England won by 10 runs | England Vs New Zealand Live Score, 11th Match, Group A

That is all from us here. Join us for the final league match between Australia and Sri Lanka tomorrow. Ciao!
Presentation Quotes:
Cook: 'It was a stressful day, especially the last few overs. The partnership between Williamson and Corey Anderson was excellent and we were glad to get over the line. The bowlers were wonderful and Anderson was fantastic. We were very good in the field today. We were actually 10 runs short. We are not worried about playing at the Oval. I am just glad that we have qualified for the semi-final. We have two games to go and we have to play well. Swann has a calf injury but we are lucky to have a fantastic replacement in Tredwell.'
Cook is the MoM for his knock of 64.
Brendon McCullum: 'England bowled very well at the start of the innings. We were not in the game but the knocks from Williamson and Corey Anderson was wonderful. We dropped a few catches. Normally, Nathan is a good fielder but the ball followed him today. We were good with the ball. We will be rooting for Australia tomorrow which is not something we do. I am not going to say 'Come on Aussie, Come on Aussie'.
Now, these are the scenarios. England have qualified for the semi-finals. Now for Sri Lanka to qualify for the semi-finals, they have to defeat Australia in the final league match tomorrow. For New Zealand to qualify, they have to hope that Australia defeats Sri Lanka by a small margin. If the final league match is washed out or tied, then New Zealand go through. For Australia to qualify, they have to defeat Sri Lanka by a big margin.
The first spell from Anderson has made the difference. He snapped up Ronchi and Guptill cheaply as he swung the ball prodigiously. Taylor and Brendon McCullum failed to score quickly but a 73 run stand between Williamson and Corey Anderson kept New Zealand interested. However, England fielded well in the end overs and always maintained the pressure as New Zealand suffered a 10 run loss.
