Collapse of England to give New Zealand the T20 series
NELSON: A dramatic collapse in England that saw five wickets fall for just 10 races allowed New Zealand to win a 14-run victory at its Twenty20 international in Nelson on Tuesday.
He also put New Zealand 2-1 ahead in the series with two games to play.
England was on its way to review the 180 in New Zealand when they reached 139 for two in 15, with Captain Eoin Morgan in flight while breaking six consecutive six Mitchell Santner deliveries
Pero con Inglaterra necesitando 42 de las 31 deliveries restantes, Santner cambió el partido cuando atrapó a Morgan Colin Munro out of the final ball of the end.
Dawid malan (55) and James Vince (49) had established a solid base for England at the top of the entrances.
But Morgan's dismissal began a collapse that saw Munro run out of Sam Billings for one in the next before Blair Tickner eliminated Vince.
In the space of two deliveries, Lockie Ferguson played bowling. Lewis Gregory without scoring and Sam Curran caught two, leaving Tom Curran and Saqib Mahmood fighting until the end.
That was one that escaped, said England captain Morgan, noting the lack of experience in his squad.
We were in control of all the persecution until we were three or four down, probably that is a lack of experience. The boys need to get more games at this level.
Ferguson and Tickner finished with two by 25, while the Santner spinner and Ish Sodhi He took a wicket each.
I could have gone in any direction halfway. But we knew that if we could continue taking wickets it would be a touch for them, said the captain of New Zealand. Tim Southee said.
A solid association of medium order by Colin de Grandhomme & Ross Taylor laid the basis for New Zealand after Martin Guptill had given them a flying start with 33 off 17 deliveries
De Grandhomme, the man of the game, hit 55 of 35, while Taylor produced a quieter 27 of 24 in a 66-run position after New Zealand lost three points in the eighth.
It was a better performance by England in the field with a much-improved catching effort which accounted for four of the seven wickets. But the bowling discipline dropped as New Zealand benefited from eight wides & two no balls.
