  1. Thank you and good evening

    That is all from us for today. Thanks for being with us throughout another superb ODI. Be sure to join us again on Wednesday at around 13:30 BST when these two sides will do it all again at Trent Bridge.

    Eoin Morgan and Brendon McCullum
  2. Reasons for optimism

    So, England's brave new era suffers a first proper setback. There were mistakes (not least some of the catching and the failure to bat out the overs) but there was also further reasons to be hopeful about the future. Like Paula Abdul and that cartoon cat, it was always likely to be a case of two steps forward and one step back. But I think we've seen enough in three games to know England are on the right track at least.

    We know the class of Root, Morgan and Stokes already, but now we have some promise in the shape of Billings, Willey et al. Remember, this is a country who bombed out of the World Cup in the most embarrassing of fashions but are now giving the finalists of that competition a ruddy good game.

    oldcats7: It's amazing anyone wants to play for England with such fickle fans. Outplayed on the day by the Kiwis no shame in that!

    Robbie Andrews: If only we'd batted out the allocated overs it could have been different, cracking performance though.

    Kelly: The England team left it a little late to start playing. Good fight though.

  4. Clash of heads at Arundel

    There's some hopefully encouraging news from Surrey, whose T20 Blast game with Sussex at Arundel today was abandoned.

    Surrey fielders Rory Burns and Moises Henriques were both taken to hospital by ambulance, following lengthy treatment on the field, after the pair collided during the 19th over.

    Surrey have tweeted that Henriques has had an X-ray on his jaw and is awaiting results. Burns is waiting to see a specialist and is chatting to staff.

    Ex-New Zealand captain on BBC Test Match Special

    "It's that middle order for New Zealand, with Williamson and Taylor - they don't take as many risks as the rest of the batting order do. While Morgan got to 70 and Root got to 50, they weren't able to carry on. I think New Zealand bowled better than they had in the previous matches, and they were rewarded with those late wickets, when England didn't help themselves."

    Simon Mann

    BBC Test Match Special

    "New Zealand quietly outplayed England for large parts of the afternoon, and were very impressive with the bat."

  7. Post update

    It was a thoroughly professional and impressive chase from New Zealand. England hung in, took wickets and took the game to the last over but the damage was already done by Taylor and Williamson who were superb in scoring a century each. The tourists take a 2-1 series lead and leave England to reflect on a decent showing but one that will have taught them an important lesson in batting out every one of your 50 overs.

  8. NZ win by three wickets

    Southee clubs over extra cover off the back foot to send the ball to the boundary and win the game with an over to spare.

  9. NZ 302-7

    Wheeler adds another to level the scores with a push into the off side.

  10. NZ 301-7

    Tim Southee heads out to the crease and cuts his second ball to third man to leave his side needing two to win.

    Alice Stainer: The only thing I'm disappointed with in England's performance is the catching (or lack thereof). Otherwise, good effort.

    Dai Williams: England have progressed from Excellent, to Very Good to acceptable in three ODIs. Need to address this!

  12. WICKET

    Ronchi c Roy b Stokes 13 (NZ 300-7)

    Ronchi looks to end it first ball of the over but skies his drive for Roy to catch at point. It won't change the result but it delays the inevitable.

  13. NZ 300-6

    New Zealand claim another three runs from Root's remaining four balls. Just three to win now. Stokes to bowl...

  14. NZ 297-6

    With four bowlers having bowled out, England have to turn to Joe Root. It is a gamble to allow Stokes a go from the other end. The gamble doesn't pay off as Ronchi smashes one over deep square-leg for six. Emphatic. Six more to win.

  15. NZ 291-6 (12 to win from 19 balls)

    The Ageas Bowl roar Wood to the crease during his final over. It is one last attempt to inspire something very special from the home team. The Durham man produces a tight last six balls but fails to make another breakthrough to crank up the pressure a tad more. Tension isn't the right word, but England are battling hard in the hope of creating some in the final few overs.

  16. NZ 290-6 (13 to win off 24 balls)

    Debutant Ben Wheeler is in to try and guide his side to victory. The crowd are fired up and think he may have planted his first ball into the hands of short cover, but it was a bump ball. Thus ends an encouraging 10 ODI overs from David Willey, who ends with 10-1-69-3.

    "Taylor was waiting for a minute until he got the thumbs up from the square-leg umpire, he wanted to make sure the ball didn't come off the keeper's gloves. He gauged the pace and the tempo of the innings perfectly."

  20. WICKET

    Taylor b Willey 110 (NZ 290-6)

    England continue to chip away as Willey claims the scalp of Taylor in his last over as the batsman swings and edges on to his own stumps. It ends a brilliant innings from Taylor, who stuck around to see the replay, just in case Buttler had removed the bails with his gloves, but then has to depart to big and wholly earned applause.

  21. NZ 288-5 (15 to win off 30 balls)

    Luke Ronchi is the new man. He can end this contest in an over if he gets his eye in. He starts by flicking off his hip to collect two runs before claiming another couple with a drive through cover.

  22. Post update

    Phil Tufnell

    Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "I think it's come too late, but a wicket's a wicket - it was a wild slash outside off stump from Santner, and went to Joe Root at a comfortable height, but he's not happy - he throws the ball into the turf. Perhaps he thinks it's too late, or just that they've finally taken a catch."

  23. WICKET

    Santner c Root b Stokes 21 (NZ 284-5)

    Another England wicket removes Santner, who edges Stokes to Root at slip. The catcher throws the ball to the turf in anger, probably in acknowledgement that this is too little, too late for the home side.

    Ben Stokes (left) and Eoin Morgan (right) celebrate the wicket of Mitchell Santner
  24. NZ 280-4 (23 to win off 36 balls)

    I've been very impressed by Willey. He has bowled with pace and precision. But after beating Santner outside off with the first ball of his ninth over, the Kiwi batsmen gets the better of him by scything him to third man for two and then hacking a length ball through mid-on and punching a drive through cover for successive fours. To make matters worse, Willey then slings one down leg for four wides. The over ends with a big appeal for a potential catch down the leg side, but it is off the thigh pad, not the bat.

    Gordon Thursfield: Pity Rashid didn't increase pace sooner. Can't wait to see him bowl on day five of a Test. Sure does give the ball a rip.

  26. Email tms@bbc.co.uk

    Kesh Chauhan: You can't bring a new inexperienced side and expect them to play like veterans. This will be a good lesson for this new England team and it will give our new coach (he hasn't even started yet) an opportunity to scrutinise this team and pull them up. I'm still excited about this new team and setup. Let's not let two ODI defeats against a top 50-over team dampen our spirits. Still lots to come from this England team.

  27. NZ 264-4 (39 to win from 42 balls)

    Morgan is inches from giving England another breakthrough in Finn's last over as his throw to the non-striker's end just misses the stumps as Santner scampers for a single. Finn ends with 0-55 from his 10. Good effort from the big seamer, but no wickets to show for it.

  28. Text 81111

    Kevin, London: Have to give a lot of credit to NZ they have an inexperienced bowling line-up, 14 caps between Henry, Santner and Wheeler before play and still managed to bowl England out on a good batting track.

    Ben Wear: England's catching has gone downhill since Strauss retired!

    MixItNFixItMan: Inexperienced Eng team but a great mentality, Wood's dangerous with every ball. You can practise fielding, you can't practise desire.

  30. NZ 260-4

    The situation is a simple one. Only wickets will win this for England. Morgan turns to Stokes as he goes on the all-out attack. Taylor and Santner cope well, taking him for seven, with the latter pulling one ball to leg for three.

    It is now when you start to really wonder how much difference that extra four-and-a-bit overs would have made to this game at the end of England's innings? A lot, I suspect.

    A frustrated Ben Stokes (right)
  31. NZ 253-4 (50 to win off 54 balls)

    New Zealand were in cruise control but now, all of a sudden, they have some work to do and Taylor has some pressure on him. Finn charges in with renewed vigour, cheered on by a re-energised Ageas Bowl. New man Santner flashes at one that nips away from him and beats the bat. It was the shot of a nervous man. England have a sniff now. Just a tiny one.

  32. Post update

    Ed Smith

    Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

    "A beautiful leg break - slower, wider, Elliott was lured into a big off-drive which in retrospect looks rash. England have a fourth wicket, is there going to be a twist? England aren't going to contain New Zealand, they need wickets."

    bROCKerz: If this was the first match of the series against World Cup runners-up, then it would be a seen as a good performance. Eng need patience.

    David Swanson: No doubt about it, this new England ODI philosophy looks promising but cant ignore the old saying: catches win matches.

  34. WICKET

    Elliott c Root b Rashid 5 (NZ 249-4)

    Rashid is given a go at the new man with his last over and the move pays off as Elliott swings widely at the last ball - which is lofted temptingly outside off - which he nicks to Joe Root at slip. Is there going to be a twist? Even if there isn't, it is good to see England fighting to the end.

  35. NZ 244-3 (Runs required 59)

    Muted celebrations from England for that wicket. It is too little, too late. In comes Grant Elliott, who picks up two runs from his first ball with a glance off his pads.

  36. Post update

    Isa Guha

    Ex-England seamer on BBC Test Match Special

    "New Zealand have such a good ability to move up through the gears. They don't bludgeon the balls to all parts, but they're not fazed by any bowler they face. I felt Adil Rashid's spell was going to be crucial, but Williamson hit him out of the attack."

  37. WICKET

    Williamson c Wood b Willey 118 (NZ 242-3)

    Finally, England take a catch as Wood makes amends for his earlier drop by taking an even tougher chance above his head at mid-off off the bowling of Willey. Williamson - who lofted one straight for six the ball before - goes for a truly world-class 118. It has been a pleasure to witness a developing master of this game take apart an attack.

    Mark Wood
  38. Dropped catch

    NZ 234-2

    Technically a dropped catch but it would have been a hell of a snare as Williamson batters one straight back at Willey over head height. The bowler gets a hand on it through pure instinct but not enough to take it.

    "Consecutive hundreds for Ross Taylor, he gets a hug from Kane Williamson and acknowledges the warm applause from the crowd. He's a hugely talented player and a widely admired cricketer."

  40. 100 for Taylor

    NZ 234-2

    Some good variation from Finn - including a slower ball that out-foxes Williamson and beats him outside off - challenges the Kiwi pair but not enough to prevent Ross Taylor joining Williamson in three figures. Successive, superb 100s for the batsman. He now has 14 in ODIs.

  41. Email tms@bbc.co.uk

    Chris, Cambridge: What is it with our catching (Jordan apart) in the last year? We used to be world class in the field. Who is the fielding coach - can we get Collingwood in?

  42. Post update

    Isa Guha

    Ex-England seamer on BBC Test Match Special

    "I remember we had a game on television in Melbourne and we dropped three successive catches off three balls. It was very rare we had games on television on those days so we were trying to make a good impression, but the MCG feels like a cauldron when you drop catches."

  43. How's stat?!

    This is now New Zealand's highest third-wicket ODI stand against any opposition, beating that Parore/Rutherford 180 stand from 1994 we mentioned earlier.

    If this pair take NZ to their exact target of 303, they will equal the second highest NZ ODI stand for any wicket (267* by Grant Elliott and Luke Ronchi against Sri Lanka in Dunedin this January). But the game will be won before they can match James Marshall and Brendon McCullum's record of 274 against Ireland in Aberdeen in 2008.

    Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor
  44. Dropped catch

    NZ 226-2

    A third drop and it is the easiest of the lot as Williamson lobs a drive straight to mid-off, where Mark Wood should gobble it up but spills it on to his knee and then the turf. This after Taylor had fetched Willey for successive fours to make this is the highest third-wicket partnership by any New Zealand duo in ODIs. This is turning into a very bad day at the office for England.

  45. Email tms@bbc.co.uk

    Tim in Warrington: Out come the armchair captain brigade yet again. A matter of days ago we were talking about this being a developing team with a new style that needs time to settle. But the second any sign of inexperience comes the knives are out. We will not score 400 and bowl the opposition out every game, we will have the odd off day as all teams do.

  46. NZ 217-2 (Taylor 84, Williamson 109)

    Taylor makes the most of the fielders removed from the deep to chip Finn over the top, straight down the ground for four. Williamson faintly edges one on to his own pads to deny Finn an lbw shout before loftin two runs of his own over the field to leg. Take the ones and twos, hit the boundaries when they are offered. New Zealand have earned the right to make this a simple game.

    "Willey and Wood, the newcomers, have both bowled pretty well, but they've got to conjure a couple of wickets from somewhere. Maybe the combination of the powerplay, and Blowers on the microphone, can conjure it?!"

  49. NZ 209-2

    David Willey produced a peach of a ball to trap Guptill lbw earlier in the innings. How he and his side could do with a couple more deliveries like that. The left-armer draws an appeal from a delivery that goes down leg and generates a noise, but it was more likely pad than bat. Power play time.

  50. How's stat?!

    Malcolm Ashton

    BBC Test Match Special statistician

    "This is the highest ODI partnership by New Zealand against England, beating the 165 opening stand by Jesse Ryder and Brendon McCullum in Hamilton in 2008, and the previous best third-wicket stand which was 160 by Geoff Howarth and Martin Crowe in Auckland in 1984."

    The Kiwis' highest third-wicket ODI stand against anyone is 180 by Adam Parore and Ken Rutherford against India in Vadodara in 1994.

  51. NZ 208-2 (Runs required 95)

    Morgan calls on Steven Finn in the search for something, anything to give his side even a glimmer of hope. It is a decent over, going for four, and draws applause from Paul Farbrace, but decent is not enough in these circumstances. England need something special. Time for drinks.

    Stanley Stearman: Has Rashid been doing anything different in this and the last ODI compared with when he got 4 for?

    Jonny Hancock: The worst part for England today is Starc and Hazlewood running through the West Indies right now.

    West Indies are 38-5 in their second innings in Jamaica on day four of the second Test, needing a mammoth 392 to win. Mitchell Starc has 3-11, Josh Hazlewood has 2-9.

  54. NZ 204-2 (Taylor 76, Williamson 104)

    Williamson picks off another wayward England ball, flicking Wood off his pads straight out of the middle of the bat and down to backward point. This is now a record third-wicket partnership at this ground, worth 168. The Kiwis still need the best part of 100, but you sense the fight has been knocked out of England by this pair.

    "A remarkable innings from Williamson, the way he played the leg-spinner Rashid was an object lesson. An innings which deserves to be on the winning side."

    NZ 200-2

    Take a bow Kane Williamson. He deserves every bit of applause he receives here as he reaches his seventh - and perhaps best - one-day century. He his picked apart this England attack with world-class precision.

    Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor
  57. NZ 198-2 (Williamson 98, Taylor 76)

    Williamson moves closer to a century with calm authority, courtesy of three of singles from another unthreatening Rashid over. His innings has not been aggressive but it has been calm, composed and largely untroubled.

    steve C lawley: If this match is lost it is when England failed to use all their overs.

    Jon Evans: If England improve the fielding and reviewing we will be a top team. Drop too many chances and waste all reviews.

  59. Dropped catch

    NZ 193-2

    Another goes down as Taylor pulls fiercely off Wood straight to Ben Stokes at shortish midwicket but he is unable to hold on. It was straight out of the middle of the bat. A tougher chance than Buttler's, but a chance nonetheless.

    Paul Farbrace watches on from the England dressing room, chewing away with an intense glare on his face. His team have satisfied his desire to play with a more attacking style but despite their best efforts they have come up against one of the global masters in the art of 50-over cricket.

    Kane Williamson
  60. NZ 187-2 (Required run rate 5.85)

    Rashid continues and tries a few of his tricks, including a googly, but doesn't get the wicket England so dearly need. Williamson almost gives a chance with a lofted drive into the deep of the off side, but it drops short of two sprinting fielders. 20 overs to go, 117 runs needed, with eight wickets in hand. Should be straightforward for the tourists.

    "Morgan knows he's under pressure, he's got to conjure a wicket as he knows if they don't pick up a couple of wickets, the game is slipping away from them. That was a difficult chance for Buttler, but you've got to catch those. He went for it one-handed and out it slipped."

  63. NZ 179-2

    It is a good over from Wood. It deserved better. Had Buttler done his job properly it would have received better. As it is, New Zealand remain just two down and in firm control.

  64. Text 81111

    Jenny in Leeds: When does a brave new world become a misguided folly?

  65. Dropped catch

    There is the chance. And it goes down. Wood nicks the outside edge of Taylor's bat and sends the ball at a catchable height for Buttler, but he goes with just the one hand and fails to grasp it. Heads in hands all round the ground.

  66. NZ 177-2 (Run rate 6.32)

    England need to hang in here and keep plugging away. One brings two and all that. Rashid tries his luck with a seventh over but Williamson has the measure of his Yorkshire colleague and dances down to punch narrow of mid-on for four. The shot of a world-class man on the top of his game.

    Mark Wood
  67. NZ 171-2 (Williamson 82, Taylor 65)

    The crowd are getting firmly behind Wood, who is giving it his all for his country in pursuit of a breakthrough. Williamson and Taylor are unruffled, though. They are well set at the crease and claim a single and double before Taylor flicks off his pads for four, to muttered concern from the crowd within the Bowl.

  68. Match abandoned at Arundel

    Surrey's T20 Blast game with Sussex at Arundel has been abandoned.

    Surrey fielders Rory Burns and Moises Henriques have both been taken to hospital by ambulance, following lengthy treatment on the field, after the pair collided during the 19th over.

    It has been announced at the ground that both players are conscious and sitting up, while it has also been reported that both players waved as they were lifted into their ambulances.

  69. NZ 164-2

    England think they have Taylor as he swings high on the pull to a short Wood ball. The fielders and bowler think he has nicked it. Umpire Tim Robinson doesn't, though, and England don't have a review to challenge it.

  70. NZ 164-2

    Thanks Mitch. I wish I was joining you in better circumstances for England. Taylor and Williamson have been a thorn in the Three Lions' paw for much of this series and they are taking this game away from them. They shared a 121-run partnership at the Oval on Friday and they have bettered that here, reaching 128 as Williamson rocks back to punch an aerial cut just past the diving Wood for four as part of a six-run over.

  71. NZ 158-2 (target 303)

    Williamson moves to 77 from 68 balls with a single, Taylor has 58 from 67.

    And with New Zealand reaching the halfway stage of their innings (if it goes the distance), I can hand you to Phil Dawkes to see you through the rest of the game.

  72. NZ 157-2

    It's umpire's call for clipping leg stump - so the decision stays with on-field umpire Tim Robinson, who gets a "Robbo, well done, mate" from third umpire Steve Davis, and Williamson can resume his innings.

  73. Umpire review

    As the TMS commentators had suggested, England turn back to the extra pace of Mark Wood as they look for that all-important breakthrough. Steven Finn has to be alert to back up a throw and prevent a likely four overthrows.

    Suddenly, England have a sniff - Williamson is hit on the pad by a full toss, the umpire shakes his head but England want a review...

  74. NZ 154-2 (target 303)

    After two overs for 12 from Root, England turn back to Adil Rashid as their front-line spinner, and there's a slip in which may cut out Williamson's "dab past the keeper" shot. The first ball of his new spell is a wide, but the Yorkshire leg-spinner does manage to rip one past Taylor's outside edge which will encourage him. Williamson finds the gap wide of mid-on but David Willey cuts it off and they run two - five from the over. But with a required rate of 5.73, that will do nicely.

    Kane Williamson
  75. NZ 149-2 (Williamson 72*, Taylor 55*)

    Taylor has shown occasional glimpses of the powerful hitter we know he can be, tucking into a shorter delivery from Stokes which disappears to the mid-wicket boundary.

    The Kiwis are nearly halfway to their target, with less than half their available overs gone. If you weren't with us earlier, England were bowled out for 302 with 4.4 overs unused.

    "Morgan has gone to Root and Stokes, almost like saying that he is just hoping to nick one out before the enforcers come back. At the moment, it is question of whether you go to your main fella and Wood has seemed to hit the pitch harder than anyone else."

  78. Taylor 50

    NZ 143-2

    A tighter over from Root, four singles from it, the last of which allows Ross Taylor to raise his bat for his 32nd ODI fifty from 56 balls.

  80. Clash of heads at Arundel

    Play is still suspended at Arundel, as we mentioned - Surrey's Moises Henriques and Rory Burns are still being treated, with three ambulances on the field.

  81. NZ 139-2

    Fun and games at the Ageas Bowl as a young fan, hooked up to ropes, attempts to ascend a climbing wall, but England will have a mountain to climb unless they can split this pair. But Taylor is struck a painful blow from Stokes as he tries a full-blooded pull shot and only succeeds in clubbing the ball straight into the unmentionables. He rolls over with pain, tries to get up... and then falls to the ground again. He's going to need a visit from the physio as Stokes did earlier...

  82. NZ 136-2 (Williamson 68*, Taylor 46*)

    England stick with spin at the Northern End, but replace the leg-spin of Rashid with the off-spin of Joe Root - Taylor guides him off his legs, but Mark Wood gets on his imaginary horse and gives chase, sprinting to stop the ball in front of the rope and turn four into three. But New Zealand continue to profit with five easy singles off the rest of the over.

    The century stand has been reached from 81 balls. Fair to say, England need to take wickets or they will lose this game with overs to spare.

  83. Clash of heads at Arundel

    BBC Sussex Sport on Twitter: Three ambulances at the scene at Arundel. Play still suspended.

  84. NZ 128-2 (target 303)

    Ben Stokes is England's fifth bowler, fresh from his batting heroics, he finds a bit of bounce against Taylor who plays and misses with a flashing cut shot. But three singles - and a couple of wild wides - mean New Zealand continue to tick along at a good rate. They are scoring at 6.73 and the required rate is 5.64.

  85. Williamson 50

    NZ 123-2

    Williamson shows some aggression against Rashid, whacking a loose delivery for four back past the bowler - and that's his fifty, from 46 balls. Using his feet well to the spinner, he lofts another four through long-on before whipping another boundary to the same region. Williamson show his range of shots with a careful dab past the keeper for his fourth four of the over - and it may be time for Rashid, with 0-37 from four overs, to take a rest while Williamson is in this form.

  86. Clash of heads at Arundel

    It appears as though there has been an unfortunate incident in the T20 Blast match at Arundel between Sussex and Surrey. Two visiting fielders have collided going for the same ball, which has led to play being suspended and huge number of medics administering treatment. The Surrey Twitter feed suggests the two players involved could be Moises Henriques and Rory Burns. More on that as we get it.

  87. Drinks break

    NZ 105-2 (Williamson 46*, Taylor 39*)

    It's not quite been Steven Finn's day today, a duck with the bat (not that it should matter as much to a number 11) but it's been easy pickings against him for New Zealand today - he has 0-28 from five overs.

    The umpires wave the drinks on - my impression is that New Zealand's noses are ever so slightly in front at this moment, as evidenced by the fact that England were 98-2 at this stage.

    "Rashid hasn't bowled so many full tosses as he did at the Oval. He is bowling at a bit of a quicker speed than he did on Friday as well, where he tossed it up just a bit too much."

  89. NZ 100-2 (target 303)

    Williamson forces Rashid for two backward of point, prompting Morgan to post another fielder to that region. Rashid, spinning the ball from hand to hand between deliveries as leg-spinners seem prone to doing, is unable to prevent the third-wicket pair picking off singles, while Taylor expertly threads a four through the covers to bring New Zealand into three figures.

    Kane Williamson
  90. NZ 91-2 (Williamson 38*, Taylor 33*)

    England's 12th man James Taylor - who went from captaining the ODI side in Ireland to carrying the drinks in this series - signs some autographs on the boundary as Taylor dismissively cuts the recalled Finn for successive fours. This stand is now worth 55. With eight runs off the first two balls, there's no pressure on Taylor as he sees off the rest of the over with ease.

    Chris Williamson: This is the next part of the game, if Williamson and Taylor out score Root and Morgan NZ will win. England must get them out.

    Mark Wood
  92. NZ 83-2 (target 303)

    The bearded Rashid - who made his ODI debut back in 2009 but had to wait six years between his fifth and sixth appearances - walks in and then bounces into his delivery stride, and at first the Kiwi pair play him with respect but Williamson picks his moment to skip down the wicket and smack him for four through extra cover. At this stage, England were 82-2 so it's even stevens.

  93. NZ 77-2 (Williamson 33*, Taylor 24*)

    England continue to pair pace with spin as Wood continues for his fourth over, more careful accumulation from Williamson and Taylor before a flashing Taylor drive sees the ball fly off the edge and through the unguarded third man boundary for four.

    Ross Taylor
  94. NZ 70-2 (target 303)

    And it's leg-spinner Adil Rashid into the attack at the Northern End, He's fairly tidy first up, not much raging turn but it's a tidy four singles from the over.

    Captain Eoin Morgan swings his arms - surely he's not going to bowl himself after ? More likely, he's telling someone else (Adil Rashid?) to warm up. Taylor works Wood for a two off his legs.

    New Zealand 64-2 (10 overs - target 303)

    Batsmen: Williamson 30*, Taylor 15*

    Bowling figures: Finn 3-0-15-0, Willey 5-1-31-1, Wood 2-0-13-1.

    Fall of wickets: 4-1 (Guptill 2), 36-2 (McCullum 11)

    England 302 all out: Morgan 71, Stokes 68, Root 54

  98. NZ 64-2 (target 303)

    Williamson is starting to find his range here, drilling Willey back down the ground for four - applauded on the Kiwi balcony by former Hampshire skipper (and briefly England international) Dimitri Mascarenhas, who is now New Zealand's bowling coach. Let's hope he remembered not to walk into the home dressing room today out of habit. Williamson profits from another four when Steven Finn pulls out a full-length dive at square leg to keep the ball from the rope - but the lanky Finn's knee was touching the rope as he pushed the ball away. And the compulsory powerplay overs conclude with New Zealand having recovered well from losing their openers - just as England did. Williamson has 30 from 31 balls, Taylor has 15 from 41.

    Never mind the two slips last over, Wood has a cordon of no fewer than three as he starts his second over to Taylor, but the Kiwi number four soon has the fielders running for cover as he guides back-to-back boundaries either side of the wicket, the second of which brings up the Black Caps' fifty. An expensive over - 12 from it. And at the risk of sounding a doom-monger, England were 40-2 at this stage.

    New batsman Ross Taylor looks up at the skies as he walks out, as though he expects the Hampshire weather to turn against him. Plenty of cloud but unless any of you know of any apocalyptic storms heading in from the Solent, Messrs Duckworth and Lewis may not be needed today. Taylor is up and running with a single, while Wood earns some warm applause as he stalks down to third man to field in front of the Colin Ingleby-Mackenzie Stand. Now there's a man who would approve of England's new, enterprising, entertaining brand of cricket.

    "It is going to be hitting leg stump. He was taken out by the speed off that ball. It came back to him a little bit and hit him on the knee-roll so it wasn't going over the top. Both openers gone and suddenly that meagre total of 300 is looking a bit bigger."

  107. WICKET

    B McCullum lbw b Wood 11 (NZ 36-2)

    An early bowling change as England turn to the pace of Mark Wood, he gets one to move back in to McCullum, it hits the Kiwi captain on the knee-roll and umpire Tim Robinson's finger is up in an instant.

    New Zealand think about a review, and decide against it - it was "umpire's call" over whether it would have been brushing leg stump. And Wood is delighted.

    Brendon McCullum
  108. NZ 35-1 (B McCullum 11*, Williamson 17*)

    Willey, left-arm over with a slip in place, concedes his first boundary as Williamson cuts him for four, while McCullum thumps a four between the non-striker and the stumps. A couple of twos mean that while Willey's first two overs cost three runs combined, this one cost 13.

  109. NZ 22-1 (target 303)

    McCullum is finally off the mark from his fifth delivery as he pushes Finn for a single, while Williamson confidently on-drives for four. And when Finn strays with his length, it's more like the old McCullum as he easily picks up a four over the square leg umpire's head.

    Brendon McCullum
  110. Close!

    NZ 12-1 (Willey 2-1-3-1)

    Will the real Brendon McCullum please stand up? The Kiwi captain is beaten through the gate by a brute of an inswinger which whistles over the stumps and is taken by Jos Buttler leaping to his left. Willey (wearing ODI shirt number 36 for those of you who note such things) is not express pace, mainly in the low 80s, but when McCullum tries to force another inswinger off his legs, three leg byes are the result. Williamson nearly pops a catch to backward point where the ball falls just short of Jason Roy. But the result is a maiden over for young Willey.

    A gentle start by New Zealand standards, this - England are running round the field with plenty of energy, and Finn keeps Williamson honest with a good line and length. Just a two from the over.

    Finn gets the scoreboard ticking with a leg-side wide. Guptill guides a single, then takes his life in his hands when he miscues one over mid-wicket... but it's just out of reach of Alex Hales as he chases after it.

    An interesting first half of the day - England won the toss and batted (with Brendon McCullum implying he would have fielded first) and they were going nicely at 34-0 when openers Jason Roy and Alex Hales fell in the space of three deliveries.

    Captain Eoin Morgan (71) then led by example, adding 105 with Joe Root (54) and 55 with Ben Stokes, who hit 68 from 47 balls and was well supported by Sam Billings who made 34 from 16 balls.

    However, Billings's departure was the start of a collapse as England lost their last five wickets for 14 runs in the space of 22 balls - leaving them 302 all out.

    Seven of the Black Caps XI that day are playing today, while only Root, Morgan and Buttler remain from that England XI. The game marked the end of Jade Dernbach's ODI career after he took 0-87 from 10 overs.

    Just like that, it's over as Finn loses his off stump to Tim Southee. England leave 4.4 overs unused, but on the other hand, they didn't look like scoring 300 very often in the World Cup?

    Meanwhile, bowling England out in the allotted three-and-a-half hours may have saved New Zealand from a possible over-rate fine if the innings had gone the distance.

    After four wickets for 12 runs in 18 balls, England must now rely on Steven Finn to bat out six overs. Hopefully for them, he can clearly recall his performance as nightwatchman in Dunedin a couple of years ago when some stoic resistance brought him a Test fifty.

    But it's all over for Stokes as he goes for another legside heave and loses his leg stump as Wheeler, who finished with debut figures of 10-0-63-3, is rewarded for his accuracy.

    Having been sitting pretty post-powerplay, England have lost three wickets for 10 runs in 15 balls, and may now be battling to use their full allocation of overs.

    Ben Wheeler
  140. Eng 298-7

    As debutant Wheeler begins his last over, Willey, son of former England batsman (and Test umpire) Peter Willey, doubles his score with a single - his job will be to give Stokes as much of the strike as possible for the last seven overs. Stokes moves to 68 with a single, and fellow left-hander Willey is not daunted by a short ball as he clubs it through mid-wicket past the diving Elliott for four.

That's five fours from the last five balls Billings has faced, have England unearthed another star here? While New Zealand get their breath back with a rare dot ball, Billings smacks another four over the bowler's head - six fours from seven balls for the Kent man, he has 34 from 14 balls and he's even overshadowing Stokes.

    Every run is crucial here, Billings scoops McClenaghan over extra cover and they scamper three. The Kent man then finds the boundary for the first time by stepping across and ramp-scooping a four through fine leg for four, before pulling another wide of mid-wicket. Another ramp brings him four more - the youngster has 22 from 10 balls, and England's powerplay total was 58-1 - not bad compared to the panic stations which used to permeate their batting powerplays.

    McCullum rotates his seamers, with the two left-armers going from the Pavilion End and Matt Henry replacing fellow right-armer Southee at the Northern End (where the hotel is - and, for those with local knowledge, the village of Hedge End). The tall Henry is charged with an aerial wide when he bangs in a bouncer, Stokes and Billings busily add some well-run singles, while Billings goes unorthodox, chipping the ball from outside off stump towards cow corner for three. 250 up for England - and in these modern times, they must be thinking of at least 350.
