England will now face Australia in their last Group A match at Edgbaston on Saturday, but the result of the clash will have least effect on the team as they already sealed the semi-final berth.

Following their wash-out when well-placed against Australia, New Zealand need to beet Bangladesh in their last group match and hope England defeat the Aussies.

England (310) grabbed their second win of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy on Tuesday, cruising to a 87-run win against New Zealand (223).

"If we had played well today we could have got 340, which is probably a match-winning score on that wicket, and we're still striving to get better as a side in doing that".

"That's the challenge tomorrow. We played very nicely against them in New Zealand in our summer back home", he said.

"Of course. any England-Australia game is a huge game", he said.

Meanwhile, Kane Williamson, the New Zealand captain, could be facing a ban for slow over-rates after his side took nearly four hours to complete the England innings.


"England bowled very, very well", said New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, "the way they extracted (some bounce) by cross seamers hitting the wicket hard". But it was Jos Buttler's 48-ball 61 knock that helped England cross the 300 runs mark.

New Zealand are, quite surprisingly, at the bottom of Group A with Bangladesh in the third position.

Right-arm pacer Adam Milne (3/79) inflicted the early damage for England by removing Roy and Hales before Correy Anderson (3/55) struck thrice in the middle overs getting the important wickets of skipper Eoin Morgan (13), Root and Moeen Ali (12).

"They're a quality side", he said.

New Zealand and Bangladesh each have a point due to their washouts against Australia and should Steve Smith's side lose, the victor of their match on Friday in Cardiff will advance to the last four.

"I don't think it's unfair of me to say a margin of victory like that can be considered a bit of a hammering and England will take massive confidence by booking itself a place in the 14 June semi-final in Cardiff after just two games".

"But we are a team that wouldn't let go of a chance, so if one is coming up tomorrow, we will have to make sure we don't let it slip".
