Chasing England’s target of 180 runs, New Zealand could only manage 159 for six in front of the sharp bowling of Curran (2 for 26) and Woakes (2 for 33). Apart from scoring a half-century, Glenn Phillips (62) added 91 runs for the third wicket with captain Kane Williamson (40) but it was not enough to win the team.
