Commentary

New Zealand won by 3 wkts | New Zealand Vs England Live Score, 1st ODI

That's all we have for you from here today. Just hop tabs to catch more cricket in South Africa where the 2nd Test is interestingly poised. Cheers and goodbye for now.
Brendon McCullum and Guptill walk out with wide smiles. Deserving too. Guptill is struggling to walk across even now but rode on adrenalin while batting. His gem of a knock towards the end ensured that the good work done by his skipper to keep New Zealand in the hunt did not go in vain. Kane Williamson's 74 was another crucial knock and his run-out gave England some hope. They did keep chipping away at the wickets but the death blows were struck by the unbeaten duo.
48.5 Stuart Broad to Martin Guptill 1
1 run, Guptill limps across to win the game for New Zealand. A full delivery outside off and Guptill squeezed it wide of third man to clinch a a drama filled thriller for the hosts. They go 1-0 up in the series.
48.4 Stuart Broad to Martin Guptill 0
no run, run out chance missed. Guptill smashed this hard to Bell at cover. Brendon McCullum was way down the track and Bell does not hit the stumps
48.3 Stuart Broad to Martin Guptill 4
FOUR, Guptill continues to elicit wild cheers. A full delivery on the middle and leg now, Guptill makes room to slice it nicely over cover. The ball trickles into the ropes even as Guptill hobbles across
48.2 Stuart Broad to Brendon McCullum 1
1 run, much better length, very full and slanted into leg. McCullum chips it down to long on for one
48.2 Stuart Broad to Brendon McCullum 1wd
wide, short again but too high says the umpire. Broad has a bemused look
48.1 Stuart Broad to Brendon McCullum 6
SIX, that should just about settle the game. Broad is guilty of digging it short again. McCullum sets himself up nicely for the pull and smashes it well over the deep mid wicket fence
Stuart Broad [9.0-0-43-1] is back into the attack
Just 13 needed from the last 2 overs with Brendon McCullum still out there along with a rampaging Guptill. Broad to bowl the crucial over.
47.6 Chris Woakes to Martin Guptill 4
FOUR, terrific batting and courage shown by Guptill here. A very full delivery now, Guptill has to bend low to punch it hard and straight down the ground for another boundary.
47.5 Chris Woakes to Martin Guptill 4
FOUR, slower ball and outside off. Guptill picks it early and cuts it really hard square on the offside for a boundary. He does not realise his injury either and scampers across to the other end before limping back
47.4 Chris Woakes to Martin Guptill 0
no run, full and well outside off again, Guptill looks to go inside out over cover but misses once more
47.3 Chris Woakes to Martin Guptill 0
no run, full and just outside off, Guptill makes room to jam it out on the offside but misses
47.2 Chris Woakes to Brendon McCullum 1
1 run, slightly short and outside off, McCullum chops it down to sweeper cover
