ENGLAND’S T20 World Cup dream is still alive after a nail-biting win over New Zealand.
Jos Buttler plundered 73 off 47 but a late collapse saw his side finish on 179-6 from their 20 overs.
Sam Curran and Chris Woakes removed New Zealand openers Finn Allen and Devon Conway early but Kane Williamson and Glenn Phillips led the fightback for the Black Caps – helped by some poor fielding.
But New Zealand were always behind their nine-per-over run rate required.
And some clutch death bowling, especially by Curran, limited the opposition to 159-6 and ensured a much-needed win in Brisbane.
