England vs New Zealand, 3rd ODI, New Zealand tour of England 2013

Commentary

England won by 34 runs | England Vs New Zealand Live Score, 3rd ODI

New Zealand have no time to gloat over this series win. Serious cricket resumes tomorrow with the Champions Cup starting. India will take on South Africa in the 1st match at Cardiff. Do join us for all the action. For now, cheers and bye..
Brendon McCullum: 'I thought we lost at two periods today. To concede 76 in the last 4 overs, we lost too many wickets during the middle overs of our chase. It was outstanding batting by Jos and Morgan. We have shown that we are a good side. We set a few plans and preparations and showed that we could do well. The new ODI rules are a bit of a challenge. Looking forward to do well in the Champions Cup. We have a couple of niggles. Hopefully, with some rest and relaxation, we will have a fit team ahead of our first match against Sri Lanka.'
Alastair Cook: 'A win was very important. I think we played pretty well. We did not get things quite right this series, we played well at times but let slip at important junctures. We played very well today. We are lucky to have 2 different types of spinners. Jos played superbly, Ravi, on comeback was excellent as well, so were the rest of our bowlers.'
Guptill: 'We did not chase well, but we are happy to win the series. This will give us plenty of confidence. We have got used to playing in these conditions. We need to win all matches in the Champions Cup, every match is a must win.'
Guptill: 'We did not chase well, but we are happy to win the series. This will give us plenty of confidence. We have got used to playing in these conditions. We need to win all matches in the Champions Cup, every match is a must win.'
Martin Guptill is the MoS
Buttler: 'I had the license to go after the bowling. The pitch was slower than we thought. It was nice to get a defendable score. Nice to contribute to winning causes. This gives us some momentum going into the mega tournament.'
Jos Buttler is the MoM
New Zealand would be thinking about their last five overs with the ball and the middle-order collapse with the bat. Guptill started off on a positive note, but the visitors suddenly lost track of their chase. England did really well to put pressure on the New Zealand batsmen with some fine bowling. In the end, it was too much for Taylor as he ran out of partners. England will be happy that they have some momentum to take forward going into their Saturday fixture against Australia.
46.3 Steven Finn to Mitchell McClenaghan W
out Caught by Root!! He would be kicking himself for getting too much bat on that. Short outside off stump, McClenaghan cuts uppishly, but it goes straight down the throat of the fielder down at sweeper cover. England manage a consolation win. Mitchell McClenaghan c Root b Finn 4(13)
10 wickets down for NZ. Out batsman is Mitchell McClenaghan. It is all over for NZ.
46.2 Steven Finn to Mitchell McClenaghan 2
2 runs, good length delivery outside off stump, McClenaghan chips it to mid off where Broad dives to his right and gets a hand on that. It would have been a fantastic catch
46.1 Steven Finn to Mitchell McClenaghan 0
no run, short of length delivery outside off stump, Mitchell McClenaghan looks to smash it over cover, but doesn't make contact
Steven Finn [9.0-0-55-1] is back into the attack
End of over 46, 2 runs (. 1 . . 1 . )
NZ: 251/9
