    Jason Roy blitzed 78 off 43 balls to power England to a crushing seven-wicket win over New Zealand and a place in their second World Twenty20 final. [b]Authentic Jesse Puljujarvi Jersey[/b]. Roy crashed 11 fours and two sixes in a phenomenally powerful innings to dominate a first-wicket stand of 82 in 8.2 overs with Alex Hales (20), before Jos Buttler (32no off 17) crunched successive straight sixes off spinner Ish Sodhi, then another off Mitchell Santner to propel England past their victory target of 154 with 17 balls to spare.The openers maiden T20I fifty, which came up in a flash off 26 balls, was the second fastest fifty by an Englishman in a World T20 - just one ball slower than Eoin Morgans half-century in 2012 against the West Indies.It followed an exceptional display of death bowling from Ben Stokes (3-26) and Chris Jordan (1-24) that helped restrict previously-unbeaten New Zealand to 64-7 from the last 10 overs of their innings, meaning they finished on a below-par 153-8.England will face either West Indies or hosts India in Sundays final at Eden Gardens - their first final appearance since the title-winning campaign of 2010. Ben Stokes and Chris Jordan did Eoin Morgan proud New Zealand - yet to reach a World Twenty20 final - flew out of the blocks as Martin Guptill pocketed two fours off David Willeys opening over only for the left-armer to hit back in his next, finding the edge of the openers bat on the drive.Adil Rashid dropped the toughest of chances around the corner offered by Kane Williamson (32) on two, off Liam Plunketts first ball, and for eight overs it appeared it might be a costly miss.New Zealand didnt hit a six until the eighth over, when Williamson went inside-out to strike Stokes over the off-side; Colin Munro (46) followed suit in the following over, reverse sweeping Rashid for a midwicket maximum - adding seven fours for good measure in a powerful 32-ball knock. Kumar Sangakkara and Michael Atherton discuss Englands semi-final win over New Zealand and the performance of Jason Roy. At 92-1 just past the midway point, New Zealand seemed set for a colossal score but the innings began to unravel when Williamson skied Moeen Alis third ball, the spinner running back to take a good catch.Three overs later Munro chased a wide Liam Plunkett delivery, splicing it to third man, and Ross Taylor - who never settled - picked out Eoin Morgan in the covers.That wicket and three runs came off Jordans third over - the 17th of the innings - and he completed a fine set of four after Stokes had picked off Luke Ronchi and Anderson with successive full tosses in an 18th over costing just five. Nasser Hussain called Englands World T20 semi-final win over New Zealand the complete performance. In total New Zealand added just 20 runs in the final four overs of the innings, Mitchell Santer holing out before Stokes fielded off his own bowling to run out Mitchell McClenaghan off the final ball.England nearly eclipsed that particular tally in the first over of their chase as Jason Roy plundered four boundaries off Anderson, throwing his hands at any width.A crunching cut off Adam Milne helped swell the total to 23-0 off two and Alex Hales joined battle by pumping McClenaghan over long on for the first six of the innings.The introduction of spin brought little respite for New Zealand - Roy powering Santner down the ground for four after the 50-run stand had come up off 26 balls, before tickling his eighth four of a pulsating innings to fine leg. Jason Roy picked up the Man of the Match award after his 78 helped beat New Zealand in the first World T20 semi-final. Hales, having survived a stumping chance on 19 off Grant Elliott, mowed Santner to long and England then endured a wobble as Eoin Morgan fell lbw first ball after Roy advanced but missed a straight one from Sodhi.Roys rampage, though, meant the required run-rate was barely six-an-over as Buttler and Joe Root (27no off 22) came together - both batsmen happy to deploy the reverse sweep to manoeuvre the field around and make Englands progress a formality with Buttler in merciless mood.Watch highlights of England against New Zealand on Sky Sports 2 from 7.30pm, then get The Verdicts reaction from 8.30pm.
