England ended New Zealand’s unbeaten run, and their title hopes, following a comprehensive seven-wicket win in Delhi on Wednesday (30 Mar).

Jason Roy was the highest impact player, and batsman, of the first semifinal. Scoring nearly 50% of the target, and at a very fast pace ( Strike Rate Impact ), his effort alone put paid to New Zealand’s ambitions. His 44-ball-78 had Partnership-Building Impact (highlighted by an 82-run opening stand with Alex Hales) and Chasing Impact . It was the highest impact performance of his T20I career.

Ben Stokes was the highest impact bowler for his three top/middle-order wickets. He had the second-highest Economy Impact in the match, behind Chris Jordan. The pair were extremely effective in stemming the flow of runs as New Zealand threatened to post a big total.

Colin Munro’s 32-ball-46 saw him finish as New Zealand’s highest impact player. His innings came under pressure (following the early wicket of Martin Guptill) and had Partnership-Building Impact (for his 74-run stand for the second wicket with Kane Williamson).

Based on each side’s performance, England had a 128% higher impact than New Zealand in the match – indicative of how thoroughly New Zealand were outplayed. England had eight players with a Match Impact of more than 1 (minimum impact for a performance to not be deemed as a failure). New Zealand, in stark comparison, had only five such players.
