Bairstow ton helps England win series against New Zealand

12 March, 2018, 03:27 | Author: Essie Rivera

For England, Chris Woakes took three wickets.

"I suppose it is always a possibility but one of the strengths of this team from a bowling point of view is that we've always got six options", he told Sky Sports Cricket.

Bairstow said: "They set the platform as they have done first up all the way though the series".

Morgan had a short stay for eight while Ben Stokes was 26 not out at the end with Joe Root on 23.

New Zealand, playing without batting rock Ross Taylor who failed a fitness test before the toss, struggled to be six for 93 before Santner and Nicholls put on 84 for the seventh wicket to give the innings some substance.

But if this was a litmus test to see how they might cope with the pressure of knockout matches when they host next year's World Cup, England came through it with flying colours, dominating this contest from start to finish to wrap up a sixth successive ODI series win. England then exerted itself and shut down the run flow for more than an over, tipping the balance of the match in its favor.

Having been put into bat, New Zealand suffered a huge early blow when Munro went for a duck with the third ball of the match.

The Black Caps have held off a making on whether batsman Ross Taylor will play in the series decider against England until just before the match in Christchurch tomorrow.

They timed their partnership well, first being cautious against Moeen and Rashid to make their way to half-centuries, before accelerating.

A previously-out-of-form Nicholls made a restorative 50 before becoming Tom Curran's first wicket.

Nicholls struck an intelligent 55 from 81 balls, while Santner top-scored with a crucial 67 off 71 before he was dismissed early in the second-last over. But Bairstow's dismissal by part-time medium-pacer Colin Munro, from whom he had just previously hit a six over the gabled grandstand at the University Oval, precipitated a collapse which saw England lose 6-19 in 6.1 overs. Besides, team England is now travelling Australia and New Zealand for long and so, they have already familiar with the environment.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, a Yorkshire team-mate of Bairstow's, set aside his disappointment to deliver credit where it was due.

"Jonny Bairstow's batting was of the highest class". He cut, he swept, he drove.

"We went in with a batting-heavy line-up and it'd be fair to say we never got ourselves in a position to utilise that", he said. Had England batted first, or if they had been forced to chase 300, then there would have been a clearer indication of whether they are becoming mentally strong enough to win a global tournament, in comparison to all previous England one-day sides that have buckled.

England skipper Eoin Morgan (8) lasted only seven balls before Ish Sodhi tempted him into a pull shot which a sprinting Colin de Grandhomme caught on the boundary to leave England 192-3 in the 27th over.
