Penalised for slow over-rate in Cardiff

England reached the semi-finals of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy after beating New Zealand by 87 runs at Cardiff on Tuesday. Jake Ball bowled a tight spell of 31/2 in his eight overs to restrict New Zealand and the Kiwis' chances of qualifying for the semis now look very bleak.

Earlier England, sent into bat by Williamson, made 310 all out, thanks mainly to Joe Root's 64 and Jos Buttler's unbeaten 61.

Only skipper Kane Williamson (87, 98b, 8×4) offered resistance.

Williamson's essay was studded with eight boundaries as he and Ross Taylor (39) stitched together a 95-run stand for the third wicket, the highest of the match.

Morgan's side face Australia at Edgbaston on Saturday in their final Group A game.

· The Black Caps have won three of their four previous ODIs at this venue in Cardiff; facing England in only one of those outings however, New Zealand lost that game by a margin of 10 runs.

Chasing 235 in 33 overs, Australia were put under severe pressure by New Zealand, reducing them to 53 for three in nine overs before rain had the final say.

Liam Plunkett was the pick of the bowlers, taking four wickets as New Zealand subsided to 223 all out in the 45th over.

Morgan, shuffling his pack, recalled Wood and the Durham quick duly delivered the wicket his side badly needed when a rising ball took Williamson s glove and diving wicket-keeper Buttler clung on to the catch.

"We tried to learn from our batting", explained England captain Eoin Morgan at the presentation ceremony.

"The dominant factor in New Zealand was that they had that confidence, whereas we didn't".

England appeared set for a bigger total after being put in on a breezy day, but second-wicket pair Root and Hales were unable to consolidate following their stand of 81.

Opener Jason Roy, looking horribly out of form, was bowled by a straight ball from Adam Milne for 13 and Alex Hales swept across the line after a quickfire 56 as Milne took another wicket.

"I think we can", he said, referencing England's victory over South Africa in Leeds two days after the first attack at the Manchester Arena last month.

Williamson, who escaped a ban for his side's slow over rate but was docked 40% of his match fee to go with 20% for his players, had few complaints over the result and admitted England's attack simply made better use of the two-paced pitch.

House intelligence committee subpoenas Michael Flynn, Michael Cohen
Unmasking requests are not uncommon, said Charles Price, a former FBI agent who worked at the bureau for almost three decades. Russian officials had pledged to wait for Trump to take office before reacting but last month said they might retaliate.

Plunkett was the main beneficiary, dismissing James Neesham (18), Corey Anderson (10), Milne (10) and Tim Southee (2) to finish with figures of four for 55 - the ideal tonic after the tournament-ending injury to Chris Woakes.
