England in New Zealand T20I Series - 3rd T20I

New Zealand v England

England won by 10 wickets (with 44 balls remaining)

3.3

Broad to Rutherford, OUT, first one gone, short ball works. Banged in on leg stump, 143kph which is lively and a good line, Rutherford gets into tangle as he tries to pull and the ball loops off his glove to short fine-leg

HD Rutherford c Dernbach b Broad 11 (13m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

New Zealand 17/1   MJ Guptill 6* (11b)   SCJ Broad 1.3-0-7-1

9.3

Tredwell to BB McCullum, OUT, well caught! Key wicket. McCullum tries to go over midwicket with the slog sweep but it comes off a bit of a top edge, miles into the air, and Bairstow steadies himself expertly at deep midwicket. Would have been six in the previous two matches

BB McCullum c Bairstow b Tredwell 26 (24m 20b 3x4 0x6) SR: 130.00

New Zealand 62/2   MJ Guptill 25* (27b 1x4)   JC Tredwell 1.3-0-13-1

10.5

Root to Taylor, OUT, gone! Tries to repeat the short and picks out deep midwicket where Bairstow is lurking again. Superb bowling from Root, he held this one back, it was about 15ks slower, and he did Taylor in the flight. Impressive nerve

LRPL Taylor c Bairstow b Root 6 (4m 4b 0x4 1x6) SR: 150.00

New Zealand 70/3   MJ Guptill 27* (31b 1x4)   JE Root 0.5-0-7-1

14.2

Dernbach to Elliott, OUT, good catch at third man, England have caught well this series. Short outside off stump, Dernbach tries to ramp it fine of third man but Finn makes good ground to his left. He didn't really go through with the shot.

GD Elliott c Finn b Dernbach 15 (11m 12b 0x4 1x6) SR: 125.00

New Zealand 95/4   MJ Guptill 37* (40b 1x4)   JW Dernbach 1.2-0-10-1

15.2

Broad to Munro, OUT, short ball works again, ordinary from Munro. Well-directed on middle and leg, Munro plays an ugly attempt to pull over the leg side and a top edge loops gently to Root trotting to his left from backward point

C Munro c Root b Broad 1 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

New Zealand 99/5   MJ Guptill 40* (43b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 2.2-0-9-2

18.5

Broad to Guptill, OUT, short again, a wicket again. Guptill gets into a tangle as he tries to work this to leg and gets a top edge that Broad takes easily. Not a free-flowing innings, he never hit top gear. The value, or otherwise, will become clear a little later

MJ Guptill c & b Broad 59 (77m 55b 2x4 1x6) SR: 107.27

New Zealand 128/6   JEC Franklin 7* (9b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 3.5-0-15-3

19.2

Dernbach to NL McCullum, OUT, Buttler doesn't need to throw this one because there's an edge on it. McCullum moving to leg to try and get it through the off side but can only guide it into the gloves

NL McCullum c †Buttler b Dernbach 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 130/7   JEC Franklin 7* (11b 1x4)   JW Dernbach 3.2-0-27-2

19.6

Dernbach to Franklin, OUT, neat catch off the final ball, trying to go over the off side and can't get it further than cover moving back from the edge of the ring

JEC Franklin c Tredwell b Dernbach 15 (25m 14b 3x4 0x6) SR: 107.14

New Zealand 139/8   IG Butler 1* (1b)   JW Dernbach 4-0-36-3
