New Zealand vs England 4th ODI

New Zealand vs England 4th ODI

3rd Match Report: England held on for a thrilling four-run win in the third one-day cricket worldwide on Saturday, despite an unbeaten century by New Zealand captain Kane Williamson. As a result, a significant drop in his six-hitting frequency and he did not even hit one six in his previous 21 ODI innings where he scored 950 runs.

He may not have the style of a Joe Root or a Virat Kohli and he doesn't often play down the ground in the classical fashion but Taylor can make batting look effortless as all the very best players can. That innings came on his 27th birthday.

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.

The other contributor to New Zealand's inning was skipper Kane Williamson who made 46 after openers Martin Guptill and Colin Monro were both out for ducks.

He continued to strike the ball beautifully though and helped bring the rate down to just under eight going into the last 10 overs. It barely slowed him down as he struck 14 fours and seven sixes on his way to his fastest one-day century, taking his average while batting at two to 53.50.

Here are the records that were broken in the match.

Whoever's Taylor eye surgeon is, take a bow.

Former New Zealand captain Jeremy Coney: "Taylor is a tough rooster, he really is". This was Ross Taylor's 19th ton in ODI cricket but never scored more than 131 before this match. Add another victorious chapter to the mix.

Had they not lost 13-5 after bolting to 267-1 in the 38th over, they nearly certainly would have eclipsed New Zealand's record (360-5 against Sri Lanka in 2015). England then exerted itself and shut down the run flow for more than an over, tipping the balance of the match in its favour.

Ali, who narrowly missed a hat trick, and Rashid shared five wickets to set in motion a collapse which saw New Zealand slump to 103-6 before it ended 230-8.

How could this juggernaut be stopped? This was his first ton against New Zealand.

Until that point, that voice had offered annoying armchair-fan cliches, but you could not argue with the sentiment of the final message.

Jonny Bairstow's 106 balls 138 and Joe Root's 102-run knock proved ineffective against Taylor's blitzkrieg on Wednesday evening.

Ross Taylor struck his career best ODI score with an unbeaten 181.

England "stumbled" to 335 for nine. After the opening partnership of 77 between Jason Roy and Johny Bairstow, the wicket of Jason Roy only worsened things for the Kiwis.

Taylor, 33, virtually batted on one leg to take his team through with three balls to spare.

The turnaround was extraordinary, given England had been barrelling towards 400.

When he wasn't middling it, the edges were flying past fielders and racing to the fence.

Poor fielding helped, as did bowlers struggling to find line and length.

Bairstow and Root found the ideal cadence.

But nothing could stop Luteru.
