Whenever England and New Zealand meet in the ODIs, the game is bound to be an enthralling contest. The moving game of the series, the third of the five ODIs between the two sides, took place at the Westpac Stadium at Wellington.

Fans were treated to a nail-biting finish as the course of the match swayed from one side to the other until the last ball was bowled. Finally, it was England who held their nerves and ended up on the winning side.

The home side fell short of the required target by just four runs and as the visitors took a 2-1 lead in the series.ย England, after losing the toss, was put into bat first. It was the case of batsmen getting starts and not able to go on and post substantial scores. The dodgy pitch made it difficult for the batsmen to score at a fair clip.

Captain Eoin Morgan, led the way with his knock of 48. He was well supported by Stokes, Moeen Ali and Buttler lower down the order.

The visitors managed to post a par score of 235 in front of the Kiwis. It was Ish Sodhi who made optimum use of the slow pitch on offer at Wellington. He ended up with three wickets in his quota of 10 overs.

New Zealand chase was one full of ebbs and flows. After the initial flurry from Colin Munro, the match quickly got out of hand for the hosts. The likes of Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali were all over New Zealand as wickets continued to tumble in the middle order.

Captain Kane Williamson was the lone warrior for the Kiwis who scored a splendid century under pressure. He remained unbeaten on 112.
