So that's it from Sportskeeda's live coverage of the England vs New Zealand game which was one of the most one-sided games in the World Cup so far. But it was an important game for England and they made the best use of it. 

Three sides - Australia, India, and England have made it into the semi-finals, and in all probabilities, the fourth will be NZ. It's almost locked unless some miracle happens for Pakistan on Friday vs Bangladesh. 
Eoin Morgan, the winning (England) captain: I thought we were outstanding today. It started with the two guys at the top laying the foundation. Jonny going on to get a hundred, was match-winning today. After the 25th over it started to slow up and every batsman who came in after that found that to be true. Getting to 300 odd was a competitive total. I think if the wicket dictates that 280 or 300 is par, we can do both. I didn't think it will get much worse today, but it did. It has been the theme of the tournament, that the wicket will get slower over the course of the game. If that continues, we will continue to bat first. The way we have batted in the last two games, I certainly think that has been our identity over the last two years - that the batsmen up top play with absolute freedom. Our bowlers have continued to take wickets throughout the fifty overs, and I hope this positive approach continues throughout the rest of the tournament.

Kane Williamson(New Zealand captain): It's not ideal to lose three games consecutively. It's a simple road ahead but not easy. We have to be a lot more competitive than we have been in the last few games. It's important to learn from our mistakes moving forward. They got the best of the conditions, but they were the better team. The conditions didn't decide the result, but it did change after 20 overs of their batting, and the cutters became effective on a slower wicket. Their bowlers put us under pressure from the start so full credit to England. We thought we were in the game, and it was nice to be able to pull it back. We were under a lot of pressure in that first half. We needed to build partnerships and we weren't able to take the game deep. We haven't had the flow in the batting. There are a number of variables. Today with a couple of run-outs, and one down the leg-side, it's not ideal to start a chase that way. It's one of those things. There is so much to learn from, but the most important thing is that we need to add value to our side from an individual perspective and perform our respective roles well. There have been learning curves. We have had to adapt to many different surfaces. It's nice to play some good cricket, been challenged on a number of occasions. If we are allowed the opportunity, anything can happen in the semi-finals and we haven't played our best cricket yet.
Jonny Bairstow is the Player of the Match: "Really pleased with my form. To play the way we have in the last two games and hopefully in the semis.. is pleasing. You got to just react to whatever is thrown in front of you. The toss can go either way. We applied ourselves pretty well. Obviously batting together (with Roy and the rest of the line-up) for a period of time helps, you understand each other well. We knew it was a must-win game and they are a class side. We are pleased to be through to the semi-final after what has been a tough few weeks. It's going to be important for us to go away and refresh. There is bound to be a bit of soreness, especially after two gruelling games. So ya, refresh and regroup 2-3 days before the semis. Hopefully we will put in good enough performances in the remaining two games and hopefully win them."
It's almost final. New Zealand will be playing the knockouts.

For Pakistan to qualify:
Beat Bangladesh by 311 runs after scoring 350
Beat Bangladesh by 316 runs after scoring 400
Beat Bangladesh by 321 runs after scoring 450

If Bangladesh opt to bat first on Friday, Pakistan stand eliminated even before a ball is bowled. 
England win by 119 runs with 5 overs remaining. For the first time in history, New Zealand have lost three successive games in a World Cup.
OUT! New Zealand have been bowled out for 186. Adil Rashid has a Mitchell Santner kind of ending to his spell. Started off expensive but gets a fulfilling wicket in the end.

Wonder what would've happened if Nicholls took that review and Kane Williamson was never that unlucky and for that matter Ross Taylor did not run himself out the one time. All of that put together, New Zealand could've been in a much better position now. Seems like they ran out of luck.
