Welcome Back! Chris Woakes is marking his run up in the middle. Martin Guptill and Henry Nicholls to start the New Zealand run chase.

Jonny Bairstow: “Really pleased with my performance. I got a couple of low scores earlier in the competition. I felt the need to contribute with some runs, but I’m disappointed that I didn’t get a big one after getting to my hundred. You want to fire against the best teams in the world and consistently do it. NZ have got quality bowlers, and we have learned things from the first innings and we need to try and use those pointers when we’re bowling. We have to adjust a little bit in the second innings and hopefully we can execute our skills well. It was a little slow, and they were bowling a lot of cutters and cross-seamers into the wicket, so we need to apply that in our bowling as well.”

* Jonny Bairstow’s second consecutive century guided England to 305/8 against New Zealand in their final group game on Wednesday. The match is crucial for England, with a win securing a semi-final spot but defeat leaving the door open for Pakistan. After England elected to bat, Bairstow smashed 106 off 99 balls and stitched together a 123-run opening stand with Jason Roy (60) before a middle order collapse. Jimmy Neesham (2-41) was the pick of the Kiwi bowlers, getting rid of danger man Roy in his second over, while Matt Henry also chipped in with two wickets. New Zealand have not qualified for the last four yet but, given their superior run rate, Pakistan would need a freak result against Bangladesh on Friday to leapfrog the Black Caps.

New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson(c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham(w), Colin de Grandhomme, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Matt Henry, Trent Boult

Captains at the toss:

Kane Williamson: I would have liked to bat first too but pitch doesn’t change much here. It is important that we do the job with the ball first-up. Southee and Henry come in place of Ferguson and Sodhi. Ferguson has been outstanding for us in this tournament especially in the middle overs. He has a hamstring niggle. Hopefully, he will recover quickly. Southee is very experienced. It is great that he is on the park for us today.

Eoin Morgan: We will bat first because of pitch and overhead conditions. There is more on the line so there is more excitement. This game is like a QF for us. Victory against India have boosted our confidence. New Zealand are a strong wide we have to play well to compete.
Team News: England retain the same XI for today’s match while New Zealand have got two changes in the team. Tim Southee and Matt Henry are back in the playing XI in place of Lockie Ferguson and Ish Sodhi.

Toss News: A good toss to win for England skipper Eoin Morgan as he opts to bat first against New Zealand in Chester-le-Street.
