length ball, square driven in the air, times it really well but there's a man out at deep point who takes the catch and England have won. It was back of a length wide of off stump, McClenaghan swung at it and caught it really nicely but the fielder at deep point was in the perfect place
That wraps up this series, England have won and have improved significantly but have plenty to think about ahead of the Champions Trophy. New Zealand are in better shape and look a good bet yet again to cause a few surprises. We don't have long to wait for the Champions Trophy because it begins tomorrow. India v South Africa is the opener in Cardiff, full coverage, as ever, across ESPNcricinfo so make sure you stay tuned in and my colleagues will have live coverage from 10am BST tomorrow. But from Trent Bridge, from Gnasher, Monty and myself Alex Winter, it's goodbye.
Presentation time, Jos Buttler MoM? The umpires, as ever, are up first. They're getting pens for their efforts. How many officials are there!?! Man of the Match, who gets the champagne, goes to Jos Buttler for his thrilling hitting at the end of the innings that could have rescued England's Champions Trophy campaign? Butterflies n'all. Man of the Series is Martin Guptill for the most runs ever in a three-match bilateral ODI series. He has been superb.
"The win was very important and we thought we played pretty well," says the winning captain Alastair Cook. "We haven't got it right this series, we're almost there but if you're not 100% you get beaten but we showed character and the different side worked today. We're lucky to have two spinners, very different spinners too and they could play together."
The New Zealanders get their series-winning medals, even Colin Munro gets a medal! Brendon McCullum, back to a runner-up today, says: "Today we were good for the majority of the game but two periods cost us: Jos Buttler's innings and losing 4 for 20 odd through the middle. But we showed that if we continue to execute our plans we're a good side. Overall we'll take confidence form this series into the Champions Trophy." McCullum's lifts the NatWest Trophy and the Kiwis spray the champers.
But this series has belonged to New Zealand. Despite defeat here they have shown the world what a useful one-day side they can be and have batsmen and bowlers in form ahead of their Champions Trophy campaign which starts on Sunday. The main plus for them has been the form of Martin Guptill. His power-hitting has been a joy to watch and has led the innings really well, allowing Ross Taylor and Brendon McCullum in particular to play around him. That is a dangerous trio if they get going.
England have fought back well here and have won by 34 runs. The key really was Jos Buttler, whose 47 in just 16 balls lifted England's mood, gave them a solid total they have defended comfortably with Steven Finn and Stuart Broad back. They needed something after two hammerings and have dusted themselves down to take victory here, only a consolation, but plenty of positives to take into the Champions Trophy, which for them starts on Saturday against Australia.
swung into the off side, Broad dives at mid-off and can't quite hold on, diving to his right with one hand, got to it but couldn't hang on
length ball just outside off, swung at outside off and missed
Can Steven Finn finish it off? He's on from the Radcliffe Road End...
Very nice over...
slower ball, very nice, Mills came down the wicket to it but was outfoxed and in the end fended at it and missed outside off
little straighter and pushed through square leg
slower ball on off stump, blocked in the end having initially been deceived
full and wide, driven nicely to extra cover
full and just outside off, Mills throws the bat at it and get it down to long on, they consider two but McClenaghan slips
slower ball outside leg stump, Mills had stepped away and in the end just blocks it
Still alive here New Zealand, if only they could have kept some wickets in hand...
hit and run to extra cover, out with a hit, Bopara misses
a big slog into the leg side, deep midwicket scrambles well and skirts the boundary but saves four
down the track again, meets it on the full and pushes back to the bowler
step down the wicket and a big shot over mid-off, gets it all the way over the rope, big shot
a reverse paddle sweep, played with the back of the bat! Outrageous, didn't bother turning the bat and gets it fine of point
big stride down the wicket and a big heave across the line, doesn't get it and find deep midwicket
down leg side, wide surely, no? Must have clipped the pad
fuller ball, pushed at just outside off, squirts off a thick outside edge and it's saved at backward point
pushed at just outside off, it runs off an inside edge to short long leg
back on a length, blocked up the wicket
whoops, a beamer, McClenaghan gets it off the handle of the bat trying to get well out of the way, immediate apology from Bopara
