Over 50 New Zealand 339/5/No

It's been one heck of a series. It all started with New Zealand winning the first ODI only for England to come from behind and take the next two. It was an important one for the hosts today and they have come out victorious by chasing a mountain of runs. What this match has done is, it has made the final ODI the decider. Something that we as cricket fans die for. Tune in on 10th March at 1100 Local (2200 GMT previous day) to catch all the action. Until then, goodbye and cheers!
Man of the match, Ross Taylor says this knock will be right up there in the top drawer. Is really happy to have stayed till the end and pull it off for his side. Mentions the partnerships with Williamson and Latham were crucial and credits them as well. Adds the communication with them between the wickets is phenomenal and that he enjoys batting with them. On the injury, he said he was really struggling to run between the wickets and informs when he just crossed 100, the physio asked him whether he wants to bat or leave the field. Smiles and says he is glad that he decided to bat on. Reckons one can't win a game in the first 10 overs but can surely lose it. Informs it's his birthday tomorrow and he wanted to win to enjoy it.
Victorious New Zealand skipper, Kane Williamson also calls it a great game of cricket. Is delighted with the win and that his side thrived under pressure pleases him all the more. Gives a lot of credit to his bowlers with the way they bowled in the second half. Is short of words to describe Ross Taylor's innings and calls it one of the best knocks he has witnessed in a run chase. Admits the intensity was dropped a bit at the start of the first innings but is proud of the boys to gain it back. On the surface, he feels it was a great one and didn't change much throughout the course of the game. Wishes Taylor a speedy recovery and hopes that he plays the next game too.
England skipper, Eoin Morgan starts by saying it was a beauty of a game. Smiles and says it was a good match as the crowd was thoroughly entertained. Adds there was a bit of moisture at the toss and he would have done exactly what Williamson did. States they were very much in the game as their openers set it up beautifully but the collapse towards the end has hurt them big time. Tells us that they bat deep and usually they go hard in that situation, today they just couldn't manage to do it. Credits the hosts' bowlers for pulling things back. Praises Ross Taylor for his outstanding knock which took the game away from them.
Also not to forget the comeback the Kiwis made with the ball towards the end of the first innings. It was that effort which kept them in the game. At one stage when Root and Bairstow were going great guns, 400 looked possible but an inspirational bowling performance by Sodhi saw them being bundled out for a total which the home side, in the end chased down quite comfortably. Stay tuned for the presentation in a while.
Colin de Grandhomme came in and played his shots but there was a little drama towards the end as Chris Woakes and Tom Curran bowled a few tight overs and also picked the wicket of Colin. But Ross Taylor stayed there till the end and ensured he would take his team over the finish line.
It all started with New Zealand losing both their openers for a duck and looked down and out at 2-2. But then Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor joined forces and counter-attacked. They stitched a 84-run stand which did give them a little momentum. However, when Kane Williamson was adjudged out caught behind of Stokes, it seemed like the Kiwis would once again go onto the back foot. That was not the case though. Taylor continued milking the bowler and Tom Latham joined the party after that. The Southpaw did ride his luck as he was dropped once and he survived a few close calls but the two stitched a match defying 187-run stand before the left hander departed.
PHEW! What a game, take a bow Ross Taylor. He walks off to a standing ovation by the crowd by his teammates and he deserves every bit of it. What a run chase and how well did he construct it. They continue their domination on this ground and this victory will surely be one of their best.

Tom Curran to H Nicholls, SIX! BANG! The drama does not last for long as Nicholls finishes it in style! The series is ON! It is 2-2. A full ball on leg stump, Nicholls flicks it over the square leg fence for a biggie. A cool and calm celebration by Henry. He gives Ross Taylor a high-five as NEW ZEALAND WIN BY 5 WICKETS!
49.2
Tom Curran to H Nicholls, Drama, drama right at the end. Another dot. 3 now from 4. A full ball on off, Nicholls smashes it to mid off.
49.1
Tom Curran to H Nicholls, It is all happening out there, an LBW appeal, a run out missed and what not. A fuller ball around leg stump. Nicholls goes for the slog but misses to get hit on the pads. The bowler starts appealing as the batsman sets off for a run. He though is sent back by his partner as the point fielder is quick to the ball. Nicholls slips as he turns but the fielder misses his shy and Henry makes it back. A dot but, 3 needed off 5.

C Woakes to R Taylor, FOUR! Through extra covers! That should probably seal the game. A very full ball outside off, Taylor smashes it through covers for a boundary. 15 runs from the other and 17 from 18 balls now.
46.5
C Woakes to R Taylor, Brilliant effort by the fielder in the deep! A full ball outside off, Taylor carves it away on the off side. he completes one and somehow manages to go for the second and completes it. The crowd is on its feet here for this man, what an effort from him!

Over 46 New Zealand 304/5/No

45.6
Tom Curran to R Taylor, A dot to finish! just 2 from this, 5 from the last 2. A yorker on middle, Taylor gets an inside edge onto his boots. The players make a huge appeal, an ambitious one but the umpire shakes his head. Ross is also down again as he needs to be treated again. 32 in 24, they need exactly 8 per over. The margin between ball and runs increasing now.
45.5
Tom Curran to H Nicholls, Fuller on off, driven through covers for a run.
Henry Nicholls strides out to the middle.
45.4
Tom Curran to de Grandhomme, OUT! De Grandhomme has carved it straight to Chris Woakes! A timely wicket. A good last over and now only 1 run and a wicket of the first four in this. A low full toss outside off, Colin smashes it straight to backward point where Woakes takes a sharp catch. They go upstairs to check the front foot but it is fine. A good cameo by Colin comes to an end but at the wrong time. England trying to fight their way back. 33 needed in 26.
45.3
Tom Curran to de Grandhomme, Another dot! 1 from the first three! A low full toss again. De Grandhomme this time can't take toll of it and he drives it to covers.

45.1
Tom Curran to R Taylor, A full toss, Taylor drives it to mid off and he can't run. Dot to begin with.
