New Zealand defeated England by three wickets at Seddon Park.

The Cricketer crunches the numbers from the game...

TOP-DRAWER TAYLOR

Ross Taylor’s match-winning century was his 18th in the format and took the batsman through the 7,000 run barrier. 

The experienced batsman has played in 202 ODIs with an average of 45.35. No New Zealander has more one-day hundreds than Taylor and only Nathan Astle (7,090) and Stephen Fleming (8,007) have scored more ODI runs.

ROOT RACKS UP ANOTHER FIFTY

Joe Root continues to rack up one-day fifties with tremendous ease, today marked his 27th ODI fifty but those three figures continue to elude him. Root hit 71 from 75 deliveries including five fours and one six before being bowled by Colin Munro.

It is now an unlucky 13 innings without an ODI century for England’s Test skipper.

WOAKES 101

Chris Woakes’ dismissal of Colin Munro marked his 100th scalp in one-day internationals. The Warwickshire allrounder finished with figures of two for 47 but couldn’t halt New Zealand’s victory charge when tasked with bowling the final over.

LATHAM PASSES 2K

Tom Latham also found himself passing a milestone after hitting 79 alongside Taylor. The knock was the wicketkeeper-batsman’s 10th ODI fifty and saw him pass 2,000 one-day runs.

154

It had been 154 days since Ben Stokes’ last ODI appearance for England. The allrounder made 12 with the bat before taking two for 43 - claiming the wickets of Latham and Colin de Grandhomme - with the ball.
