Jason Roy blitzed 78 off 43 balls to power England to a crushing seven-wicket win over New Zealand and a place in their second World Twenty20 final. Fredrik Claesson Jersey . Roy crashed 11 fours and two sixes in a phenomenally powerful innings to dominate a first-wicket stand of 82 in 8.2 overs with Alex Hales (20), before Jos Buttler (32no off 17) crunched successive straight sixes off spinner Ish Sodhi, then another off Mitchell Santner to propel England past their victory target of 154 with 17 balls to spare.The openers maiden T20I fifty, which came up in a flash off 26 balls, was the second fastest fifty by an Englishman in a World T20 - just one ball slower than Eoin Morgans half-century in 2012 against the West Indies.It followed an exceptional display of death bowling from Ben Stokes (3-26) and Chris Jordan (1-24) that helped restrict previously-unbeaten New Zealand to 64-7 from the last 10 overs of their innings, meaning they finished on a below-par 153-8.England will face either West Indies or hosts India in Sundays final at Eden Gardens - their first final appearance since the title-winning campaign of 2010. Ben Stokes and Chris Jordan did Eoin Morgan proud New Zealand - yet to reach a World Twenty20 final - flew out of the blocks as Martin Guptill pocketed two fours off David Willeys opening over only for the left-armer to hit back in his next, finding the edge of the openers bat on the drive.Adil Rashid dropped the toughest of chances around the corner offered by Kane Williamson (32) on two, off Liam Plunketts first ball, and for eight overs it appeared it might be a costly miss.New Zealand didnt hit a six until the eighth over, when Williamson went inside-out to strike Stokes over the off-side; Colin Munro (46) followed suit in the following over, reverse sweeping Rashid for a midwicket maximum - adding seven fours for good measure in a powerful 32-ball knock. Kumar Sangakkara and Michael Atherton discuss Englands semi-final win over New Zealand and the performance of Jason Roy. At 92-1 just past the midway point, New Zealand seemed set for a colossal score but the innings began to unravel when Williamson skied Moeen Alis third ball, the spinner running back to take a good catch.Three overs later Munro chased a wide Liam Plunkett delivery, splicing it to third man, and Ross Taylor - who never settled - picked out Eoin Morgan in the covers.That wicket and three runs came off Jordans third over - the 17th of the innings - and he completed a fine set of four after Stokes had picked off Luke Ronchi and Anderson with successive full tosses in an 18th over costing just five. Nasser Hussain called Englands World T20 semi-final win over New Zealand the complete performance. In total New Zealand added just 20 runs in the final four overs of the innings, Mitchell Santer holing out before Stokes fielded off his own bowling to run out Mitchell McClenaghan off the final ball.England nearly eclipsed that particular tally in the first over of their chase as Jason Roy plundered four boundaries off Anderson, throwing his hands at any width.A crunching cut off Adam Milne helped swell the total to 23-0 off two and Alex Hales joined battle by pumping McClenaghan over long on for the first six of the innings.The introduction of spin brought little respite for New Zealand - Roy powering Santner down the ground for four after the 50-run stand had come up off 26 balls, before tickling his eighth four of a pulsating innings to fine leg. Jason Roy picked up the Man of the Match award after his 78 helped beat New Zealand in the first World T20 semi-final. Hales, having survived a stumping chance on 19 off Grant Elliott, mowed Santner to long and England then endured a wobble as Eoin Morgan fell lbw first ball after Roy advanced but missed a straight one from Sodhi.Roys rampage, though, meant the required run-rate was barely six-an-over as Buttler and Joe Root (27no off 22) came together - both batsmen happy to deploy the reverse sweep to manoeuvre the field around and make Englands progress a formality with Buttler in merciless mood.Watch highlights of England against New Zealand on Sky Sports 2 from 7.30pm, then get The Verdicts reaction from 8.30pm. Erik Karlsson Jersey . Mitch Holmberg added a goal and three assists. Connor Chartier also scored for the Chiefs (3-0-0). Luke Harrison spoiled Garrett Hughsons shutout bid with a power-play goal at 13:17 of the third period. The Spokane goaltender finished with 28 saves, including a Brandon Fushimi penalty shot in the second period that would have tied the game 1-1. Daniel Alfredsson Jersey . Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move. "Im looking up at the board and hes got two hits given up and one run, and Im taking him out after the fourth inning," Roenicke said. . Burris threw two TD passes, including a key 15-yard fourth-quarter strike to Bakari Grant that effectively countered a Toronto comeback bid and led Hamilton to a 33-19 victory. DENVER -- Bud Black really has no radical or revolutionary ideas about how to reliably pitch in the thin air at Coors Field.Just an age-old concept.You know what works here? Good pitching and making pitches and getting outs, Black said Monday after being introduced as the manager of the Colorado Rockies. Thats what we have to do. I dont think we have to change anybody. Weve got to make guys better. And these guys are pretty good to start with.Black signed a three-year deal to take over for Walt Weiss, who stepped down last month when his contract expired after four years in charge of the Rockies. They finished 75-87 last season, their best record since 2010.The 59-year-old Black is revered for his pitching acumen. Understandably, he views the game through a pitchers eyes and knows this park is filled with difficulties for a staff.Its just a different game here than other spots, Black said. But its still baseball. ... Im not planning anything unconventional. I like the conventional. I like good, solid starting pitching, a good, solid relief core. That works anywhere.Black knows this park well after serving as manager of NL West rival San Diego for 8 + seasons before being fired in June 2015. He compiled a 649-713 record for the Padres and was voted NL Manager of the Year in 2010.With the Rockies, Black inherits a potent offense that includes a batting champion in DJ LeMahieu, sluggers Nolan Arenado and Carlos Gonzalez and rising star Trevor Story.Not that hes going to offer them much advice. Instead, hell stick with what he knows best -- pitching.After a major league career that spanned 15 seasons on the mound, Black became a respected pitching coach for the Los Angeles Angels. He brings a wealth of experience to a team thats long struggled to get outs in Denver, which is a mile above sea level.Colorado as a team had a 4.91 ERA last season, tied with Cincinnati for 13th out of 15 National League teams. Arizona (5.09) was the only club that was worse.But the Rockies feature a young and talented rotation led by Jon Gray.The first order of business will be shoring up a bullpen that blew 28 savees last season. Chris Wideman Jersey. .Were aware of where were at and where we need to get to, said Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich, who also stressed the importance of adding a first baseman. Buds experience and his expertise absolutely adds into that, and lends to us to being better than we have been recently on the bump.Over the years, Colorados kept a close watch on the development of teams such as Kansas City, Cleveland, Houston and St. Louis. Good pitching, clutch hitting, lights-out bullpen -- theyre trying to emulate that sort of blueprint.We try to be in tune with them as much as possible, Bridich said. Theres a difference between talented and good. We have talent. The next step is to become a good team -- a good and consistent team.Bridich interviewed quite a few internal and external candidates before tabbing Black as the seventh manager in franchise history. He got a thumbs-up from owner Dick Monfort, who made a list of eight or nine qualities he wanted to see his next manager embody.I went down that list and checked a lot of them off (with Black), Monfort said. Ive always watched him manage at San Diego. He seems to be a tough guy. He understands the game, obviously has a lot of experience. I think that fits well.On a recent visit to town, Black had a meeting with the Rockies staff in a stadium suite. Hanging on the wall was a picture of Colorado players celebrating with former Rockies outfielder Matt Holliday after he scored the winning run during a 2007 play-in game to beat Black and his Padres. The Rockies rode that wave of momentum all the way to their only World Series appearance.But there was a little bit of controversy about whether Holliday actually touched home plate on his winning slide in the 13th inning. Black weighed in with his opinion.To this day, I dont think hes touched it, joked Black, who posed for pictures Monday right next to home plate. That was a good group. ... Were going to do everything to get back to where this team was in 2007. Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap NFL T-shirtsWholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '
