England won ODI series against New Zealand

Ross Taylor. New Zealand Black Caps v England ODI series University Oval in Dunedin New Zealand. Wednesday 7 March 2018

Earlier, Henry Nicholls and Mitchell Santner made half centuries as New Zealand struggled to 223 in the absence of match-winning batsman Ross Taylor.

Hales reached his half-century in 67 balls before picking out Williamson at mid-wicket in the 24th over to give Santner a wicket.

New Zealand were dealt a blow hours out from the winner-takes-all ODI when Ross Taylor was ruled out with a leg injury.

Bayliss told Sky Sports: "I suppose it is always a possibility but one of the strengths of this team from a bowling point of view is that we've always got six options".

Yet, even though the hosts were able to cobble together a target of 224, Bairstow's 10-over display, in which he smashed eight fours, six sixes and even his own stumps, made the other 72.3 overs of play academic.

Colin Munro went on the second ball he faced, caught behind off Chris Woakes for the third time in five innings.

Bairstow and Alex Hales, a late replacement for the injured Jason Roy, set up the win on Saturday with an imperious 155-run opening stand in Christchurch. "If they don't with the two new balls, it can all be against us, especially when you've got two guys at the top of the order who can be so destructive". But Bairstow's dismissal by part-time medium-pacer Colin Munro, from whom he had just previously hit a six over the gabled grandstand at the University Oval, precipitated a collapse which saw England lose 6-19 in 6.1 overs. Nicholls hit Root's off-spin for six but he top-edged Tom Curran to short leg at an inopportune moment.

It needed three from the last over: the first two balls bowled by Tom Curran yielded no run, but Nicholls hit the third for six into the midst of an excited crowd to end the game.

While the Black Caps end this series wth questions over their batting line-up, England's bowling attack looks secure.

While Willamson and Taylor form the kingpin of New Zealand batting, Latham's addition makes it deadly three-headed combo and augurs well for the Kiwis looking into next year's World Cup.

"It's different from batting in the middle order but my job now is to score big hundreds and contribute match-winning scores", said man-of-the-match Bairstow, who also took a brilliant, diving one-handed catch on the boundary.

JONNY BAIRSTOW scored a blistering one-day worldwide century for the second time in three days. "We didn't get a complete performance all series, but England were outstanding, a very good one-day unit, and deserved to win the series".

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, a Yorkshire team-mate of Bairstow's, set aside his disappointment to deliver credit where it was due.

"We really did create opportunities by building pressure, and our two spinners really did take advantage of a little bit of turn", he said.

"I'm really happy", said Bairstow, whose face said it all.
