Earlier, New Zealand skipper Tim Southee won the toss, elected to bat first in the third T20I against England at Saxton Oval, Nelson.

New Zealand vs England 3rd T20I Highlights:


    10:00 (IST)05 Nov 2019
    Tim Southee credits bowlers

    We showed that it was going to get tough if we kept taking wickets. As long as Morgan was there it was always going to be tough for us. Colin has kicked on for us from Sri Lanka. It could have gone either way at the halfway stage.

    09:59 (IST)05 Nov 2019
    Eoin Morgan thought they were in control of run chase

    It was one that got away from us. I thought we were in control all through the chase until we were three or four down. The lack of experience in the chase got it away from us. The guys coming in need to play a few more to get that experience. Everything about what we do is aggressive. A lot of positives to take away for us from today. You had an experienced Tom Curran in the end with the ball, Sam has gone from strength to strength for us.

    Man of the match

    08:51 (IST)05 Nov 2019
    Santner starts well

    Mitchell Santner has been in good form with the ball in the series so far. Santner starts off with six runs in his first over. The left-arm spinner will be the key here as New Zealand look to defend 181. ENG - 66/1 in 8 overs

    08:08 (IST)05 Nov 2019
    Run out to end innings

    Ross Taylor gets trapped in front of the wickets. Skipper Eoin Morgan persists with Saqib Mahmood despite expensive overs. Mahmood gets hit for a six by James Neesham but he gets the wicket of Taylor. The veteran Kiwi batsman did not review it. The ball-tracking shows that it was missing the leg stump. Mitchell Santner comes to bat. Mahmood finishes with 49 runs from four overs and a wicket. NZ - 163/5 in 18 overs

    07:51 (IST)05 Nov 2019
    150 up!

    07:27 (IST)05 Nov 2019
    100 up!

    Ross Taylor is yet to get his first boundary of the match. Colin de Grandhomme is not playing reckless shots and instead trying to stitch a partnership instead of throwing his wicket away. Grandhomme moves to 40s. Eoin Morgan introduces Lewis Gregory in the attack to cover up for Saqib Mahmood's overs. Five runs from Gregory's first over. NZ - 101/3 in 12 overs

    07:17 (IST)05 Nov 2019

    07:05 (IST)05 Nov 2019
    Grandhomme goes big

    Colin de Grandhomme smashes Saqib Mahmood all around the park. Two boundaries and a massive six from Mahmood's over. The fast bowler has leaked 30 runs from two overs already. Eoin Morgan may look to use Lewis Gregory and refrain from giving Mahmood another over in this match. NZ - 67/2 in 7 overs

    07:01 (IST)05 Nov 2019
    End of powerplay

    With two quick wickets, England have made a comeback. Tim Seifert hit his first boundary of the innings off Patrick Brown's second over. Colin de Grandhomme joins him in the middle. The hosts have maintained a pretty handy run rate despite the wickets of both openers. NZ - 52/2 in 6 overs

    06:39 (IST)05 Nov 2019
    Back-to-back boundaries

    Brother Tom Curran opens the bowling from the other end. Martin Guptill hits him for two consecutive boundaries from his over. Freebies from Tom as he bowls on the pads. 10 runs from the second over. Good start for the hosts. NZ - 19/0 in 2 overs
