The hosts batted first and posted a challenging 310 on the board with the likes of Joe Root, Alex Hales and Jos Buttler scoring half centuries.

With one point in their kitty, New Zealand will now have to win their last group match against Bangladesh and hope England beat Australia to progress into the knock-out stages of the tournament.

The New Zealand side are set to match up against Bangladesh in Cardiff on Friday night (NZ time) in their final pool match of the one-day cricket worldwide competition, with England and Australia facing off in the pool's other fixture.

Asked just how poorly England performed with the bat, Morgan suggested they were "10 or 15" runs below the par score for Tuesday's wicket.

"We don't put any pressure on ourselves to live up to being the favourites, I think we just earn that right from the way that we played". "So pretty average. So I thought the bowlers today as a collective unit were brilliant, really".

Morgan, meanwhile, knows his side will top the group regardless of the result of their final pool fixture against Australia, on Saturday, where a win over their Ashes rivals for the second time in successive Champions Trophy editions at Edgbaston would likely eliminate their oldest foes. The Blackcaps needed someone to steady things and Martin Guptill duly obliged, sending Ball to the boundary as New Zealand slowly began stockpiling some runs. They seem to produce limited overs cricketers at will.

Buttler added: "We've got some good memories of playing there".

"With the inconsistency of the pitch, I thought if we genuinely did take one, we would take two".

Williamson fell to a ball from Wood that leapt at him from short of a length to take his glove for caught-behind.

Taylor became Ball's second victim soon after before Liam Plunkett (4-55) and Adil Rashid (2-47) combined to wreak havoc as the Kiwis lost their way, losing 8-65 in chaotic scenes to leave their place in the tournament hanging by a thread.

"We will take a very serious attitude into the Australia game".

"It feels good to be in the semis but we are not satisfied", said Morgan. Jake Ball who bowled a splendid opening spell and brilliantly later too, was declared Man of the Match.

But certainly England bowled very, very well, the way they extracted it by [bowling] cross seamers hitting the wicket hard.

Williamson accepted a fine of 40 per cent of his match fee, while his players received a fine of 20 per cent.
