Commentary

England won by 40 runs | New Zealand Vs England Live Score, 1st T20I

So that's it for the day from this match, enjoy your day, take care...
Stuart Broad: 'Well, credit to the boys for setting a record total, every one contributed. With the ball the plan was to bang it in short and make it uncomfortable for the batsmen, we did that well. I thought a total of 170-180 was par on this surface but to get such a huge total was absolutely unbelievable. I personally felt good with the warm-ups, I thought building pressure was key to our success today, and you cannot forget that catch by Eoin Morgan to send Brendon McCullum back. Probably a game changing one. Hopefully we can continue this and take it forward to Hamilton as well.'
Brendon McCullum: 'We were completely outplayed today, England were brilliant in all departments. We will have to pull up our socks for better show next time around. The slower bowlers bowled pretty well, but England's timing was perfect. Their bowlers also bowled well, banged it in and changed the pace and that made life very difficult for us even though we started well.'
Well with a mammoth score of over 200, the scoreboard pressure will always be telling on the side that is chasing. That was the case here as well as New Zealand, though for a brief moment looked like they were in the hunt, could never really build solid partnerships. Balls being skied to the fielder and credit to the England bowlers as well for banging the ball in and generating extra bounce. In the end skipper Stuart Broad led from the from the front with a four wicket haul and that pretty much sums up a fantastic day for England. Stay tuned for the presentation.
