Morgan hails brilliant England bowlers

Share

New Zealand won the toss and chose to field against England in their second Group B encounter of the Champions Trophy at the Sophia Gardens, Cardiff on Tuesday.

Half-centuries from Joe Root (64), Jos Buttler (61 not out) and Alex Hales (56) proved enough - although Morgan admitted he was far from sure they would after England were bowled out in 49.3 overs. When Liam Plunkett, who took four for 55, ended the match, the Black Caps had been dismissed for 223. I thought they did an outstanding job.

A win in their final Group A game at Edgbaston on Saturday would put their old rivals on a plane home, but if England let them off the hook they could face them in the final at The Ovalon Sunday week.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson gave a tough fight to the England bowlers, producing a third-wicket partnership of 95 runs with Ross Taylor. Sometimes these things heal quicker, sometimes they take longer, so we have to play it by ear.

"I thought we were a bit unlucky. I'm sure we'd love to come hard at the top order, which has been playing very well".

Leg-spinner Adil Rashid justified his selection in place of the injured Chris Woakes with two for 47 in 10 overs, with Plunkett ending the match when Tim Southee was caught at deep midwicket.

New Zealand have the pedigree, but it would be foolish to rule out Bangladesh, given their improved showing in this format in recent years. I'm not sure why that is.

Morgan confirmed England will not be letting up at the weekend. So, definitely as a bowling unit we need to take wickets, but it should be a very good encounter.
