Kane Williamson | New Zealand captain
We’re bowling first. It’s a good pitch but a bit of dew later. We’re going in with the same team.
Busy period for us, and we’ve come through, giving in good performances. The two most experienced bowlers have bowled beautifully throughout the tournament, and after Lockie, Milne has come in and done well too.
England has a lot of depth, that’s their strength, and we have the opportunity to play our own brand of cricket to make it to the final.
Eoin Morgan | England captain
We would have looked to bowl first too, but hopefully, the toss doesn’t decide the result of the game. Roy misses out today, obviously, he’s disappointed because he’s played a big role for us in this tournament, and to miss out on a semi-final is devastating. However, Billings gets another chance.
He’s been doing the hard work and carrying the drinks for us, and it’s a big opportunity for him. Bairstow will open today, instead of Roy, since he’s done it really well in the past.
We can’t take New Zealand lightly at all, they’ve been playing semi-finals and finals for a lot longer than we have, so we’ll have to play out of our skins to beat them. Looking forward to a great contest today.

Player of the Match
Daryl Mitchell | 72*(47)
It was a bit of a whirl at the end there. I couldn’t remember what was going on, but I’m happy I got the job done. It was a challenging surface, with the new ball, and it was two-paced.
The way Conway set the platform and Neesh hit a few out of the ground was amazing. We knew one or two good overs would do it, and we got the momentum back thanks to Neesham’s hitting.
With what’s going on around the world right now, it’s amazing that my old man travelled half way around the world to watch me play, so this is a proud moment.
