Ross Taylor blasts Black Caps to memorable win against England

Ross Taylor blasts Black Caps to memorable win against England

When the pair were going well together, England were poised on 267 for one in the 38th over and set to break all sorts of records in the most southerly worldwide venue in world cricket. The middle order then crumbled to poor strokes around Joe Root, who also eventually made a hundred and had put on 190 with Bairstow. Then it was down to Williamson and Ross Taylor to steer the innings. He made a magnificent 181 not out as New Zealand levelled the series with one match...

At two for two England were eyeing a series win but a 187 run fourth wicket stand between Taylor (180 not out) and Tom Latham (71) wrested the game back New Zealand's way when the run rate at one stage had closed in on 10 an over.

He came to the crease in the third over after openers Martin Guptill and Colin Munro both fell for ducks, the latter a golden duck.

Eoin Morgan is determined that his England team will not curb their ambitious tactics after a collapse of eight for 46 wasted a position of enormous strength in the fourth ODI against New Zealand, and ultimately contributed to a five-wicket defeat.

It was just like old times for Bairstow and Root, who have known each other since their early teens.

But he went on to finish the job, scoring his 19th ODI century, eclipsing his high score and setting a new high score at the venue with 181.

While Latham eventually departed attempting to tonk seamer Tom Curran out of the park, big-hitter Colin de Grandhomme (23) and Henry Nicholls (13 not out), who won the match by flicking a ball off his pads for six, chipped in.

"It's right up there [as one of my best innings] and it was nice to be there at the end".

It came off 106 balls and included 14 fours and seven sixes.

But Santner was culpable when he put down an easier chance at extra-cover off Trent Boult to reprieve Bairstow on 74.

Taylor smashed 6 sixes and a staggering 17 fours as the England bowlers had no answers to his onslaught.

Bairstow slammed his 3rd ODI ton of his career with a superb 138.

Led by Bairstow's and Joe Root's centuries, the visitors plundered 335-9 - at the time the second highest score at the University Oval in an ODI. England lost six wickets for 21 runs.

Unable to run freely, he concentrated on hitting boundaries, taking New Zealand to the position where they needed 80 off the final 10 overs. England regained the upper hand with a piece of good fortune, when Santner (41) was run out at the non-striker's end in the 46th over.
