New Zealand stand in between England, semis spot

That day in Wellington and subsequent early elimination was a watershed for England, who beat New Zealand the following summer as they began the transformation that now sees them a win away from the Trophy semi-finals.

"They were one of the favourites going into the (World Cup) tournament and proved that against us that day in Wellington", the England skipper said.

Another victory in Tuesday's match, which starts at 10:30 BST, would put them into the Champions Trophy last four, after New Zealand's game with Australia on Friday was abandoned because of rain.

Morgan, who came through the ranks with Finn at county side Middlesex, said: "I'd have no hesitation in playing him tomorrow (Tuesday) if we felt it was the right thing to do".

Steven Finn has been named as the man to replace the injured Woakes and Morgan has backed the 28-year-old to deliver in Cardiff. We have a completely new team, pretty much, and hopefully we're moving forward. "You only build confidence by producing performances and winning games. Two years ago, New Zealand had a lot of confidence and we didn't".

Worldwide leaders responded by reaffirming their commitment to the agreement, even if the U.S. backs away. Solheim said with the Paris Agreement, the globe has seen the emergence of a more positive debate.

But England matched that aggressive approach during a subsequent 2015 home one-day worldwide series that saw them emerge 3-2 winners over New Zealand. We come into this tournament full of confidence. The weather could have a say in the match proceedings as well.

England have selection issues to finalise, and were not helped by Monday's persistent rain which kept them indoors and the pitch under full cover.

England chose to leave out Adil Rashid in the opening encounter and it won't be a surprise at all if the leg-spinner comes into the playing eleven for this game. Pacer Steven Finn has been named as replacement.

If England keep faith in Ball, who conceded 82 runs in exchange for one wicket against Bangladesh, then it becomes a straight fight between Finn and the left-arm seamer David Willey for the final place in the team.

The all-rounder bowled seven against Bangladesh and Morgan said: "He came through it again the other day, bowling more than we intended. So if that continues, there's a chance he could bowl ten overs".

They also called for Israel to ease restrictions on the entry of books, clothing, food and other items from family members. Students in many European universities have started relay hunger strikes in support of the Palestinian prisoners.

The second, in central London on Saturday, happened within a mile of the hotel some England players were using rather than travelling home between matches.

Players have been given individual briefings by Reg Dickason, the England team's head of security, and Morgan said: "The guys are chatting about it constantly because it's not very far from where we stayed". "I think we sort of proved that in Leeds [during the ODI vs South Africa] after what happened in Manchester. But certainly within our team there's no concerns".

Morgan might also bring back leggie Adil Rashid to add more variety to the bowling department.

New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Luke Ronchi (wicketkeeper), Kane Williamson (captain), Ross Taylor, Corey Anderson, Neil Broom, Jimmy Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Tim Southee, Trent Boult.
