Joe Giacomelli: Easy to forget some excellent bowling from England with Moeen Ali and death bowling from Ben Stokes & Chris Jordan.

Dean McShane: Great performance England. True MotM performance from Chris Jordan. Fine at-the-death bowling. Best Yorker in WT20.

Luke Gregory: Great performance by England. Shows the importantance of getting Guptill out early.

Man of the match Jason Roy talking to Sky Sports: "There is no better feeling. The joy on everyone’s faces was special and something that will stay very close to my heart for rest of my career.

"Again Jordan and Stokes were outstanding. They practice their skills more than I have ever seen someone practice so it is so good to see them reaping their rewards on the pitch.

"Milne is pretty sharp isn’t he? I played some strong shots, hit some boundaries then got out and we won, now we’re in the final.

"At the moment we don’t really care. We will take on whoever."

What a win. @JasonRoy20 unreal innings. 🏏🏏 well played brother and to the team!!

By the way, Jason Roy's 78 in the second highest score in a World T20 semi-final, behind only Tillakaratne Dilshan's 96 not out in 2009.

More from England captain Eoin Morgan: "Making a final is the kind of thing you dream of as a kid. Everyone in the dressing room has worked tremendously hard and made a lot of sacrifices to put us in this position. 

"A lot of things have gone our way and we have earned the right to play the way we do and hopefully it can be our day in the final."

Am I right in thinking that only one of this England XI (Morgan) has ever played a match in the IPL. Not everything, is it?

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson: "Credit to the England bowlers for the way they pulled it back. 

"I knew we were a bit short in our total but we were beaten by the better team who bowled better than us and came out and batted very aggressively. 

"We weren't able to stem their runs and it was a fantastic knock from Jason Roy."

England captain Eoin Morgan: "I don’t think it could have been much better. Maybe we would have liked to start better with ball.

"We did well to peg it back and to get Kane's wicket in middle was a big deal for us."

Will Holmes: This England come back is absolutely astounding. Great news, the final is gonna be great

Rhys Bowen: World T20 finalists, not bad for a country without franchise cricket. Maybe its not the answer after all!

Charlotte Lavin: What a win! Well done lads. Controversial maybe, but drop Morgan and bring in Vince.

The skippers are being interviewed. Eoin Morgan still hasn't taken his pads off. I'm not sure I've ever seen that before.

"Jason Roy's simplicity, in the way he sets himself up and waits for the ball, that's what I like. Some players get stuck trying different positions but he doesn't. And he's got such a good opening partnership with Alex Hales."

Man of the Match Jason Roy: "I think we bowled really well. They have a hugely dangerous line-up and I just went out and tried to get the team off to a good start and it came off for me tonight.

"I just felt it was a chance to go out and get us off to great start. It was one of those totals that can be dangerous, I gave it a crack and it came off.

"I just looked for the runs that we needed and knocked them off. If you think about it (being in a semi-final) then it can be to your detriment."

Full scorecard

Fantastic performance by England. Buttler hit 23 off the last 5 balls. NZ got only 20 off the last 4 overs. Well done the bowlers...#WT20

This means we will definitely have a two-time winner of the World T20 - the first time that has happened. It also means the World T20 champions won't have gone through the tournament unbeaten, meaning it's still never happened.

Vic Marks

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"You feel for the Kiwis. They have had a perfect tournament and got to this one match when they have been absolutely stampeded."

Now, really, who gave England a chance after they conceded 229 against South Africa? Or when they were getting spun out by Afghanistan? Now, they are one game away from the trophy.

Jonathan Agnew

BBC Test Match Special

"We don’t know who England will play but frankly it doesn’t matter because how they played today they could beat anyone."

Vic Marks

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"You never get the perfect game but this is as close as England have got, certainly in this tournament. You have to give credit to Stokes and Jordan and then Jason Roy was sensational."

England win by seven wickets

Won with a six! England have absolutely steam-rollered New Zealand, previously the only unbeaten team in the tournament. England reach a World Cup or World T20 final for only the second time in 24 years.

The perfect game! Won the toss, bowled well, took chances, had some luck, caught NZ on an off day and Roy lashed it! Final time! #WT20

Eng 153-3

One bizarre overthrow, Buttler diving back to beat a throw from bowler Sodhi. This one is all but toast.

Jonathan Agnew

BBC Test Match Special

"The ball disappeared into the stand. That was a bruising blow.

"And another one! Buttler has said 'I'm not messing around.'"

Eng 152-3

Six more! Two to win!

Eng 146-3

Leggie Sodhi, he of two-in-two-ball havoc, is back, only to be reverse-swept, then pulled for four by Root and Buttler respectively. Then Buttler down the ground for six! Almost there...

Jason XI

Jason 'Lucius Malfoy' Isaacs. I don't think he's quite got the hang of it, but we need a 12th man #bbccricket

"Surely, surely England can see it through from here. I don't really see what options Williamson has got unless England have an aberration."

Eng 131-3 (need 23 from 24)

Grant Elliott, an incredibly handsome beard, on to continue the tradition of fiddly New Zealand medium pace. Chris Harris, Gavin Laursen, you know the type. Drop and run from England, before Buttler reverse-sweeps the first four in three overs. This chase is under control. Only wickets will change that.

Vic Marks

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"England have got their sensible players at the crease. Even though Buttler is capable of fireworks he plays the situation rather than goes with the flow."

Eng 124-3 (need 30 from 30)

Mitchell Santner's left-arm tweak, bowling to Root in the battle of the babyfaces. I suspect neither of these men own a razor. England opting to do it singles. Only three from it, but tension not rising. Yet.
