England beat New Zealand to make Cricket World Cup semi-finals

Chris Woakes England

Rod Latham, who played four Tests and 33 ODIS for New Zealand, was part of the Black Caps squad that lost to eventual winners Pakistan in the 1992 edition of the World Cup.

That's doable, one thought and waited for him to continue on the radio.

They had accused India of intentionally losing the game against England to jeopardise Pakistan's chances.

The radio crackled with laughter.

"It feels pretty cool, pretty awesome", he said of the side's efforts.

As the aforementioned Taylor drove a Mark Wood delivery towards the Finchale End, Wood stuck out a hand in an attempt to catch the ball.

Bairstow hit back at England's critics in emphatic fashion with a hundred in a crucial win over India on Sunday and the opener reached three figures again as England posted 305-8 after Eoin Morgan won the toss in Durham on Wednesday.

The Kiwis have had three successive losses, and the last two in particular were one-sided yawns.

Despite continued crumbles, the Black Caps will nearly certainly squeak into the semis in fourth place, thanks largely to the one point they gained from their washout with India.

Late bloomer Gatto-Monticone faces Serena in dream Wimbledon debut
Ashleigh Barty (AUS) in action during her match against Saisai Zheng (CHN) on day two at the All England Lawn and Croquet Club. He won the key points in the first, third and fifth to prevail 7-6 (7-4) 3-6 7-6 (12-10) 0-6 6-1 in three hours, 26 minutes.

While there is no clear margin due to the complexities of net run-rate, Pakistan could only leapfrog New Zealand if they were to bat first and win by a margin of more than 300. Bowling first, they have no chance.

Knowing the precarious position Pakistan are in, Imam promised that the men in green will put everything on the line and do everything in their power to triumph over Bangladesh.

Tom Latham made a fighting 57 but it was too late to effect the result. Understandable, that. Off they went to fetch a jacket and slowly escorted the nude talent out of the arena.

Venue: Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street. With Bira 91 from India the associated brand with the ICC, the bar can only sell the Bira lager. "It was really brilliant to watch because normally you have two guys competing with each other the whole time trying to get ahead, trying to get the strike, trying to be more dominant, whereas as a partnership they are extremely dominant". So, a month before the tournament, the organising committee held talks and chose to subsidise. Besides these contributions, the rest of the batsmen have been found wanting, especially Martin Guptill, who, barring a 70 in the first-half of the tournament has struggled to cross single digits on four occasions now.

Meanwhile, the match meandered on.

Bowlers have been running out of ideas about how to remove New Zealand captain Kane Williamson.

"The way his New Zealand team played, the way they did it their own way was important".

It's puzzling to an extent. Kane Williamson has come out to bat in the first over on three occasions and once each in the second, third, sixth and ninth overs.

Mathematically, Pakistan are still not out of the World Cup, but nothing short of a miracle can make them steal the semi-final spot from New Zealand.
