6.50pm: Right, thanks for your comments today, I'm going to wrap this up. Gnasher's report is locked and loaded; we'll be back to see if New Zealand can keep using England as wallpaper in the final ODI at Trent Bridge on Wednesday. Cheerio!

6.35pm: Time for the presentations... England captain, Alastair Cook: "Yeah, tough day, obviously huge credit to New Zealand. They really batted us out of the game. We bowled pretty well until the 42nd, 43rd over but New Zealand built a huge platform, kept wickets in hand and when you've got a guy on 100 not out and Brendon McCullum, it's very hard to stop them. When we managed to get a few dots on Guptill he managed to find the boundary. With the extra man in the ring, a lot of runs flew down to third man but they earned that. We were trying to grab wickets because we know how important they are. [Lacking Broad and Finn] would be too easy an excuse and probably does New Zealand a disservice but we need to look at our plans for the Champions Trophy. Not sure if [Broad and Finn] will be fit for Trent Bridge. Fours years unbeaten at home is a good record but credit to New Zealand, they were better."

New Zealand captain, Brendon McCullum: "Thank you, it's an extremely proud moment, credit to Martin in these two games and also Ross Taylor, he's been outstanding with the bat. Clean hitting is what Martin does and he did it again today. I didn't think it was a 360 surface, maybe 300-320 wicket. The way England batted, if we weren't able to pick up those wickets they were a live chance. We decided to bat first and you've got to post something to defend. The intent Martin and Kane Williamson showed at the start, they got us into a position. I had a bit of fun at the end but I was just a passenger in the Martin Guptill show. It's been really pleasing after the Test series, we're an experienced one-day unit and we're hard to beat. When the Champions Trophy rolls around we've got to play as well as we can. You can channel your energy into your fielding and running between the wickets, something we have to do and it's a good sign of the team's attitude."

Martin Guptill is named Man of the Match: "It's pretty special, I didn't expect that at the start of the day. I just wanted to go on as long as I could. The Test wasn't ideal but I've turned it around. I don't really know what a good score on any wicket is but I just tried to start partnerships and put pressure on the opposition. You never know, you can get a pearler or nick off early so you've got to take each ball as it comes."

6.30pm: England are flat on their backs on the canvas, sides heaving, lycra threatening to burst, with New Zealand sitting squarely on their chest - the Black Caps have won the series, 2-0 up with one to play, ending England's unbeaten run at home, which stretched back to 2009. A second consecutive defeat sees England drop to fourth in the rankings, while New Zealand are up to seventh. After upsetting South Africa in their backyard in January, they've done it again and in some style. Nevermind England, maybe New Zealand should be favourites for the Champions Trophy.

McClenaghan to Dernbach, OUT

hoicked into the off side, Dernbach trying to put the ball into orbit and getting it almost as far as the circle, where mid-off nearly misjudges it, probably from looking away over the horizon, before flopping forward to take the decisive catch and confirm an 86-run win for New Zealand

That's ends a 47-run partnership at almost ten an over. Here's Jade Dernbach, England's ace rabbit in the hole

McClenaghan to Anderson, OUT

McClenaghan hits this time, full and straight and back goes middle! Good bowling to a tailender, pitched up and tailing in towards the wicket as Anderson made room, sneaked under the bat and physics did the rest

James Anderson b McClenaghan 28 (25m 19b 4x4 0x6) SR: 147.36
McClenaghan to Anderson, no run

oof, how did that miss? Searching for the yorker, Anderson swung and missed and the ball passed a fraction wide of off stump

McClenaghan to Trott, 1 run

length deliver, dribbled short into the covers for a single

McClenaghan to Trott, 2 runs

pushed into the covers, they head back for a second and the throw nearly decapitates McClenaghan at the non-striker's end

Another change, McClenaghan back on. England's target is below 100
