New Zealand vs England 4th T20I Highlights:

13:59 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Eoin Morgan happy with performance

Thought it was a clinical performance. That we had to win tonight to keep the series alive. Seeing young guys come through today, particularly with the ball, was very impressive. Malan scoring a hundred coming in today is absolutely brilliant. To see a guy come into the team and make use of the chance is exactly what you want to see. Bench strength and depth in our squad seems extremely strong. Dawid and I played for a long time together at Middlesex, and know each other's game pretty well. Everything was calm there, we managed to laugh it out. It was a beautiful wicket. I think we have to get better and better, and the Blackcaps have also done the same, but Sunday lines up to be an epic game.

13:52 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Southee looks at positives

The guys will move on from it, and we have a chance in two days to win the series. I think it's more about learning from the experience being put under pressure. Wickets were the only way to slow them down. We got a nice start, but they started getting wickets, and that tends to stem the run-flow as well. I hope there's no boundary count, but we'll get to Auckland and think about that.

13:52 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Man of the match

It's a no-brainer. Dawid Malan named 'Man of the match' for his maiden T20I fifty, an unbeaten 103 from 51 deliveries. 

"I'd say international hundreds don't come around often, so it's special. To do it at such a crucial time is pleasing. Morgan started whacking it, and I just tagged along. The boundaries were so small so I thought I'd give it a go. The intent that Morgan showed was amazing, and I think it's great to have a leader like that. We're happy that this performance came at such a crucial time," he said.

13:44 (IST)08 Nov 2019

Chris Jordan wraps it up with a full straight delivery. Trent Boult departs. England win the second T20I by a huge margin of 76 runs, level five-match series by 2-2. 

13:36 (IST)08 Nov 2019

Direct hit from Chris Jordan and Ish Sodhi is a goner. Another wicket falls. New Zealand fear getting bundled out. NZ - 154/9 in 15.1 overs

13:34 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Sodhi hits it out of park

Magnificent! Ish Sodhi hits Tom Curran's delivery out of the stadium. Sodhi proves himself to be a big hitter down the order. Trent Boult joins him in the middle. The leg-spinner even plays a one-handed shot through the offside. 10 runs from the over. NZ - 154/8 in 15 overs

13:30 (IST)08 Nov 2019

Sam Curran gets his first wicket. Mitchell Santner edges the ball trying to play a pull shot off the bouncer. New Zealand heading towards a definite loss. NZ - 144/8 in 14 overs

13:24 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Parkinson gets rid of Southee

Matthew Parkinson had the last laugh as he gets the wicket of Tim Southee. New Zealand skipper opts for DRS but it does not work in his favour. Southee departs for 39 from 15 deliveries. Ish Sodhi comes in to bat. NZ - 138/7 in 12.5 overs

13:20 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Brown bowls a 9-ball over

Patrick Brown bowls an expensive over. 17 runs from the over. The run chase is still alive. Tim Southee is leading the run chase. We haven't seen any fireworks from Mitchell Santner yet. NZ - 126/6 in 12 overs

13:13 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Expensive from Parkinson

Sloppy fielding from England fielders as Tom Banton drops Tim Southee's catch followed by a misfield at deep square leg. Southee hits two sixes and a four from the over, 18 runs from it. NZ - 109/6 in 11 overs

13:08 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Taylor departs

Patrick Brown comes into the attack and takes Ross Taylor's wicket. Taylor goes for a big shot but gets caught just inside the boundary by Tom Banton. It was a tough ask for Taylor and he goes down fighting. NZ - 89/6 in 9.4 overs

13:02 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Parkinson strikes again

Matthew Parkinson did not get his maiden T20I hat-trick but he got the wicket of Daryl Mitchell on the third ball of his second over. New Zealand's run chase derailed by leg-spinner Parkinson. NZ - 78/5 in 8.3 overs

12:53 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Munro falls

Colin Munro throws his wicket away. Munro gets out in a similar way as Colin de Grandhomme. Matthew Parkinson gets two in two. Parkinson is on a hat-trick. Munro falls for 30 from 21 deliveries. NZ - 70/4 in 7 overs

12:51 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Grandhomme falls

The in-form batsman Colin de Grandhomme gets out early. Grandhomme gets caught by Tom Banton at deep mid wicket. Mathew Parkinson continues to impress. Big wicket for England. NZ - 70/3 in 6.5 overs

12:46 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Seifert disappoints again

Tim Seifert disappoints with the bat again. Seifert gets out for just 3 runs, a leading-edge off his bat. Chris Jordan gets the wicket. In-form batsman Colin de Grandhomme comes to bat. End of powerplay overs. NZ - 61/2 in 6 overs

12:39 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Guptill falls

Martin Guptill's innings comes to an end. Tom Curran bowls a yorker and Guptill could not dig that one out over the fielder inside the 30-yard circle. Dawid Malan takes the catch. NZ - 54/1 in 4.3 overs

12:35 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Guptill's double blow

Martin Guptill looks in fine nick. Guptill hits Chris Jordan for two massive sixes. The Kiwi opener is hitting the ball from the middle of the bat. 15 runs from Jordan's first over.

New Zealand's highest successful run chase is 202 against Zimbabwe. NZ - 49/0 in 4 overs

12:30 (IST)08 Nov 2019

Tom Curran starts well. Eight runs from his first over including a boundary like his brother. Next over, Martin Guptill hits the first maximum of the innings. New Zealand will need more of those to come anywhere near the target.

Colin Munro gets down the ground and hits Sam for a boundary. 18 runs from Sam's first over. This is the kind of over New Zealand wanted. NZ - 34/0 in 3 overs

12:21 (IST)08 Nov 2019
Run chase underway

Not an ideal start when you're chasing a gigantic score. Just eight runs from the first over bowled by Sam Curran. New Zealand need Colin Munro to fire today. NZ - 8/0 in 1 over

12:06 (IST)08 Nov 2019
End of first innings

England record their highest T20I total and several records broken in the first innings. England post 241 for 3 on the board. New Zealand need to pull off record run chase to beat England and win the T20I series. Target - 242
