Wright back on track for England
2:30pm Saturday 29th September 2012 in General Sport
Luke Wright and Steven Finn starred in a much-improved all-round performance as England beat New Zealand by six wickets to put the defence of their ICC World Twenty20 crown back on track.
After Wright's runs and Finn's wickets at Pallekele, Stuart Broad's team are likely to need another success against hosts Sri Lanka when they return on Monday if they are to book a trip back to Colombo for the semi-finals.
Finn took three for 16 and then Wright (76) engineered a well-drilled chase - achieved with seven balls to spare - meaning England have at least given themselves a second chance after their defeat against West Indies at this same venue two days ago.
Hampshire's Danny Briggs, making his first appearance of the tournament, took 1-36
