Rashid to Boult, OUT, dragged out of his crease, off come the bails, is this it?Yes it is! Beaten by another big turner. The back foot stretches back, but too late. England are into the semi-finals of the World Cup!

TA Boult st †Buttler b Rashid 4 (7m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Wood to Henry, OUT, splatters the stumps! Timid from Henry, popping to square leg once again as Wood bangs it in just back of a length, and thuds into middle and leg. Nearly done here!

MJ Henry b Wood 7 (17m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 53.84

Wood to Santner, OUT, walks across the stumps, huge appeal, plumb in front! Santner reviews, because, well, you would wouldn't you. But that looked horribly adjacent... pretty sure there was no bat involved either. Indeed no bat, thumping middle and leg. New Zealand are eight-down!

MJ Santner lbw b Wood 12 (58m 30b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Plunkett to Latham, OUT, banged in short, hopping down the leg side, a floppy paddle-pull, a wafer-thin edge, and the simplest of takes for Buttler! The slower ball suckered the set batsman completely, and that is officially curtains

TWM Latham c †Buttler b Plunkett 57 (106m 65b 5x4 0x6) SR: 87.69

Stokes to de Grandhomme, OUT, holes out to deep square! The golden arm of Stokes strikes! A gentle back of a length loosener, he's back and trying to pick up a pull shot but he mistimes it and hits it straight down Root's throat at deep square. It's an easy catch. Everything working for England

C de Grandhomme c Root b Stokes 3 (15m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 23.07

Wood to Neesham, OUT, chopped on! Change of angle works! It was back of a length outside off but sliding in and staying a touch low, he tried to cut but it came off the inside edge and cannoned onto the stumps! The crowd loved that

JDS Neesham b Wood 19 (31m 27b 1x4 0x6) SR: 70.37

Plunkett to Taylor, 1 run, OUT, Taylor has run himself out! Crazy! He glanced this to fine leg and decided to take on a risky second. The throw from Rashid was on the money, Buttler didn't have to do much and Taylor diving at full stretch was well short. The third umpire only needed one replay to see that. No idea why Taylor took that on.

LRPL Taylor run out (Rashid/†Buttler) 28 (54m 42b 2x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Wood to Taylor, OUT, punched back down the pitch, and Wood is appealing for the run-out! Wow, this would be massive ... was Williamson out of his crease. Yep, there's a clear fingertip on the ball as Wood stretched across the crease... and Williamson is nowhere to be seen! This will be OUT! Wood sucks his finger in celebration as the Big Screen confirms it!

KS Williamson run out (Wood) 27 (62m 40b 3x4 0x6) SR: 67.50

Archer to Guptill, OUT, utterly sensational from Buttler! That was a fat glance down the leg side, taking a deflection off the glove, but Buttler's footwork was already on the march, a cartwheeling take, stretching fully to his left and clinging on in a single glove! Archer's pace forced the error, even when his line was awry, and New Zealand's opening issues get them deep in trouble once again

MJ Guptill c †Buttler b Archer 8 (25m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Woakes to Nicholls, OUT, pinned on the pad-flap and the finger is up before the appeal is out! No messing from Woakes, or Umpire Ravi. He was back on the crease, hit him above the knee-roll on an off-stump line... might have been clipping, but golly!

HM Nicholls lbw b Woakes 0 (6m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
