England fail to match Williamson, Guptill

New Zealand ended their three-match losing streak with a 12-run victory over England in a tri-nations Twenty20 cricket global on Tuesday, inspired by an innings of 72 from captain Kane Williamson.

New Zealand got off the mark in the Trans-Tasman Twenty20 worldwide tri-series with a 12-run win over England in the fourth match in Wellington on Tuesday (February 13).

New Zealand s move to shore up the batting also paid off as former Hong Kong global Mark Chapman made a useful cameo of 20 off 13 on his New Zealand debut. After one miserly Munro over, Ish Sodhi removed Hales (47 off 24) with a short one then England were on the slide.

Dawid Malan (59 off 40) blazed away at the end before spinner Mitchell Santner (2-29) did his regular thing to entice a false stroke, then Trent Boult charged in to skittle Chris Jordan and Liam Plunkett in successive deliveries to clinch it.

The 27-year-old world No 3 batsman, who will be around for most of the second half of Yorkshire's 2018 campaign, playing 11 T20 Blast matches and four County Championship fixtures, made the most of a first-ball reprieve, hitting 72 and leading New Zealand to 196-5 in the tri-series T20. Australia are already through to the February 21 final.

It was England's third defeat in a row after losing both their matches in Australia.

Captain Kane Williamson led from the front with an innings of 72 off 46 balls against England.

Kiwi batsman Colin de Grandhomme was aiming to get off the mark with a massive shot that looked to be sailing over the long-on boundary with just Jordan to beat in the outfield.

Debutants Mark Chapman and Tim Seifert were picked to add batting punch and they did late with two sixes apiece, after Williamson and Martin Guptill (65 off 40) rolled them out a red carpet.

Tim Southee has now become the leading wicket taker from New Zealand.

England started brightly in reply before the consistent loss of wickets stifled progress, meaning the tourists fell 12 runs short. We dragged it back pretty well but they got too many. We had to play very good cricket and we did that today'. "It played a lot better than people thought".

"The team were great, we did know how the wicket would play and we were able to build partnerships throughout". We probably didn't get those cameos lower down, myself coming in and failing and that made a difference.

"That's what we need now, so we'll wait and see what happens", Buttler said.

"You can write what you like, that's fine", Williamson said.
