England win by 40 runs with a very impressive all-round display. The batting from the top six was outstanding as they piled up their record T20 total, then the bowlers adapted well to the short straight boundaries with some smart bowling. A major difference, though, was the fielding with England taking some excellent catches. Twenty20 can turn around quickly, but New Zealand have some work to do before Hamilton on Tuesday. I'll bring you the presentation shortly.

Brendon McCullum "We were outplayed by a better team but have two days to turn it around. It was a really poor day in the field and you can't afford that in any form of the game, especially with the power they have. We have to be a bit smarter, we allowed them to hit to the short boundaries too often."

Stuart Broad "The freedom the guys played with today was fantastic. It was great to see. I think we learnt a lot by batting first on it, probably not a bad lost to lose. To be able to get such a high score, we re delighted. We knew we didn't need to over-strike the ball and think too much about the short boundaries. From a personal point of view to pick up wickets when it matters, and lead the side, is pleasing. But it doesn't matter who gets the wickets. I thought some of the catches were fantastic."

That just about wraps things up from me for the day. David Hopps will have his report ready shortly for your reading pleasure. Enjoy the rest of the your weekend and we'll be back on Tuesday for the second match of the series from Hamilton.

rapid, well-directed, bouncer and McClenaghan gets taken on the helmet then the ball flies over the keeper

Farhan: "This performance by England just goes to show that even if a ground is really small, you still have to hit them out of the ground!!! Something that England did but not New Zealand!!"
