gone! A slightly low-key departure, as Morgan gallops down the track, was forced to reach for his drive as Anderson dangled it out wide, and up went the finger for a feather to the keeper 134/3
View dismissal BA Stokes c Milne b Boult 48 63 53 4 2 90.56
37.3 short ball, Stokes rocks back to uppercut... but he doesn't get it cleanly and the ball loops tamely to third man jogging in! Another wicket goes down when England needed him to go on, NZ keeping a handle on the innings, despite damp conditions and a slippery ball 210/5
JC Buttler not out 61 76 48 2 2 127.08
View dismissal MM Ali c Boult b Anderson 12 13 11 0 1 109.09
40.3 brilliant catch from Boult! Moeen is gone after a typically ephemeral contribution, though it took a superb bit of fielding to send him on his way as he connected with a pull, it flew towards short fine leg, where Boult threw himself to his left and grabbed it two-handed 230/6
View dismissal AU Rashid lbw b Santner 12 16 11 1 0 109.09
43.6 revenge for Santner, who skids the ball through Rashid to hit the back leg... he reviews but that looked pretty plumb. Yep, no bat involved and that's hitting middle two inches from the top. So that's the DRS spin used up, with six more overs to bat and 300 looking a distant target 260/7
View dismissal LE Plunkett c Southee b Milne 15 25 10 1 1 150.00
48.6 this time Plunkett perishes trying to swing for the hills! Milne hits the middle of the pitch again, top-edged on the pull and although it swirls in the wind, mid-on clings on 309/8
View dismissal MA Wood c Taylor b Southee 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
49.2 gone first ball, sliced to cover! Wood was backing away and miscued a shortish ball off the splice, straight to the fielder and they had no chance of getting Buttler back on strike, either 310/9
View dismissal JT Ball c Boult b Southee 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
49.3 out, superbly taken by Boult! Ball turned away and fended into the leg side, Boult sprinted to his right from square leg and leapt to snag it full length! So Southee finishes it with two in two, England are bolwed out, Buttler won't get back on strike... but it's still a handy total 310/10

View dismissal MJ Guptill c Root b Stokes 27 56 33 4 0 81.81
13.3 here comes Golden Arm! Hanging back in the crease, not in position to drive the fuller length, and Root is on hand at fifth slip to snaffle the edge! 63/2
View dismissal L Ronchi b Ball 0 5 1 0 0 0.00
0.4 nut! Nipping back through the gate with Ronchi's feet stuck in clay! Fizzes through his limp defences to pluck out the top of middle! 1/1
View dismissal KS Williamson* c †Buttler b Wood 87 132 98 8 0 88.77
30.2 got him, huge wicket! Ripping ball from Wood, takes the glove and Buttler snaffles it! That dodgy bounce finally unsettles Williamson's famous equilibrium, but credit to Wood for finding it, cross-seam again and it shot through like a startled horse and bucked against the glove as he looked for another angled late dab 158/3
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Root b Ball 39 95 59 3 0 66.10
33.4 tries to slog off a length... but picks out midwicket! Taylor's pips squeak as England squeeze out another big wicket. Tight lines paying off for Ball, a solid grab from Root with Taylor trying to manufacture something 168/4
View dismissal NT Broom lbw b Rashid 11 38 21 0 0 52.38
37.6 big sweep at a regulation legspinner, misses it entirely and up goes the finger. There's a slight chance it did too much and could be missing off, but it's a roll of the dice as Broom reviews . Oof ... clipping the top of off, but that's all it takes. Off Broom goes 194/6
View dismissal JDS Neesham c Hales b Plunkett 18 18 14 1 1 128.57
36.6 he goes for it once again, clearing the front leg for the big heave-ho, but this time he's gone squarer, and there's more pitch to clear over there ... Hales steadies himself on the rope, and New Zealand lose their fifth! 191/5
View dismissal CJ Anderson c Hales b Plunkett 10 29 15 1 0 66.66
42.5 flogged across the line, Anderson had to have a go, but he's holed out to deep midwicket! That, right there, is the game 211/8
View dismissal MJ Santner st †Buttler b Rashid 3 14 9 0 0 33.33
41.1 stumped off a wide! Santner charged out of his crease, Rashid saw him coming, speared his googly out of his reach, and that's a smart gather from Buttler as he whips off the bails! 205/7
View dismissal AF Milne c Rashid b Plunkett 10 16 11 1 0 90.90
44.1 an ambitious spank down the ground, Plunkett keeps picking off the wickets! Miscued off the splice to a tumbling Rashid at mid-on. Start the car! 223/9
View dismissal TG Southee c Roy b Plunkett 2 9 6 0 0 33.33
44.3 wide on the crease, a round-house pull, a spiralling top-edge, Roy claims the catch at deep midwicket, and England have qualified for the Champions Trophy semi-finals! 223/10
