Eoin Morgan praises 'outstanding' England bowlers after New Zealand win

16 June 2017

Ben Stokes scored 48 and it was Jos Buttler's 48-ball 61 that lifted England to 310 before they were all out three balls short of the 50 over.

After a comfortable outing in the tournament opener, title favourite England is set to face a much stiffer test against New Zealand in a crucial Champions Trophy Group A fixture on Tuesday. "I think we proved that in Leeds after what happened in Manchester".

Wood makes a big difference to this England attack with his pace and ability to take wickets in the middle of the innings and while Morgan was reluctant to single any one of his bowler's out, New Zealand's captain was full of praise for the Durham seamer.

The England bowlers later on bowled with fire to restrict the New Zealand batting line up to 223 runs.

Jake Ball and Adil Rashid picked up two wickets apiece as Kane Williamson was the only Kiwi batsman to offer some resistance.

England got off to solid start with the openers adding 37 inside eight overs but Jason Roy's struggles with the bat continued when he was bowled by Adam Milne for just 13.

Earlier, Buttler's knock which came off just 48 balls with the help of two fours and two sixes provided the just-needed impetus to England's innings to get past the 300-run mark.

Towards the end, Buttler ran out partners as Tim Southee (2/44) went through England's lower-order. They bowled very consistently, and made life hard for us with the bat. "A lot of credit goes to the way they bowled on that surface to extract what they did out of it". He finished with figures of 10-0-47-2, though, and would have had a third wicket for good measure if he had not dropped a return catch in his final over. Ben Stokes proved a huge threat with 48 off 53, including four fours and two sixes, before looping an uppercut nearly straight to Milne at third man.
