Morgan collects the trophy, the champagne has been popped out and the players pose for the photographers. Paul Farbrace applauds from the change room. Time for England to celebrate after a dismal World Cup. They have New Zealand'ed New Zealand to take the series 3-2. Do tune in for the one-off T20 on Tuesday. Until then, goodbye from all at ESPNcricinfo.

Sam Billings: Most people wrote us off, credit to Bairstow. We have more depth in our squad. He has done it for Yorkshire. We just hung in there and got a partnership together. This series has been a fantastic advert for ODI cricket.

Billings is off to sign autographs.

Eoin Morgan, the victorious England captain: It will sink in, in the next few days. Jonny Bairstow was incredible. Everything that has happened this series is stuff we had strived for. The attitude and skill level has been high against a quality side like New Zealand. The support at Durham has been magnificent. It wasn't only me, it was a huge squad performance. There is a great feel-good factor around at the moment and we will look to take it to the Ashes.

Brendon McCullum, New Zealand captain: It has been a tremendous series. The Test matches were keenly fought, the cricket here has been nothing short of sensational. They [England] have some amazing talents and will be a tough team to beat. Credit to England. They held their nerve under pressure when the series was on the line. We are hurting to have come second but the new talents did well for us. I am really excited. Cricket in our country is in a good space. Credit to England for being the better team. If England had lost the game, they would have felt unlucky. Somebody has to win, the other has to lose.

Kane Williamson, Man of the Series: It was an unbelievable series. The way England played was outstanding. Full credit to them, they deserved it. We played alright as well. Overall, it has been a great series to be part of. I am trying to just form partnerships and I was happy to contribute throughout the series. Good batting surfaces and made for great viewing.

Jonny Bairstow, Man of the Match: It has been fantastic to come back in, it was been wonderful and special. Disappointing for Jos but I was happy to make a contribution. These guys have worked very hard. We knew we had three overs of Powerplay. I am pleased with the way am playing in four-day cricket, ODIs and T20s. I worked hard in the winter and Caribbean and had a pretty tough family time, with my grandpa passing away.

Presentation time:

7:30pm What a turnaround from England... Bairstow swipes his bat in the air and lets out a big roar. The two Yorkies hug each other. Plenty of hugs exchanged in the dressing room. Bairstow - the hero - raises his bat and acknowledges the cheers. The boisterous crowd lapping this up.

The top order went down swinging after persistent rain delayed the start of the chase. England were reduced to 40 at 4. Enter Bairstow. The hosts soon stumbled further to 44-5. The replacement keeper set to work with Billings and staged a recovery with an 80-run stand before Bairstow, aided by Rashid, muscled the hosts home. Santner began brightly, but reprieved Bairstow on 56 at deep third man; New Zealand were left stunned by the counterattack. Thrilling end to a thrilling series, where 3151 runs have been pillaged, the highest ever in an ODI series of five or fewer games.

S. Zahir: "The best ODI series I have witnessed in last few years. Thoroughly enjoyed as a neutral."

RonnietheKiwi: "Don't blame debutant Mathieson, the leader Southee had a an underwhelming match... and series."

Chandra: "With just this innings Bairstow takes his avg from 23.8 to 40.4. Superb effort."
