England ready for 'decider' versus New Zealand
England will face familiar foes when they bid to book their place in the Champions Trophy semi-finals against New Zealand in Cardiff on Sunday.
Earlier this year, England won a limited overs series in New Zealand only for the Black Caps to turn the tables in England shortly before the Champions Trophy, a tournament for the world’s top eight one-day sides, got underway.
England must beat New Zealand to seal a last four spot. If they lose they are out and either Australia or Sri Lanka will go through from Group A after their match on Monday.
“We know the Kiwis are a gritty side, well-organised, well-led, but so are we,” coach Ashley Giles said.
