We're a very confident one-day team, and it was a satisfying win - especially at Lord's, an unbelievable ground with great tradition."<br /> <br /> However, he added: "We were in the same position in New Zealand, and we don't want to let our foot off the throat."<br /> <br /> And Elliott was wary of England's ability to bounce back from poor start.<br /> <br /> "All they were missing was one of their batsmen to kick on and get a big one. It's about taking the performance yesterday [Friday] and giving ourselves a pat on the back, and starting again from ball one. You have to respect this opposition. We saw in New Zealand how they can bounce back pretty well."<br /> <br /> New Zealand were one for two at Lord's before Guptill and <a href="/tags/Ross-Taylor/post" target="_blank">Ross Taylor</a> with a stand of 120. Yet barely a fortnight earlier at Lord's, New Zealand collapsed to 68 all out in the first Test.<br /> <br /> New Zealand captain <a href="/tags/Brendon-McCullum/post" target="_blank">Brendon McCullum</a>, trying to explain the difference between the team's Test and one-day batting, said: "Limited overs forces you into a pace you need to play at. Guys assessed the situation and played accordingly (in the Lord's ODI). "Sometimes in Tests we're still learning as a group to address the situation and work out a successful plan."<br /> <br /> Veteran left-arm spinner <a href="/tags/Daniel-Vettori/post" target="_blank">Daniel Vettori</a> took part in training on Saturday after missing his intended return at Lord's because of a recurrence of his longstanding Achilles injury.<br /> <br /> No decision has yet been made on Vettori's availability for the rest of the series, which concludes in Nottingham on Wednesday, and the subsequent Champions Trophy one-day tournament in the UK.
