pitched up, De Grandhomme clears the front leg... but can only drive along the ground to long-off! England win by two runs but it is New Zealand that go through to the tri-series final
10.30pm: That's that for tonight. Stick around, though, and we'll likely have further reaction on the site... Gnasher's match report should be up shortly and he'll be heading to NZ next, so look out for him if you're in Hamilton. From us, for now, it's cheerio until Wednesday's final. Bye!
10.25pm: England's captain Eoin Morgan is named Man of the Match: [How's that feel?] "Not that good to be honest, we don't go through, 174 was what we were trying to defend. Given the start they got off to, with dew around and the ball skidding on, it was quite difficult. We needed to play our best game to get into the final and we haven't been there in this series, too slow to start. [Munro?] He's difficult to bowl to with dew around, they got on top of us. Groundman's done a fantastic job on the wicket for us to entertain the crowd. We know what it's like to play here but we need to up our skill level, which we did today but it wasn't enough."
New Zealand's Kane Williamson: "We wanted to win, England played very well but there's a good spirit in the camp and we're into the final. There were a few moments there, the way their left-handers played with the ball turning into the bat, we thought it would be a challenge, using the change of pace from the seamers. [Guptill?] Someone had to try and gets us close and Munners at the top of the order got us off to a brilliant start. Very mature knock, to get so close, one hit away. But credit to England for the way they played. [Final against Aus?] Small boundaries, good pitch, I'm sure there'll be plenty of runs."
10.20pm: What an odd finish... The crowd, obviously, wanted New Zealand to win and there was a groan when De Grandhomme found the fielder. But really, it was job done by the start of the 18th over, when they reached the mark needed to keep their net run rate above England's. Curran and Jordan (no-balls side) closed out pretty well for a victory that at least ends a run of four defeats in a row for England, but there's little consolation in their consolation win. For New Zealand, it's back to Eden Park for another sixy match-up against the Aussies.
Boundary needed off the last! Unless he bowls a wide...
well bowled, full and wide and Chapman misses, they scamper through with Buttler unable to take it cleanly
Five off two now
full toss on the pads, Chapman scoots across... and heaves it way through backward square! Just what NZ needed, Curran chastises himself for giving up a boundary
gets it up on the crease, wide of the stumps at 138kph, driven for one more to deep extra cover
full outside off, misses the yorker but Chapman can't get under it
"Why do we keep picking Jordan? He's just cannon fodder, especially in the powerplay." Did you see those yorkers, Jess? All 15 of them...
wide full toss, possible a slower ball, mishit through cover
Curran will bowl the final over, needs to defend 12 for a consolation England win
he finishes with another off-stump yorker that Chapman can only dig out - feels like he's bowled about a dozen of those this over
fires another one through to the keeper, wide yorker, dot ball
bowled 'em, full and straight! Chapman jumps across to scoop and misses... but hold on, Jordan has overstepped, this will be called a no-ball! Perfect ball to hit the base of off stump, but there was no boot behind the line, so Chapman is reprieved!
another super yorker, 143kph and all he can do is block it back to the bowler
spears in the yorker, good ball, Chapman digs it out
Still a free hit coming up, then
full again, very wide... not quite a no-ball, but definitely wide, Buttler did well to grab it
full toss, 144kph outside off, swing and a miss from De Grandhomme, Buttler can only parry it with his pads - that's a no-ball on height
full, up towards the blockhole... and De Grandhomme edges between his legs for four!
GDH: "On this pitch, pathetic batting performance from England. They should all be send home." Although they might still win the match...
fired in full and Chapman drills the single that takes New Zealand into the tri-series final. Job done... although there's still a game to win
Jordan... Can he take six wickets in the over?
"I am not going hard on Kane, but I think he must give way for a youngster at T20 for now at least. Not coming off and slowing things down too often," writes
Simon Doull Waqar Durrani
fullish on off, and Chapman steers towards point, they scamper through
Colin De Grandhomme strides out. Two runs needed (to reach the tri-series final)
slower ball, scooped into the off side, taken safely just beyond the ring! Taylor swinging hard and done by the lack of pace, Morgan snaffles it - England still a chance?
length in the channel, punched on the up through cover
"I thought that Morgan guy from Ireland was the best example of associate cricketers being not all that bad..." observes Frank, shrewdly enough. "Agree with the 10 team WC though, should be 16."
full toss, 136kph on the pads, glanced fine for one
length ball, sits up nicely as Taylor steps across and then sways back to belt it through square leg for four
