Englandhave found themselves in massive trouble against New Zealand in their final group match of the ICC Champions Trophy.
Andrew Strauss's men stunned the cricket world when they won both their group matches against Sri Lanka and South Africa to seal their place in the Semi Finals.
New Zealand won the toss today and elected to field 1st, and Daniel Vettori's men bowled with great discipline on what appears to be a very helpful wicket for the bowlers.
England were bundled out for just 146, Paul Collingwood was there top scorer, with 40 it was a gritty innings from the former England Captain.
There was a moment of controversy during Collingwood's innings, he had just fended off a lethal bouncer from Kyle Mills and then wandered out his crease, and while he did that wicket keeper Brendon McCullum threw down the stumps with Collingwood well short, the 3rd umpires were called for and they ruled Collingwood as out because he was out of his crease.
However Daniel Vettori did not enforce the decsion as there was some doubt as to whether umpire Daryl Harper had called over, before the stumps had been thrown down.
It would take a brave person to Betagainst New Zealand winning this game from here.
