David Willey201718.5043000
2.1 to MJ Guptill, aims a punishing blow down the ground... but he's misjudged the line and nicks through to Buttler! Willey hits back with a counter punch and England have their first wicket, the dangerous Guptill taken out early. This was full in the channel, went on rather than swung back, took the outside edge of the toe and that's enough to stub Guptill out. 17/1
Chris Jordan402416.00123020
16.3 to LRPL Taylor, full on off, tries to heave it over the off side... Brilliant from Morgan, takes the catch diving to his right! There'll be no Rosco special, forced to try and get going straight away, it was too full to hit over the infield but was still travelling pretty quickly, dipping on Morgan as he leapt forward to take it a couple of inches from the ground. 134/4
Liam Plunkett403819.5094110
13.2 to C Munro, slung down well outside off, Munro gives chase... and slices it h-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-g-h straight to third man! Another key breakthrough for England, Munro was flying but Plunkett has lassoed him to the ground, clearly a plan to try and frustrate him and a wild hack went straight to Moeen walking a few yards in from the fence. 107/3
Adil Rashid403308.2583120
Ben Stokes402636.50112110
17.3 to L Ronchi, low full toss, sends it straight down the throat of long-off! Ronchi throws his head back in disgust, Stokes bags the fifth England wicket and the lead weights around NZ ankles tug a little more insistently. 139/5
17.4 to CJ Anderson, another full toss miscued into the Delhi sky... and Jordan swallows it on the run round from long-off! Stokes has two in two, he's going to be on a hat-trick and the set Anderson is gone into the bargain! Full toss, maximum reward for Stokes. 139/6
19.2 to MJ Santner, tries to hit on the up - and sends it straight into the safe hands of Jordan at long-off! Third wicket for Stokes, NZ struggling to get away as England wrap them up in a chokehold. Santner had the right idea, to hit inside out, but lacked the muscle or timing. 150/7
Moeen Ali201015.0051000
10.3 to KS Williamson, tossed up, Willamson takes it on... and sends a skier to mid-off... where it's taken by Moeen Ali, the very same! Nerveless catch from Mo, who's taken one look at Kane and said "My beard's bigger than yours, son". Huge top edge on this attempted slog-sweep and it was the bowler who tracked it back towards the edge of the circle to make sure of the dismissal. 91/2

8.2 to AD Hales, picks out long-on! Will that spark New Zealand? Hales gets underneath a full delivery and can't find the required distance as he goes down the ground. Simple catch.. 82/1
Ish Sodhi4042210.5054200
12.1 to JJ Roy, gone now! Any hope for NZ? Comes down the pitch, aims through the leg side, misses a straight delivery. Perhaps stayed a touch low.. 110/2
12.2 to EJG Morgan, first ball! Sodhi on a hat-trick. Well, well. Another golden duck for Morgan as he plays rounds a full delivery which straighten on him. Hitting middle of middle.. 110/3
