20OUTStokes to McClenaghan, out McClenaghan Run Out!! No, he can't. Swings hard but doesn't make the required connection. Stokes keeps it full and outside off, McClenaghan wanted to send it out of the ground, threw everything at that and missed. Buttler relayed it to Stokes, who hit the bulls-eye at bowler's end to catch McClenaghan short of the crease. McClenaghan run out (Buttler/Stokes) 1(2)153/8
19.2OUTStokes to Santner, out Caught by Jordan!! New Zealand have lost all the steam. Stokes picks up his third. Fullish and slanted across the left-hander, Santner for some reason didn't go full-throttle with the loft, gently chips it to long-off and Jordan has bucket hands. He isn't going to drop those. Santner c Jordan b Stokes 7(6) [4s-1]150/7
18.5FOURJordan to Santner, FOUR, New Zealand need few more of this. First boundary in almost 3 overs. Says how well England have bowled. Full toss outside off, a rare occasion Jordan has missed the yorker, Santner shimmed down and slapped it in front of square, sweeper ran across and dived in vain149/6
17.4OUTStokes to Corey Anderson, out Caught by Jordan!! Stokes is on a hat-trick. New Zealand innings is falling apart. Stokes is smiling now, would not have been the case had this full toss been deposited into the crowd. Yes, that's right. He has got a wicket with another full toss. Anderson cleared his front leg to swing, miscued it over the bowler's head. Seemed to be dropping in no man's land, Jordan had other ideas, sprinted across from long-off and pouched it easily. Corey Anderson c Jordan b Stokes 28(23) [4s-2 6s-1]139/6
17.3OUTStokes to Ronchi, out Caught by Willey at long off!! Ronchi's horrid form in the competition continues. He was sent above Elliott and Santner, a move that didn't work. A full toss on the stumps, Ronchi could have launched it anywhere, instead he lofts it straight down the throat of Willey. He didn't get the elevation that he was looking for. Ronchi c Willey b Stokes 3(3)139/5
17.1OTHERStokes to Corey Anderson, 1 run, direct hit and Anderson was on his bike. Morgan has his hands on his head and that is why. Fullish and just short of yorker length, Anderson drills the drive to mid-off and sets off, Jordan misses the stumps at the bowler's end137/4

17.1SIXSantner to Buttler, SIX, England have stormed into the final. The English dugout is up on its feet with everyone absolutely thrilled. It's been a complete reversal from Wellington, in the ODI WC, where they were humbled by the Kiwi outfit. The fireworks go off in the background and what a performance in a big semi-final! Some style too with which Buttler finished it. Rocked back and pummeled a half-tracker over deep mid-wicket.159/3
16.5SIXIsh Sodhi to Buttler, SIX, six more! Looped up outside off, Buttler metes out the same punishment and sends it rocketing over long-off. Just two to get152/3
16.4SIXIsh Sodhi to Buttler, SIX, clubbed straight back! Buttler in a big hurry. Sees the flight, reaches out slightly to fetch it and nails it down the ground with a whack146/3
16.3FOURIsh Sodhi to Buttler, FOUR, Buttler marauds a long-hop through square leg. Too short. Too slow and Buttler has whacked the pull in the gap140/3
16.1FOURIsh Sodhi to Root, FOUR, another reverse-sweep. More of a paddle this time. And it's four more. Uses all the pace on the leg-break and helps it past short third man who gives a valiant chase. Futile chase135/3
15.5FOURElliott to Buttler, FOUR, now that should kill New Zealand all right. Buttler has seen the over being full of length ball leg-cutters, shapes for the reverse sweep early and hits it past backward point131/3
