SAN FRANCISCO -- Oh, Buster Posey knew all about how long he had gone without a home run. Discount Old Skool .Yeah, Ive had a few reminders over the last week or two, Posey said with a chuckle.All that talk about the star catchers second-half power drought was answered with one mighty swing in a September game that mattered, and his two-run shot helped the San Francisco Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals 8-2 Friday night in a matchup of playoff contenders.Posey drove in four runs and the Giants stayed four games back of the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers, who won at Arizona. San Francisco maintained its one-game lead over the New York Mets for the leagues top wild card, moving three games up on the Cardinals in the wild-card standings.Left-hander Matt Moore (4-4) allowed two runs over five innings, struck out four and walked three while facing the Cardinals for the first time in his career. He won for the fourth time over five starts in his ninth outing since joining San Francisco in a trade with Tampa Bay.Posey was all smiles in the dugout after his fourth-inning drive, his first home run in 185 at-bats and exactly two months -- he last connected on July 16 at San Diego.It was a good feeling, he said.Posey also had a two-run single and followed up his four-hit game Thursday night with three more.It was great to just see him start smiling and laughing after he touched home plate, Brandon Belt said. Its kind of out of the ordinary with him. Hes pretty stone-faced most of the time. When you know what hes capable of doing and when hes had a stretch like hes had, its good to see.Belt hit a two-run double to highlight San Franciscos six-run third. Posey singled in a pair of runs that inning, when all the runs were unearned off rookie right-hander Luke Weaver (1-3).For the second straight day, Giants manager Bruce Bochy gave his team a late report time to the ballpark and the players went without batting practice. This time, it came on the heels of Thursdays 6-2 victory behind Johnny Cuetos five-hitter.A couple days off the field will serve them well, said Bochy, who is sticking with the same routine for Saturday nights game.It proved the right call again. After a demoralizing three-game sweep by San Diego earlier this week, San Francisco suddenly looks like a playoff team again. The Giants have had World Series-winning seasons in every even year this decade: 2010, `12 and `14.Weavers night was done after 2 2/3 innings and he is winless in four starts since beating Oakland on Aug. 26. He allowed five hits, struck out four and walked two.Yadier Molina drove in both runs for the Cardinals, including a bases-loaded walk in the fifth.We just have to play better, thats all there is to it, manager Mike Matheny said. The standings are the standings and we know what they are. You cant run from them, hide from them. The standings say were right there, so just keep playing the game. Thats all it is. Same as always.Denard Span hit eighth for the Giants again after his strong performance, with a two-run single among his two hits in that spot a night earlier.NINTH-INNING DELAYA fan ran on the field in the top of the ninth and a member of security who slid approaching the man had to be helped off the field with an injury.TRAINERS ROOMCardinals: OF Matt Holliday will face live pitching Saturday with the hope he still might return from a broken right thumb as St. Louis makes a playoff push. The slugger hasnt played since Aug. 11, when he was hit by a pitch in an 11-inning loss to the Cubs. He had surgery to insert a screw for the fracture. Id love to play but I cant do it at jeopardizing putting my finger in a bad situation, Holliday said. Its clearly not 100 percent. Its still fractured but theres a screw in there. Its more stable than it would be if I had not had the surgery. ... SS Aledmys Diaz returned to the lineup after being held out Thursday. He came off the disabled list Sunday after he had been sidelined since July 31 with a broken right thumb, and the medical staff and Matheny are being cautious to determine if Diaz can handle playing every day.Giants: The team activated OF Gregor Blanco from the 15-day disabled list after he missed 22 games with a right shoulder impingement. ... Bochy has been looking to rest Posey and will aim to give him a break in Sunday afternoons series finale following a night game Saturday.UP NEXTCardinals: RHP Mike Leake (9-10, 4.60 ERA), who spent the second half of last season with San Francisco, looks for his second win in seven starts since July 29.Giants: RHP Jeff Samardzija (11-10, 4.07) seeks his first victory in four starts since Aug. 26. He is 4-4 with a 4.61 ERA in 20 career outings vs. St. Louis, losing to the Cardinals on June 4. Wholesale Old Skool . Just not the game.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars say running back Chris Ivory has been released from the hospital and is doing well, but his availability for Sundays game at San Diego remains in question.Ivory was hospitalized Sunday with a general medical issue and missed the season opener against Green Bay. Ivory was limited in three practices last week because of a calf injury, but his hospital stay was for an unrelated issue.The Jaguars (0-1) say there is no timetable for his return.Without Ivory, a 1,000-yard rusher with the New York Jets last season, the Jaguars averaged 1.

EL PASO, Texas -- Heavy hearts because of the death of a teammate haunt the Army Black Knights as they begin a three-game road trip trying to keep their season-opening win streak going. Discount Nike Shoes .These are great kids, and they are remarkably resilient, coach Jeff Monken said. West Point does have a way of preparing all of its people to be able to persevere through tough times. I have no doubt that this team will persevere and prevail through this adversity.Army (2-0) meets UTEP (1-1) on Saturday night in the Sun Bowl with the sudden death of defensive back Brandon Jackson still fresh on the mind. The 20-year-old sophomore defensive back from Queens, New York, was killed in a single-car crash early last Sunday, hours after Army had defeated Rice in its home opener at Michie Stadium.When you lose somebody you love, it is tough. This is no exception, Monken said. Our guys are having a tough time and are reeling right now.This will be the first meeting between Army and UTEP, and Miners coach Sean Kugler knows it will be charged with emotion.I havent dealt with losing a player. I have dealt with a personal loss, Kugler said. Youve got to deal with it in your own way. I cant even come close to speak to how Army is going to deal with that.I know theyll rally around that guy and play their hearts out. In a situation like that, thats all you can do.The Miners, who are coming off a 41-7 loss at No. 11 Texas , will have quarterback Zack Greenlee back in the lineup. He missed the game against the Longhorns and was doubtful earlier in the week with a slight ligament tear in his left knee, a separated shoulder, and a broken finger on his throwing (right) hand. But Kugler said Thursday on his radio show that he expected Greenlee to start.A graduate transfer from Fresno State, Greenlee passed for 229 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions in the Miners season-opening win over New Mexico State.Other things of note when Army travels to UTEP on Saturday night:RUN RUN RUN: Armys triple option ranks fourth in the nation in rushing with an average of 338.5 yards. Andy Davidson leads the team with two straight 100-yard games.KEEPING UP WITH JONES: UTEP tailback Aaron Jones rushed for 249 yards on 31 carries against New Mexico State to open the season and had 123 yards on the ground and scored in last weeks loss at Texas.WHAT TURNOVERS? Plagued more often than not by turnovers, the Black Knights are in unfamiliar territory to start the season. Theyre fifth in the nation in turnover margin at a plus-2.5. Army already has four interceptions, just two less than it nabbed the entire 2015 season. The Black Knights finished 113th (-0.92) in turnover margin last year.ARMY ADVANTAGE? Army has been stationed in El Paso since the border with Mexico was established more than 160 years ago. According to the Texas State Historical Association, after the end of the Mexican War the U.S. needed to defend the new border and maintain law and order, so a military post was re-established on the Rio Grande in January 1854 when the Army rented quarters at a hacienda in El Paso. On March 8, 1854, the official name of the post became Fort Bliss, in memory of Lt. Col. William Wallace Smith Bliss, Gen. Zachary Taylors chief of staff during the Mexican War and later his son-in-law.CONFIDENT CADETS: Despite the tragic death of Jackson, if Army enters the Sun Bowl displaying a good dose of swagger, itll be understandable. Before last weeks win over Rice, the Black Knights hadnt won two straight in a 70-game span and hadnt started a season 2-0 in two decades.Were going to face a 2-0 team that is very confident right now, Kugler said. They are playing energized football. Im sure that theyre thinking they can come down here and be 3-0.---AP Sports Writer Schuyler Dixon in Dallas contributed to this report.---AP college football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Wholesale Nike Shoes For Sale . After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.

The flanker, who has played 65 times for France, is expected to be out for up to four months.Jamie Redknapp is expecting an even but exciting Capital One Cup final on Sunday - and says the performances of Liverpools Philippe Coutinho and Man Citys David Silva will be decisive... Liverpools 4-1 win over Manchester City earlier this season was their best performance under Jurgen Klopp so far. But theyll come up against a different City side in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley on Sunday. Jamie Redknapp joins Ed Chamberlin to preview the Capital One Cup final between Liverpool and Manchester City In November, Vincent Kompany didnt play. David Silva didnt play. Fernandinho didnt come on until half-time, when City were 3-0 down. Sergio Aguero was only half-fit, and substituted after 66 minutes. Now, this City side, in personnel at least, are starting to represent their best line-up again - albeit with the absence of Kevin De Bruyne, who was one of their best players in the Liverpool defeat.Of course, you dont have to be a football expert to realise the importance of Kompanys return. Theyve won 67 per cent of their games with him in the team. That figure drops to 59 per cent when he has been missing. City have kept seven clean sheets from nine Premier League games when he has started and managed just four in the 17 he has missed.If Kompany had been fit for the whole season, Man City would have been comfortably clear at the top of the Premier League. City have also got Silva starting to ease his way back into his game after injury. Aguero is fully fit now and looks incredible. Fernandinhos back. You look at the spine of that team and think, if they go on a long run - which theyre more than capable of doing - you cant really rule them out of anything this season.My biggest worry with City is they just go out and play, without worrying about the opposition. It often seems as though theres no defensive organisation or thought to stopping the other team from playing. Weve got better players, well beat you. But its not always like that in football. Philippe Coutinho ran the show at Man City in November, says Jamie Philippe Coutinho, in particular, is one player theyll have to have a plan for on Sunday.If youre Fernandinho or Yaya Toure, how are you going to stop him? He was a major problem for City at the Etihad, where they couldnt live with him. He ran the game. Key Battle: Aguero v Sturridge Which striker will deliver the Capital One Cup? Now Daniel Sturridge is back in the Liverpool team, too - a player who is always a threat - and he and Coutinho have a great understanding between them. City cant afford to let them combine like they can. Authentic Nike Shoes Cheap. Of course, the same goes for Liverpool - they need a plan to stop Citys main man, Silva. Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho have a great understanding between them. Man City cant afford to let them to combine like they can. Jamie Redknapp The Liverpool midfield have to find a way to hurry him up, stop him from playing at his pace and delivering those passes to Aguero. If they can do that, theyll stand a far better chance. But if Silva dominates the game, keeps finding pockets of space, drifting around the pitch, playing under no pressure, he can be the difference.Its going to be fascinating to see how the two teams deal with the other sides threats. Can Liverpool keep David Silva quiet? Overall, Im expecting an even but exciting game - and one certainly well worth watching.Of course, Klopp will be eager to pick up his first piece of silverware in England - and what a great moment lifting the trophy would be for him in his first season at Liverpool. Winning cup competitions is what Liverpools tradition has been built on and something the fans are desperate for. Jurgen Klopp and Manuel Pellegrini will both be desperate to lift the trophy As for Pellegrini, with this his last season at City, hell be looking to go out on a high, too, and win this competition for the second time in three years.Then there will be the battles all over the park - on top of Coutinho and Silvas clashes with the opposition midfield, Kompany versus Sturridge is going to be box office.And Raheem Sterling is also an intriguing sub-plot. Im sure images of him will be on the back pages of newspapers and at the top of websites on Monday regardless of the outcome - whether its him lifting the trophy or looking dejected while Liverpool fans celebrate. Sterling v Liverpool Paul Merson, Charlie Nicholas and Phil Thompson on whether Sterling can sink old club Liverpool He said he wanted to leave Anfield to win trophies and on Sunday he has the opportunity to do just that. Man City paid £49m for Sterling and these are the occasions when they need him to show up. If Liverpool win, hell undoubtedly get a lot of stick from their fans - but he has made his bed and he has to lie in it.But who will win? Im finding it really tough to call and reckon it could even be a draw in normal time. Then, once it gets to extra-time and penalties, anything could happen. Its one not to miss.  Jamies Sky Bet tip Find out what Jamie is backing in his 22/1 scorecast here.

The Hockey Hall of Fames class of 2013 will immediately set off a fresh batch of debate when it is unveiled on Tuesday. Nike Zoom Shoes From China . The merits of those chosen to join hockeys all-time elite against those that were left to wait another year is an annual pastime that only gets renewed with each new class of honourees. So our question to you: Which four players and one builder would you choose for induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame? There are undoubtedly a number of players in their first year of eligibility that will eventually get the call to the Hall, but only one is an absolute no-doubter: four-time Stanley Cup winner and two-time Olympic champion Scott Niedermayer. The former Devil and Duck did nothing but win throughout his entire hockey career, with pages worth of hardware to pad his resume. There are a number of near-locks, but the class of 2012 may have taught us that theres almost always a chance of omission. Brendan Shanahan - who won three Stanley Cups and scored more than 600 goals and 1,300 points over his 21-year career - was believed to be an automatic Class of 2012 choice, but was passed over in favour of first-year choices Mats Sundin and Joe Sakic and greats-in-waiting Pavel Bure and Adam Oates. A pair of first-year eligible defenders also come with hefty resumes that could likely find them in the Hall come Tuesday: Chris Chelios and Rob Blake. A three-time Stanley Cup champion and Norris Trophy winner, Chelios was a dominant force in his prime and a model of longevity that certainly warrants eventual Hall status. Blake, too, had a lengthy career of 20 seasons, winning one Stanley Cup, a Norris Trophy, several All-Star selections and an Olympic gold medal. From there, the debate opens up. There are perennial All-Stars a-plenty amongst just the first year-eligible players. Rod BrindAmour won a Cup and a pair of Frank J. Selke Trophies and is a member of the 1,000 point club. Paul Kariya was once amongst the NHLs most gifted offensive players, but his career was derailed by concussions. He was still a point-per-game player, finishing with 989 on his career and won a pair of Olympic medals for Canada: silver in 1994 and gold in 2002. Markus Naslund will undoubtedly draw support from Vancouver fans. While his point totals dont stack up to the volume of BrindAmours or the pace of Kariyas, he was still a dominant player in a low-scoring era in the Leagues history.  From there, the waiting list still includes many potentially Hall-worthy names that come into 2013 having already been passed over. There are 17 other players eligible for induction this year that have eclipsed the 1,000-point plateau beyond those already listed here. That list includes a 600-goal scorer in Dave Andreychuk, Olympic- and Cup-champion Theoren Fleury, and another first-time eligible forward in Keith Tkachuk. Phil Housley remains on the outside looking in, despite outscoring all but three defencemen in NHL history. Beyond those names there are some polarizing figures that grabbed headlines regularly throughout their NHL careers. Eric Lindros played 14 injury-plagued seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers, New York Rangers, Toronto Maple Leafs and Dallas Stars and dominated the NHL through his early career. He would net 865 career points in only 760 career games and despite never winning a Cup, played in three Olympics - winning silver in 1992 and gold in 2002 to accompany a 1991 Canada Cup title and the 1994-95 Hart and Lester B. Pearson Trophies. Jeremy Roenick was one of the most colourful players of his generation and - despite also retiring Cup-less - scored 513 goals and 1,216 points in 1,363 NHL games. He was a nine-time All-Star and two-time Olympian, winning silver in 2002. Speaking of international achievement a pair of Russian trailblazers remain on the waiting list in Soviet-era dynamo Sergei Makarov and one of the NHLs first Russian defectors Alexander Mogilny – who is also a member of the 1,000 point club. In the Builders Category, the late Pat Burns and Fred Shero remain strong candidates for induction. Burns is the only man to have won a Jack Adams Award with three different teams and led the New Jeresy Devils to a Stanley Cup. Shero, meanwhile, led the Broad Street Bullies of the 1970s to their only two Stanley Cup victories in addition to a regular season career winning percentage of .612. And the list from there – in both the players and builders categories - goes on and on and on. So which four players and one builder would you choose for induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame? As always, its Your! Call. You can watch the Hockey Hall of Fame announce the Class of 2013 on TSN, Tuesday at 3pm et/Noon pt. Cheap Nike Zoom Training Shoes .

NEW YORK -- It was a terrific night for American track athletes in Rio. Ashton Eaton won his second straight decathlon title, Ryan Crouser set an Olympic record in the shot put, Dalilah Muhammad became the first American woman ever to win gold in the 400-meter hurdles and Kerron Clement won the same race for men.Opening acts, each of them.NBC was waiting for one man, and one man only: Jamaicas Usain Bolt and his attempt to win his third straight Olympic gold medal in the 200-meter run, to match his third straight gold in the 100. Over and over, we saw camera shots of Bolt warming up or just waiting for his race to begin.Eatons achievement was the sort that have put past winners on cereal boxes, the decathlon gold medalist earning the unofficial title of greatest athlete in the world. On Thursday, coverage of his victory seemed strangely muted, even though there was more suspense involved than there was for Bolts race.We get it. Bolts a star, one of the greatest Olympians ever. The spotlight is his oxygen. And he delivered a terrific performance.Yet were not sure if it was the fourth replay of his race, the super slo-mo of him giving his signature pose, his pause to take selfies with fans or his interview wish that hed been faster that made us say, OK, were done. Time to move on.QUOTE: Many people here will be telling their grandchildren they saw the great Usain Bolt in person. -NBCs Tom Hammond.QUOTE: He said he wanted to cement his legacy. I dont think it needed any cement. -Hammond.QUOTE: It rained here. But the only Bolt was on the track. -Hammond.QUOTE: He simply has had no equal in terms of getting it done when the spotlight is at its greatest. -NBCs Ato Boldon.We get it! WE GET IT!WRESTLING: While it was good of Bob Costas to mention wrestler Helen Maroulis upset victory over Japans Saori Yoshida, NBC missed a great chance to show some flexibility in prime-time. Here was a first-time Olympian beating a three-time Olympic champion and winner of 16 straight major titles to become the first American woman with a wrestling medal.

Wise of NBC to lead its night with an update.WATCH OUT: The U.S. womens volleyball team had momentum and experience on its side heading into a fifth-set tiebreaker against Serbia on Thursday, and got out to a quick lead. But analyst Kevin Barnett was worried. They could have been up by 7-2, but the game was closer because of a couple of unforced errors. Keep this in mind, he said. His fears proved realized when the U.S. went on to lose.LACKLUSTER HOOPS: Its a win, thats all that matters, NBCs Marc Zumoff said after the U.S. womens basketball team qualified for the gold medal game by beating France. Such are the standards of a team on a 48-game winning streak dating to 1992 that a 19-point victory is deemed an artistic failure.FORFEIT: NBCs Tim Hutchings wasnt happy to see Javier Culson of Puerto Rico disqualified from the mens 400-meter hurdles for a false start. He could see a racer trying to grab an advantage in a shorter sprint, but didnt think thats what Culson was doing. Its a genuine error, Hutchings said, and I think the rules, frankly, could be more forgiving.RATINGS: With star power dimmed, the audience for NBCs prime-time Olympics coverage sank to its lowest level of the Rio de Janeiro games on Wednesday night by one measure. The Nielsen company said 20.7 million people watched NBC, with the number rising to 22.1 million when cable viewership and online streaming during the same time slot is added. The NBC-only viewership was slightly lower, at 20.6 million, on the first night of competition on Aug. 6, but adding in the additional Olympic content on other sources brought the total to 23.5 million. No matter how you measure it, thats significantly lower than the 29.1 million who watched the London Games in 2012 on the corresponding night.---Follow David Bauder at twitter.com/dbauder.

HONOLULU -- Its all about the preparation for Chinwe Okorie and it paid off nicely for her Sunday. Air Jordan 1 Retro Cheap .Okorie scored 12 of her season-high 18 points in the first half as No. 7 Mississippi State pulled away from Hawaii 66-41 on the final day of the Rainbow Wahine Showdown.The 6-foot-5 senior center shot 8 of 10 from the field and grabbed seven rebounds.Honestly, even before today we prepared really, really hard for games up front and just being in this championship game was an opportunity for us to see how much we need to grow, said Okorie, who averaged 12 points and 7.3 rebounds in Mississippi States three games in Honolulu.Bulldogs coach Vic Schaefer praised the play of the Lagos, Nigeria nativeChinwe had a monster game, so I was proud of her, Schaefer said. Shes come a long way. If you could have seen her three years ago, she couldnt walk and chew gum at the same time, so shes really made big strides.Victoria Vivians, the tournaments most outstanding player, scored 10 points for the Bulldogs (7-0).It was the lowing scoring output of the season for Hawaii, which shot just 32 percent from the field and 17 percent (2 of 12) on 3-pointers.Mississippi State opened the game with an 11-0 run and led by as many as 24 points.Sarah Toeaina and Briana Harris had 11 points apiece for the Rainbow Wahine (2-5).Mississippi State held a 33-19 lead at halftime.BIG PICTUREMississippi State: The Bulldogs, who returned all five starters and 90 percent of their scoring from a season ago, did well to build depth in their three games in Honolulu. All 13 players that saw court time scored in an 88-51 win over San Jose State Saturday and all 13 played at least two minutes against Hawaii Sunday.I wanted to work on building our depth and building some of the kids confidence and we were able to do that and obviously thats going to pay off for us down the line, Schaefer said.Hawaii: The Rainbow Wahine, who have dropped three straight games, posted a 21-win season and went to their first NCAA Tournament since 1998 last year, but returned just two starters from that team. Against the veteran-laden Bulldogs, they started three freshmen, a sophomore and a junior.Im not worried about the three (losses) in a row, Hawaii coach Laura Beeman said. Its about our overall record, its about us getting better, which we did tonight.TURNING POINTHawaii took its only lead at 15-13 on Julissa Tagos layup with 8:44 left in the second quarter.

The greens will get firmer and firmer.First-round leader Vijay Singh followed his opening 66 with a 75 to drop into a tie for eighth at 1 over.I didnt hit that many fairways, Singh said. It was a lot windier today. I got some bad breaks, didnt putt as well. But all in all, I managed. I didnt play as bad as what the score reads.Defending champion Jeff Maggert also was 1 over after a 71. He won last year at Del Paso in California.

The conditions also have worked in their favor, with the course playing hard and fast.Some of us have aged way different than others, he said.Im extremely arthritic so the heat is good for me. It keeps me loose so Im kind of enjoying it. But, boy, at night were cramping no matter how much you drink. Everybody got beat down a little. Its just tough physically to go through that out there.John Daly had an 81 to miss the cut. He had three double bogeys, six bogeys and a birdie.

England reached the semi-finals of the World T20, in which they will play New Zealand on Wednesday, with a 10-run win over Sri Lanka in Delhi.Morgans side have already exceeded their performances at the 50-over World Cup, where they failed to get out of the group. Win World T20 or be forgotten Trevor Bayliss says England must win title or be forgotten And the captain has been surprised at the rapid progress the team has made since their dismal displays at that tournament 12 months ago.Ive been asked the question a couple of times and I cant quite believe where we are in terms of our 20-over cricket and our one-day cricket, he said.The guys weve selected have done outstandingly well and have shown a great attitude playing against very good sides who knock you back. Coming into this tournament we talked about emulating the fashion in which New Zealand played in the World Cup and the aggressive nature in which they went about their game, particularly with the ball. Eoin Morgan Every question that has been asked of us we have given a counter answer or a more aggressive option.Morgan felt the one-day international series against New Zealand last June was vital to the teams transformation, primarily because it helped provide a blueprint for the new aggression in the teams bowling attack.The New Zealand series was very important. Coming into this tournament we talked about emulating the fashion in which they played in the World Cup and the aggressive nature in which they went about their game, particularly with the ball.Their swing bowlers were outstanding and that encourages a positive mind set throughout everything that you do - with the bat it can come more naturally. They did play a key part for us, absolutely.Morgan was not always part of a team that needed to overcome the odds or play catch-up in the shortest format.In 2010 he was a key member of the England side that, albeit briefly, became market leaders by winning the World T20 in the Caribbean.He is the sole survivor from that vintage though the man who lifted the trophy, Paul Collingwood, is part of the coaching staff, an omen that has not gone unnoticed in the camp.And, looking around a buoyant dressing room, it is not the only parallel Morgan recognises. Eoin Morgan insists that England arent looking past their World T20 semi-final against New Zealand I see a few actually, he said.The main one would be how relaxed everybody is around the group. How much they are enjoying the challenge of playing international cricket at the moment and their hunger to win.It is all right having fun and enjoying what you are doing but if you dont have that inner drive to want to improve and win games of cricket you are going to stand still for a long time. This side has shown strengths which are similar [to 2010].England (probable): A Hales, J Roy, J Root, E Morgan (capt), J Buttler (wkt), B Stokes, M Ali, C Jordan, D Willey, A Rashid, L Plunkett.New Zealand (possible): M Guptill, K Williamson (capt), C Munro, R Taylor, C Anderson, G Elliott, L Ronchi (wkt), T Southee, M Santner, M McClenaghan, I Sodhi.Watch England take on New Zealand in the semi-final of the ICC World Twenty20 from 1.30pm on Wednesday, on Sky Sports 2.
