England beat New Zealand

World Cup 2019 – Twitter Reactions: Jonny Bairstow, bowlers power England into the semifinals

Jonny Bairstow smashed his second successive century as England thrashed New Zealand by 119 runs to storm into the semifinals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

At the Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street on Wednesday, Bairstow’s gritty knock of 106 guided England to 305/8 in their 50 overs.

Coming out for the chase, two crucial run-outs of Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor, cost the Black Caps as they got bungled out for just 186 in 45 overs.

Despite the defeat, New Zealand still has a chance of reaching the semifinals. However, Pakistan’s hopes of reaching the last-four dimmed further.

Brief Scores: England 305/8 in 50 overs (Jonny Bairstow 106, Jason Roy 60; James Neesham 2-41, Trent Boult 2-56) beat New Zealand 186 in 45 overs (Tom Latham 57, Ross Taylor 28; Mark Wood 3-34) by 119 runs.
