Williamson century not enough to see Black Caps home

The Westpac Stadium

Preview: New Zealand won the toss and elected to bowl against England as they go into the third one-day worldwide in Wellington on Saturday all square.

They had the stuffing knocked out of them when Chapman, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls and Colin de Grandhomme fell like ninepins after a solid platform.

Brief scores: England 234 in 50 overs (Eoin Morgan 48, Ben Stokes 39; Ish Sodhi 3-53) vs New Zealand.

The fourth ODI will take place on Tuesday evening.

But it still ended up a last-ball thriller with Kiwi captain Kane Williamson unable to hit Chris Woakes for the boundary he needed to tie the match.

New Zealand had been comfortable at 80-1 in the 18th over with Colin Munro on 49 and Williamson on 28 before Stokes then produced his catch at cover to dismiss the opener off Rashid.

Williamson rebuilt the innings in a determined partnership of 96 for the seventh wicket with Mitchell Santner.

Jos Buttler (29) and Moeen Ali (23) scored at strike-rates of 126 and 121 respectively, whilst Chris Woakes (16) and Adil Rashid (11) also played their part in posting a testing score.

But Curran made sure New Zealand still needed 15 off Woakes' final six balls and, despite lashing a six over deep square leg, Williamson could not get them over the line.

But Santner was unfortunately run out for 41 when Woakes got his hand to a straight drive from Williamson and deflected the ball back onto the stumps, leaving the all-rounder stranded and New Zealand 199 for seven with 4.4 overs remaining. New Zealand were smart and clinical in their victory in Hamilton and England sloppy, but at Bay Oval, the tourists oozed energy and intent to comprehensively defeat the hosts who were oftentimes self-destructive. NZ have won only once in five recent matches at Westpac Stadium.

The duo added 68 runs between them and laid a solid foundation in the chase before the spinners came into operation.

Morgan was the first man to show any mastery of the pitch, reaching his 48 from 71 balls with three fours and a six one of only two sixes in the innings. Colin de Grandhomme, bowling his middling medium pace, took 1-24 from 10 consecutive overs. The third ODI is an opportunity for Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and Moeen Ali to contribute to the cause as well.

"This is kind of why we chose to bowl - we weren't sure how the wicket would play".

'My plan was to bowl tight and the wickets just came, we built pressure through dot balls. Here, it was just enough.'A brilliant game of cricket' - what they saidEngland captain Eoin Morgan to Test Match Special: "It took us a while to get going and it felt like we were batting with the wrong end of the bat".
