England in New Zealand T20I Series - 1st T20I

New Zealand v England

England won by 40 runs

3.4

Hira to Hales, OUT, well bowled, holds this one back, it's a fraction slower, Hales comes down the pitch but loses his shape as he aims over the leg side and McCullum completes a neat stumping. Spin works, as it often does

AD Hales st †BB McCullum b Hira 21 (14m 16b 2x4 1x6) SR: 131.25

England 29/1   MJ Lumb 3* (6b)   RM Hira 0.4-0-4-1

7.6

Ellis to Wright, OUT, gone! This time they hold one. A little fortunate for New Zealand as it was another length ball, Wright connected cleanly but slotted it straight to deep midwicket

LJ Wright c Hira b Ellis 42 (16m 20b 3x4 4x6) SR: 210.00

England 89/2   MJ Lumb 21* (12b 1x4 2x6)   AM Ellis 1-0-18-1

8.4

McClenaghan to Lumb, OUT, good piece of bowling, banged in a short and Lumb went for the pull but it loops off the glove could to send a simple catch to short fine-leg

MJ Lumb c Rutherford b McClenaghan 22 (35m 15b 1x4 2x6) SR: 146.66

England 91/3   EJG Morgan 1* (1b)   MJ McClenaghan 2.4-0-14-1

15.5

Hira to Morgan, OUT, Taylor holds one! And has a wry smile about it. Morgan loses his shape as he tries a booming drive and the ball loops to cover

EJG Morgan c Taylor b Hira 46 (32m 26b 4x4 3x6) SR: 176.92

England 172/4   JM Bairstow 35* (18b 3x4 2x6)   RM Hira 3.5-0-41-2

17.5

Boult to Bairstow, OUT, well, that's a rare sight today. A ball fails to clear long-on. Back of a length again, Bairstow played another flat-batted pull and found Guptill with precision

JM Bairstow c Guptill b Boult 38 (36m 22b 3x4 2x6) SR: 172.72

England 194/5   JC Buttler 19* (8b 1x4 2x6)   TA Boult 2.5-0-27-1

18.3

Ellis to Patel, OUT, good catch from the captain. Patel gets a big top edge as he aims over the leg side, goes straight up and McCullum moves around from his position to take the chance

SR Patel c †BB McCullum b Ellis 2 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

England 197/6   JC Buttler 20* (9b 1x4 2x6)   AM Ellis 2.3-0-35-2

19.2

Boult to Broad, OUT, oh, well done Brendon. That was superb. This time it's Broad who gets a big top edge and it goes straight behind McCullum who turns and chases it. Almost goes to far, in fact, but holds on

SCJ Broad c †BB McCullum b Boult 4 (5m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

England 203/7   JC Buttler 22* (11b 1x4 2x6)   TA Boult 3.2-0-29-2
