7.20pm Phew. I might have mentioned this before, but in case I didn't - what a game. What. A. Game. The perfect finish too, New Zealand drawing level to 2-2, which leaves all to play for for both teams in the fifth and final ODI in Christchurch on Saturday. Do join us for that, and keep sending in your feedback. Until then, it's goodbye from Chandan, Varun and me.
Ross Taylor: "[This innings is] right up there [among my best], I think. It was nice to be there at the end. I thought I batted quite well in Hamilton, but I wasn't there at the end. Got a bit of cramp. It was good to have all those partnerships. You've just got to give yourself a chance, set those little goals along the way. You can't win it in the first 10 overs, but you certainly can lose it. It looked like England would get 360-380 at one stage, so our bowlers did well to keep them down. I was about a 110 or 120, physio came out and asked if I wanted to stay in or come out. I'm glad I stayed in. I couldn't run any twos, so I didn't want to put any pressure on the other guy. So I had a go, and hit a couple out of the screws. The way Nicholls batted and finished it off - you don't want to panic in that situation. It's my birthday tomorrow, and I was like, "damn it, I can't drink tomorrow." I've got a nice bottle of red, but if I have any chance of playing [the fifth ODI], I can't drink any of it tomorrow."
Kane Williamson: "Great game of cricket. With the ball we were put under pressure and didn't execute well in the first half. It was a wicket where, once you got in, you could really score quickly, which they showed by getting to 260 so quickly. Ross - after a tough start, he got himself in and played his best one-day knock. One of the best of all time. A few niggles, hopefully nothing serious."
Eoin Morgan: "A beauty of a game. I'm sure everyone was thoroughly entertained. A high-scoring game, and a magnificent wicket. I thought there was more moisture at the toss. I would have done exactly what Kane did. We got into a really commanding position. We lost 4 for 20 or 25 which we cannot afford to do. 335 was a good score, but we would certainly have liked more. We're lucky enough to bat quite deep, and we usually go hard in that situation. We didn't manage to do it today. New Zealand bowled well. We thought the period between the end of our innings and the start of New Zealand's innings was the best time to bat, and we did well to create chances then. Usually, when someone gets injured, they go hard earlier, and offer more chances. Ross didn't do that. He went hard earlier, and took the game away from us."
Ben: "Wow... this is why I love cricket. So many things can happen. England sets huge total..*groan* NZ lose 2 quick wickets..*groan* then after a slow start thing got real exciting. Great job guys."
Farooq: "Great match and great innings from Taylor. But please, the greatest ODI inning belong to Gibbs for that infamous chase of 443." -- That's a debate for later - let's celebrate LRPL Taylor now.
Usman Khan: "It's Taylor's birthday tomorrow. He just gifted himself an advance birthday gift"
7.03pm Ross Taylor has just played one of the great ODI knocks to win one of the great ODI chases. The University Oval is up on its feet as he walks towards the rope, and his teammates spill into the ground to embrace him. What a player. He walked in, remember, with the score 2 for 2 in the third over. He finishes unbeaten on 181 off 147 balls, and the last third of his innings was made on one leg.
Don't forget New Zealand's other contributors too: Kane Williamson, Tom Latham, Colin de Grandhomme and Henry Nicholls right at the end. And what about that man Ish Sodhi and his career-best 4 for 58? England seemed on course to get 400, at one point. They ended up with 335.
Four balls to go. Three runs to get. Ross Taylor is off strike. What a match.
Three to win from the last over. Tom Curran to bowl. Over the wicket to Nicholls.
Abubakr Arshad: "Worth pointing out that we are witnessing one of the great one day innings of all time." -- Absolutely.
Just five to get. Taylor needs six to beat Shane Watson's record for the highest score in an ODI chase. Can he do it in one hit?
What's happened here? Taylor's holding his right forearm now!
13 off 12. Can Woakes rediscover his accuracy?
Dickson: "This vein of form for Taylor is an absolute treat. He and Williamson are our Mahela and Sanga, and we have been dying for a pair like them since forever."
