And so the game draws to a tame conclusion with New Zealand claiming an impressive victory by 40 runs. A solid, if unspectacular performance there by New Zealand and they will no doubt want to build on the foundation laid today. New Zealand was expected to win this game and they duly obliged. It's been a good team performance all things considered.

That's the end of the game and England wrap up a massive victory winning by 6 wickets. New Zealand was never in the game but that is more down to England's excellent performance than it was the former's poor effort. The pitch was a bowler's graveyard and did not offer much assistance in the way of swing, seam or spin. These two teams were fairly evenly matched so it was tough to predict the outcome. That being said England proved to be the stronger in the end and snatched victory.

That's the end of the game and England wrap up a massive victory winning by 6 wickets. New Zealand was never in the game but that is more down to England's excellent performance than it was the former's poor effort. The pitch was a bowler's graveyard and did not offer much assistance in the way of swing, seam or spin. These two teams were fairly evenly matched so it was tough to predict the outcome. That being said England proved to be the stronger in the end and snatched victory.

What a finish! A nail-biter to the very end. Well played to both teams, but in the end, there can be only one winner. England will breathe a sigh of relief after today's match and will be hoping to be more authoritative in the next one. The bowlers were probably licking their lips when they saw the pitch today - the pitch was very sporting, to say the least. Swing, seam and spin benefited greatly throughout the day. Oh dear - if you're a New Zealand supporter, I'm afraid the scorecard makes for pretty poor reading. England simply showed more hunger for the win today and they will deservedly take all the accolades for the performance they put in.
