That just about wraps things up for this match. I'll now hand over to my colleagues for the Sri Lanka-West Indies contest. From myself and Alan Gardner thanks for joining us and see you soon.

Stuart Broad "It was nice to bounce back. Steven Finn set the tone with the new ball. The wicket was a lot drier and it did turn a bit. We now have a huge game on Monday. We still have areas to improve."

Ross Taylor "I thought it was a decent score but no enough at the end of the day. We had our moments but we could capitalise on them."

Luke Wright is named Man of the Match: "It was a very important win, we are very chuffed. I love batting with Morgan, he's so chilled out there. I think Steven Finn should have been here with the way he bowled."

I'll bring you some news from the presentation shortly as we wait for the start of the second match between Sri Lanka and West Indies. Narine v Mendis?

"Taylor made the same mistakes as AB yesterday, under-utilising their spinners," says Din.

"What on earth happened to Southee's yorkers today?" asks Andy. Answers on a postcard, please.

So comfortable for England in the end, winning with an over to spare in Twenty20 is the sign of a perfectly-paced run chase. Vettori and McCullum were good with the ball, and Franklin with the bat, but that wasn't enough for New Zealand. It means they are on the brink of going out of the tournament, but England are still very much alive with a game to come against Sri Lanka on Monday.
