  1. Goodbye

    Right, time to wrap it up after an exhilarating day of cricket in which England have finally produced the superb ODI performance that we were all wondering whether they were capable of. Joe Root and Jos Buttler were superb with the bat, and Adil Rashid and Steven Finn starred with the ball, and the result was England's biggest ever ODI win.

    Can England keep the feelgood factor going? Join us on Friday at 12:00 BST for the second ODI to find out. Until then, goodbye.

    England debutant Sam Billings on Twitter: Is every game like that??? Not a bad debut, awesome day! @josbuttler @joeroot05 @AdilRashid03 unbelievable! #taaaap

  3. Player reaction

    England all-rounder Adil Rashid on Sky Sports: "I thought we played exceptionally well as a team. I chipped in with a few runs so that gives you confidence with the ball. You go through ups and downs in cricket and that obviously affected my cricket in all forms. I was probably a bit immature in 2009 and I've changed my mindset and become a more positive cricketer. I don't think I could have asked for a better day today, I hope I can carry it on. Today was a special day for this young team we've got and hopefully now we can kick on to the Oval and repeat what we've done."

  4. Man of the match

    Jos Buttler

    England batsman Jos Buttler is named man of the match for his innings of 129 off 77 balls.

    He says: "With 400 on the board we could be attacking and the pressure was on them. It was a pleasing win and gives everyone confidence going forward.

    "There was a game within a game there [at 200-6]. Brendon used a lot of his frontline bowlers to try and get me and Adil out but we saw that out and it allowed us to attack later in the innings.

    "The way we started the innings gave us plenty of time. Credit to Joe Root on the way he played. It gave everyone confidence to follow his lead.

    "Adil bowled fantastically well. He spins it both ways and has great control with very attacking fields."

    Michael Vaughan

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    "What you've seen today is that you can change mindset quickly with players and a coach who want it. England got well beyond par. It was only a few weeks ago in the Caribbean and I heard people saying Adil Rashid was unselectable. Well today he has come in and done exactly what he has been doing for Yorkshire. I can't remember seeing an England one-day performance as good as that."

    Kevin Ticehurst: That is the start of a promising new era for our ODI side. Exactly what the doctor ordered after the World Cup debacle.

    Andy Donley: It's the British thing to do to overhype success and castigate failure. Let's be patient now and see where it leads.

    Guy Giles: Hate to be negative, but one performance proves nothing. It's a start and that's it. Hope there's more to come.

  7. Captain's reaction

    England captain Eoin Morgan: "It was certainly a different performance to the World Cup. For us to come out of the traps like that is outstanding. I'm as surprised as anybody given we have two or three new faces in the team, but they held themselves brilliantly and the senior players were outstanding.

    "The key is consistency for us. It was brilliant from Adil Rashid, he spins the ball both ways and that's a very valuable asset to have in the side. The guys executed really well today.

    "You can look back and say what you want about the World Cup, but I'm looking forward. There's about 90 games until the next World Cup and we need to get some games into this team, and the more we can win that carries some weight."

    Michael Vaughan

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    "Every single player who is out there today could play in the World Cup. Joe Root went up a gear today. Jos Buttler has done it again. Morgan played like he did two years ago. He was busy. Opposition teams have always hit it harder than England but today England hit it harder and you saw what it did to the New Zealand fielding."

    Mike from Liverpool: This is the type of English cricket the public can get behind!! The passion in particular showed by this group of players is exactly the way to get people falling in love with English cricket in all forms!! Well done!!

    Ash Stockton in Taunton: Who are these blokes and what have they done with the England team?

    Mark in Chipping Sodbury: New Zealand will have to take a long hard look at their approach after this match. They need to start playing more like England.

  10. Captain's reaction

    New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum: "It was a special performance from Root and Buttler. To post 400 in any game is outstanding. They blew us off the park.

    "You have to admit when you get it wrong at the toss. The second innings makes you realise we got it wrong. But that takes nothingh away from England, who put on a complete performance.

    "First of all, I thought we did well to get back in the game. To get 200-6 after 30-odd overs I thought we might be chasing 250. But they chanced their arm nicely, played with no fear and took back to initiative. We could have tried a few more tings but overall we need to be better. We knew they would play like that, we just didn't think they'd get 400. I think this is the way both teams will play this series. The margins could be great with the style both teams are playing.

    "Tim [Southee] should be fine next match. It was just after the workload of the Test he was a bit sore. We had to be a bit careful."

    Sean West: What a sensational performance from England, love the new look squad!

    Maddy Raman: Goes to show the talent's always been there. It's the confidence & positivity that's been missing from this team.

  12. Match review

    Well, what a stunning performance. England have raised the curtain on their new era of one-day cricket in some style. They have absolutely thrashed one of the world's best teams in this format.

    They were fantastic with the bat in racking up their biggest ever total of 408-9, with Joe Root stroking a quickfire century and Jos Buttler bludgeoning an ever swifter ton. Adil Rashid and Eoin Morgan played superb supporting roles as New Zealand's much-vaunted bowlers were humbled.

    That took the pressure of their bowling performance, but this was still a display not to be sniffed at. Steven Finn and Adil Rashid, two players whose international credentials have frequently been questioned, were brilliant, claiming four wickets apiece to defuse a potentially explosive batting line-up.

    As for New Zealand, well they were desperately disappointing. They desperately missed Tim Southee and Daniel Vettori, and will have to improve quickly before the second ODI on Friday.

It is remarkable for those of us who saw that performance at the World Cup. It wasn't that long ago. That is a really emphatic win. And what is most important is that they have convinced themselves they can play this way."

    NZ 197-8

    'Sweet Caroline' booms out on the Edgbaston tannoy. Indeed, good times have never seemed so good. Mitchell McClenaghan is the new batsman for New Zealand, and he's away with a clipped two through midwicket. Nathan McCullum needs a new bat, so we'll have a drink.

  21. Text 81111

    Josh in Bedford: Seen enough from Rashid in nine overs to know he must start in Cardiff. MATCH WINNER!

    Adil Rashid is knocking them over like ducks at a fairground shooting gallery. Again it's the googly which does the damage, flummoxing Matt Henry and smashing into this front pad. Up goes the finger.

    Matt Henry is the new man, with Nathan McCullum having arrived at the other end. Tell you what, how good is it to see Steven Finn bounding in with a bit of confidence again.

  25. WICKET

    Taylor lbw b Finn 57 (NZ 190-7)

    Steven Finn celebrates

    Clipping leg stump is the verdict of DRS, and Taylor has to go. Good delivery from Finn, full and straight, and Taylor played all around it. Good knock from Taylor, but he surely takes New Zealand's slender hopes with him. The Edgbaston crowd is rocking.

  26. Umpire review

    Finn raps Taylor on the pad. Given out on the field, Taylor requests another look...

  27. WICKET

    Ronchi b Rashid 0 (NZ 185-6)

    Adil Rashid celebrates

    Gone! First-baller for Luke Ronchi, and Adil Rashid is flying here! Tossed up, spins back in, beats the swish of Ronchi and crashes into the top of off. What a match the Yorkshire all-rounder is having.

  28. WICKET

    Santner c Jordan b Rashid 15 (NZ 185-5)

    Adil Rashid bowls

    It was coming. Santner decides he has to force the pace against Rashid - he gets one out of the middle and yammers it down the ground, but the next one is off the edge and is safely snaffled by Jordan at slip.

  29. Post update

    Alec Stewart

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    "With the power play still to come it will be interesting to see what New Zealand do. Will they leave it until Ronchi might be in? If they leave it too late it will simply be too much for them."

  30. NZ 179-4 (run rate 6.62)

    Santner is dealing in singles here, which is no good to New Zealand. He's a bit like a young fawn caught in the headlights of a speeding freight train as he confronts this imposing target. However, New Zealand are only 11 runs behind where England were at this stage of the innings.

  32. NZ 173-4 (Taylor 52, Santner 8)

    Rashid, who is having an absolutely outstanding match, beats Santner first up with a terrific googly. The next wrong 'un lands a bit short and is picked by the debutant, who cashes in with a much-needed four.

  33. NZ 166-4 (target 409)

    Ross Taylor plays a shot

    Taylor is going to be OK to carry on. Santner is struggling a bit here - he can only muster a single from the remaining four balls of Stokes's over. New Zealand can't afford for him to take time to get going.

  34. NZ 165-4

    Ross Taylor is going to get a bit of treatment here. He was turning to make his ground when Eoin Morgan unleashed a shy at the stumps and it hit Taylor on the hand. That looked like it hurt, the glove comes off and Taylor is wringing his mitt.

  35. NZ 163-4 (Rashid 7-0-35-1)

    Debutant Mitchell Santner is the new man. He's off the mark with a nudge into the leg side off Rashid.

    Elliott run out (Billings) 24 (NZ 160-4)

    Ben Stokes bowls

    This is silly. Very silly. New Zealand get an extra ball when Stokes sends down a wide off his sixth delivery, but instead of milking a bonus single, they inexplicably decide to turn for a suicidal second. Elliott is run out by miles when Billings sends in a sharp throw to Buttler..

  38. 50 for Taylor

    NZ 158-3

    Ross Taylor plays a shot

    An ugly misfield from Eoin Morgan at mid-off gives Grant Elliott a cheap four. Taylor cheekily sweeps past fine leg for four, then brings up his fifty off 46 deliveries with a single down the ground. But then...

    BBC Sport at Edgbaston

    General view at Edgbaston

    "A really beautiful evening at Edgbaston now, the whole ground in sunshine, bar a shadow that is just beginning to creep across the outfield. There are rather more empty seats than before, perhaps those children on school trips have gone home. The DJ keeps pumping the tunes - how do you decide the soundtrack to an ODI? 'Tell you what, I'll keep Mr Brightside by the Killers until Grant Elliott is batting'."

  40. NZ 148-3 (Taylor 45, Elliott 18)

    Strange game this. I've not had the impression that New Zealand have batted that well, England have seemed to keep a lid on the boundaries, and yet the Kiwis are still going at close to seven an over. Rashid is smashed miles into the air by Taylor for another four. He reacts with the perverse delight of a macho wildlife presenter when a crocodile takes a snap at him, smiling at having coaxed Taylor into a wild stroke.

  41. NZ 141-3 (target 409)

    Ross Taylor plays a shot

    Ben Stokes is in to the attack. Taylor decides to sneak a run to Chris Jordan in the covers, and almost pays for it as the electric Jordan snakes out a tentacle and almost throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end. Taylor, who is just beginning to move through the gears, then slams Stokes back down the ground for a one-bounce four.

  42. NZ 133-3 (run rate 6.65)

    "Let's bowl him through the gate, Adil!" shouts Jos Buttler, somewhat giving the game away. Rashid obliges with a ripping googly which spins back inside the shot of Elliott and just over the stumps. Buttler, whose idea it was in the first place, is taken completely by surprise and clanked on the helmet.

  43. NZ 130-3 (Taylor 33, Elliott 13)

    Suddenly, Ross Taylor is roused from his slumber. He seizes on a good-length ball from Plunkett and drills it to the fence, and then next ball he goes one better and smacks him over cow-corner for six. Good over for New Zealand, they needed that.

  44. Post update

    Jonathan Trott

    Former England batsman Jonathan Trott on TMS: "In one-day cricket, on fast outfields, you don't necessarily have to play big shots to score at a high-tempo, especially with the fielding restrictions. You can catch up quite quickly with the scoring but if you lose wickets it kills you."

  45. NZ 116-3 (target 409)

    Big appeal as Ross Taylor completely misses with a sweep and is struck on the pad by Rashid. England decide against a review and rightly so - the ball pitched outside leg. Rashid is bowling nicely though, he and Plunkett have dried up the runs here.

  47. Drinks break

    NZ 113-3 (Plunkett 4-0-23-0)

    Elliott wears a sharp bouncer from Plunkett on the shoulder. Frustration for the New Zealand batsman as they are starting to struggle to find the boundary, the extra pace of Plunkett making him difficult to get away. Just three from the over, and time for drinks.

    Adil Rashid bowls

    Jen de Polo: Well done Adil! Can't understand why he hasn't played more for England in last 5 years.

    Merlyn: Few dots and Adil claims a wicket. Get. Him. In. The. Test. Side.

  49. NZ 110-3 (Taylor 17, Elliott 11)

    Rashid is settling in here. He foxes Grant Elliott with a googly and gets him to inside-edge one perilously past his stumps. Decent over, seven from it.

  50. NZ 103-3 (target 409)

    Grant Elliott, the hero of New Zealand's World Cup semi-final win over South Africa, strides to the crease. He will need to outdo even that remarkable innings if New Zealand are to get close here. He gets off the mark with a tip-toed, flat-bat shot past backward point for four. Plunkett's riposte is a good one, whistling one past the outside edge.

  51. Post update

    Michael Vaughan

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    "It was nice bowling from Rashid and a good running catch from Joe Root. That's the difficulty for New Zealand, when you are chasing a target like this if you go two balls without a boundary, you can't just nudge and nurdle."

  52. WICKET

    Williamson c Root b Rashid 45 (NZ 94-3)

    Joe Root celebrates with his teammates

    Rashid strikes! That's what he's in the team for - tossed up, inviting Kane Williamson into the big shot, the batsman doesn't connect cleanly and Joe Root streaks in from the boundary at long-off to collect the catch. England right on top now.

  53. NZ 92-2 (run rate 7.07)

    Plunkett is hoicked into the leg-side outfield for a couple. Alex Hales fields serviceably to raucous chants of 'Hales! Hales!' A few sundowners being imbibed in the stands I reckon, and why not? Better over from Plunkett, just five from it.

  54. Post update

    Michael Vaughan

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    "I will interested to see what pace Rashid bowls. In one-day cricket I always think he is a better bowler when he gives it some flight. This is a big series for him. Moeen Ali has struggled and if Rashid has a good series, England may take a gamble on him in the Ashes."

  55. NZ 87-2 (Williamson 42, Taylor 9)

    Kane Williamson jumps over bowler Adil Rashid

    Now then, we're going to get our first look at the bowling of Adil Rashid. He batted superbly, what can he do with the nut? It's a slightly erratic first over, not quite finding a consistent line and length, and New Zealand know they have to target him. Williamson does just that, reaching for a wide one and lofting it over mid-off for four.

  56. NZ 79-2 (target 409)

    Thanks Phil. Eoin Morgan has shuffled his pack and brought Liam Plunkett into the attack. Plunkett's first three deliveries are on the money, but the fourth is overpitched and Williamson punches it back down the ground for four. Another delivery, slightly wider, gets the same treatment, not quite as well-timed this time but it beats mid-off and trickles away to the rope.

  57. NZ 70-2

    Chris Jordan bowls

    Jordan's fifth over - which goes for just two - completes an action-packed first 10 of the New Zealand innings. And with that, I hand you back to Mr James Gheerbrant.

  58. Email

    Salim in Toronto: If 10 runs have already been scored in the first five balls when chasing 400+, the ideal thing to do is to watch the run rate and keep it ticking, not try to bash every ball. Six runs an over for the first 15 overs or so would be fine with wickets in hand. McCullum did what he did in the World Cup final, did not settle down. Costly wicket, England definitely ahead.

  59. NZ 68-2 (Run-rate 7.55)

    Finn is within one ball of another maiden, but Taylor swings hard at the last and diverts the ball up and over the keeper and down to the boundary for four.

  60. NZ 64-2

    Oh, so close! Taylor looks to pull a short ball from Finn and almost drags on to his own stumps.

  61. NZ 64-2 (Taylor 2, Williamson 26)

    Kane Williamson plays a shot

    One thing you can be certain of, New Zealand will not take a backward step. They will continue to go on the assault in their pursuit of this huge England total. Williamson leans forward and punches Jordan's first ball through extra cover for four before flicking the fourth off his pads and down to the fine-leg boundary. England have removed two big danger-men, but this Kiwi side is packed to the rafters with them.

    Calum Nicholson: Turned on the cricket to see NZ needed over 8 an over after 3 gone. Thought it must have been a mistake.

  63. NZ 53-2 (Target 409)

    In keeping with this new attacking edge to England, they have a man at silly mid-on and silly mid-off as Finn charges in to deliver to Williamson. The pressure is on the tourists.

    Martin Guptill plays a shot

    Guptill c Buttler b Finn 22 (NZ 52-2)

    Steven Finn celebrates wicket of Martin Guptill

    Speaking of class acts, Martin Guptill has it is in his locker to get New Zealand close to their required total in this match as a smash through cover for four off Finn's first ball shows. England, then, will be delighted to have him back in the tent as swings wildly and nicks one to Buttler. England jubilant.

  66. NZ 46-1

    Kane Williamson is a class act. In 2014 alone he scored seven ODI 50s and a century. He underlines the threat he poses with a straight drive down the ground for four through mid-on. However, he does get lucky at the end of an over by trying to chop one that gets an inside edge and flies past his stumps and down to the rope.

  67. NZ 37-1 (Guptill 15, Williamson 8)

    Finn veers too short and straight and Guptill is on to it in a flash to pull for four. Williamson then gets in on the act with a flick off his legs for four to the same part of the ground. Runs coming thick and fast. The Kiwis are going at 7.40 an over after five. And one of those has been a maiden.

    Simon Goodall: Stevie Finn is showing some bottle here. To recover from the battering he got in the WC is pretty impressive. Fair play.

  69. NZ 27-1 (Target 409)

    Not content with claiming the wicket of McCullum and bowling the game's first maiden, Steven Finn is after a fielding point. He runs round and dives to stop a boundary at fine leg as Jordan's second over goes for eight.

  70. NZ 19-1 (Guptill 9, Williamson 0)

    Steven Finn is charging in like a man possessed, fuelled by that wicket of McCullum. He finds a tight line and a good length to keep Williamson on his toes and claim a superb maiden - the first of the game.

    Richie O'Hara Beamand: Great to see Finn deal with the pressure of McCullum going after him there. Big, big wicket.

    Pete Naylor: Oh Brendon, you've done a Ponting. At Edgbaston. It's 2005 all over again!

  72. NZ 19-1 (Target 409)

    Edgbaston is still alive with noise as Kane Williamson joins Guptill at the crease for Chris Jordan's first over. Guptill takes a leaf out of McCullum's book by hammering the England opener away for four through cover second ball. He is then almost undone with another swing that catches the inside edge but bounces before it can reach the gloves of Buttler. Guptill takes a breath, composes himself and drives the next ball for another boundary. It's all happening.

  73. WICKET

    McCullum b Finn 10 (NZ 11-1)

    Brendon McCullum

    Now he's out. McCullum takes Finn for successive boundaries in typically aggressive style but the big bowler gets his revenge as the opener swings, misses and is cleaned up by the final ball of the over. A crazy over ends in the best possible way for the home side.

  74. NZ 3-0

    The Kiwi skipper is just home. Just. What a start that would have been for England.

  75. NZ 3-0

    Oh! Is this a run out in just the third ball of Steven Finn's fist over! Rashid throws from fine leg and hits the wickets directly with McCullum struggling to get home at the striker's end. It is going to the third umpire...

  76. Post update

    Here we go again. The England players are out and huddling up. New Zealand's openers - Brendon McCullum and Martin Guptill - follow soon after. The tourists need 409 for victory. Yes, 409! That is just 8.18 an over. Expect fireworks.

    "You might have plundered 408, but there's still work to do. England's bowlers are out loosening up, while the rest of the team are belted catches by Paul Frabrace. Elsewhere on the outfield, there are four games of cricket being played by youngsters, with yet more balls being hit into the stands."

  78. Record breakers

    The records that have fallen today at Edgbaston:

    • Highest ODI total in England
    • Highest ODI total by England (and 10th highest of all time by any side)
    • Highest ODI score by a number six batsman for England (Buttler's 129)
    • Most sixes scored in an ODI innings by England (14)
    • Highest seventh-wicket partnership in ODI history
    • Buttler's 100 is the second-fastest in England ODI history (from 66 balls)
    • Buttler's 129 is his highest ODI score
    • Root's 100 is the fourth-fastest for England (71 balls)

    Former England batsman Jonathan Trott on TMS: "You don't work yourself up too much at three. Whereas when you're opening, you're straight in, and that was the difficult part for me. When Cooky and I had a partnership in Grenada, it felt like old times. The feeling you get of batting for England, putting on a partnership, is something you cherish."

    Jake Walker: Incredible! England score 400+ in a ODI, who'd have predicted this after meekly crashing out to Bangladesh in the World Cup.

    Joe Giacomelli: One day cricket like that will help bring cricket to an entirely new generation in England.

    Richie O'Hara Beamand: That...that was...was that REALLY England?! Superb, brilliant, positive, cricket. Well done lads!

  86. Player reaction

    England batsman Jos Buttler: "It's a great start for us. Credit to Joe Root, who really took it to them early. The way Brendon McCullum captains, he loads it at the front and tries to get you out, so we knew if we could stay in for 50 overs we could get a big score. I feel like I've been batting well this summer. There was a lot of talk before the game about a new era, and to go out and deliver it is really pleasing. We'll have to bowl well."

  88. Eng 408-9

    Edgbaston scoreboard

    The innings started with a wicket from the first ball. It ends with two sixes launched into the stand by Liam Plunkett to take England to 408-9. It is their highest ever ODI score, the first time they have ever reached 400 in the format and as clear a marker as you could possibly see that this is indeed a brave, new England. Wow.

  89. Eng 407-9

    And again! Plunkett goes haywire by heaving a slower ball over mid-wicket for another six. Edgbaston is bouncing!

  90. Eng 400-9

    A hat-trick ball for Elliott but Liam Plunkett isn't in the mood to give the Kiwi's any kind of lift. He launches the ball down the ground for six to give England their first ever 400 total. Amazing!

  92. WICKET

    Rashid c b Elliott 69 (Eng 394-9)

    Adil Rashid plays a shot

    Now Rashid goes with a swipe to deep mid-wicket for Guptill to catch. Terrific knock from the Yorkshire all-rounder.

  93. WICKET

    Jordan c Boult b Elliott 2 (Eng 394-8)

    Jordan looks to hit one straight but sends it skyward for Boult to claim.

  94. Eng 393-7 (Rashid 68, Jordan 2)

    Mitchell Santner, on debut, returns. I'm sure he'll thank his skipper for that. Jordan takes a look and then dances down to swipe through extra-cover for four. That is 392 and England's highest ever ODI score. Take a bow lads. Remember when Jason Roy was out first ball? No, me neither.

    "Quite unbelievable cricket from England. Just think, a couple of months ago, England were being laughed at for playing archaic one-day cricket. It's roles reversed from the World Cup. The public needed this, the England dressing-room needed this, and if this is how they are going to play for the next four years, it's a great start."

    Stuart Mitchell: Went out, came back and missed a ton from Buttler. Who are you England and what have you done with the old England?

    Callum Johnstone: England playing aggressive, exciting cricket and NZ making silly fielding mistakes...I think I need a lie down!

    Rik Andrews: Just looked at the England scorecard for the first time after being in meetings all afternoon. I don't believe it.

  97. Eng 385-7 (Run-rate 8.02)

    Chris Jordan comes in to join Rashid, who pulls aerially between mid-on and mid-wicket for four. England are seven runs short of their highest ever ODI total. A brave, new England indeed.

    "It's been carnage. The New Zealand bowlers were unable to stop Jos Buttler once he got into the swing of things. He hit over the field, he hit through the field - it was a lovely innings."

  99. WICKET

    Buttler c Henry b McClenaghan 129

    Jos Buttler leaves the field

    A standing ovation for Jos Buttler, who top-edges a short ball from McClenaghan to Henry, running in from deep point, to end a stunning innings. 129 from 77 balls. Brutal and brilliant.

  100. Eng 372-6 ( Rashid 55, Buttler 123)

    Boom. Buttler plants another down the ground and straight into the stand off the returning Elliott. Smash. He latches on to a wide, full ball and hammers it between extra-cover and mid-off for four. Kapow. He pulls a second four from the last ball. It is starting to look like an episode of the Adam West Batman. The record is well and truly on.

    Alastair: Root and Buttler did not bat together at all in this innings. How often have 2 centurions in a single ODI innings never been at the crease at the same time?

  103. 50 for Rashid

    Eng 354-6

    Buttler's pyrotechnics means Rashid has been able to go about his work slightly under the radar. But his 50, from 37 balls, has been vital. He brings his half-century up with a pull for four. He follows that with a top-edge that sends the ball over the keeper and brings him another boundary.

  104. Dropped catch

    Eng 345-6 (Buttler 105, Rashid 46)

    Brendon McCullum

    This is very un-New Zealand like. They didn't put a foot wrong in the field in the Test series, but they've dropped three today. The latest is the skipper Brendon McCullum who runs backwards from mid-on and just gets his fingertips to a top-edged pull from Rashid.

  105. 100 for Buttler

    Eng 340-6

    Jos BUttler celebrates

    Buttler goes to 99 with a ramp shot off McClenaghan and moves to a century with a drive through extra-cover. Buttler now has the fastest and second-fastest in ODIs for England. This was from 66 balls. His fastest was from 61. To add to that, this is the highest seventh-wicket stand in all ODIs.

  106. Eng 332-6 (Buttler 95, Rashid 43)

    Henry helps England out with a couple of wides, possibly out of desperation at where to bowl to Buttler, who is now within five runs of another quick-fire century.

  107. Dropped catch

    Eng 329-6

    Jos BUttler hits a shot

    Taylor has had a shocker. Again. Buttler hammers one towards him at long-on but he misjudges it, sets off late and fails to get there to get his hands underneath it. That is a second drop of the afternoon for the Kiwi batsman after he dropped Root earlier. He's going to owe his side some serious runs.

  108. Eng 323-6

    Nathan McCullum is a wily bowler and ties Buttler down with block-hole bowling for three deliveries. But all the bowler needs to do is err slightly and the England batsman is on to it. He smashes a full-toss through the off side for four and then rocks back to cut another boundary to keep the runs flowing.

    "It's been another good partnership. These two have taken their time to get established and now they're making merry. There's not much New Zealand can do: I haven't seen a ball turn or seam. These are perfect batting conditions."

  111. Eng 313-6 (Run-rate 7.48)

    Adil Rashid plays a shot

    Rashid is all scoops, flicks and swivels. He wheels away to hammer a short ball from Henry but is denied a four by a dive from Nathan McCullum. The throw back in has the third umpire busy for a potential run-out. Rashid was short of his ground but Henry had broken the stumps with his hand and so the batsman survives. Buttler then rocks back and blasts the next ball over midwicket and the rope for six. Wound, say hello to salt. At 111, this is now England's highest seventh-wicket stand in ODIs.

  112. Eng 302-6 (Buttler 73, Rashid 37)

    Buttler gets his reverse sweep out to punch a full ball from the returning Nathan McCullum down to the boundary. It is fine shot, but he manages to top it by planting his front foot and launching the ball into the stand over mid-off. Buttler has raced to 73, from just 52 balls. Say it quietly, but if these two stay together until the end, 400 is on.

  114. Eng 288-6

    Back comes Henry, who went for 6.50 an over from the six he bowled earlier. Rashid gets his shovel out to chip a short ball into the leg side with both feet off the ground for a single. Unique but effective. It is one of just five runs from the over as Henry ends the powerplay well for New Zealand.

    "It's just the mindset. They had the same bats at the World Cup, but they didn't have this mindset. Once you've got the commitment to take on the stroke, if you get the ball anywhere near the middle, these grounds aren't big enough."

  117. Eng 283-6 (Rashid 33, Buttler 59)

    This is the Buttler that took Yorkshire to the cleaners in the T20 Blast. It doesn't matter where McClenaghan bowls, it is going. The batsman swivels to pull one through midwicket for another four. It is a shot that says, "Get that filth away from me".

  118. 50 for Buttler

    Eng 276-6

    Jos Buttler hits out for six

    Buttler is in destruction mode. After a failed ramp shot he cuts away McClenaghan for four to bring up 50 in 42 balls.

    "Santner is having a hard time. He's more of a batsman-bowler, and it's a chastening experience to come in at this sort of time and bowl to batsmen with this licence."

  121. Eng 271-6 (Buttler 47, Rashid 33)

    Adil Rashid in action

    It looks effortless for Buttler as he lofts Santner's first ball back over his head for six. The Lancashire keeper shows the way and Rashid follows with a scoop of his own into the stand behind the spinner, who follows up with a pull through midwicket for four. 19 off the over. The momentum is shifting again.
