Captain Alastair Cook is confident England can win in the semi-final. The hosts advanced to the last four with a 10-run victory over New Zealand in a rain-affected Group 'A' match here on Sunday.

With the match reduced to 24 overs a side, man-of-the-match Cook compiled an excellent 64 — although he was dropped three times by Nathan McCullum — to help England to 169 all out as they were dismissed two balls inside the distance.

New Zealand could only reach 159 for eight in reply. England will now face South Africa at The Oval on Wednesday.
