T20 tri-series 4th Match: Williamson, Guptill take down England in Wellington

They got there without Colin de Grandhomme, whose effortless lofted drive first ball looked like six, but was instead plucked out of the air by a brilliant one-handed Jordan grab.

Alex Hales and Dawid Malan stabilised the innings with a 65-run partnership before Hales was caught by De Grandhomme at deep midwicket off the bowling of Ish Sodhi for a 24-ball 47, which included six boundaries and three sixes.

David Lloyd believes England's bowlers lacked "guile" as they were beaten by New Zealand in the latest game of the T20 Tri-Series.

When they eventually saw the back of him at the end of the 18th over, yorked by Jordan for 72 (his first half-century in 10 innings), the platform had been set for the debutants Mark Chapman and Tim Seifert to share four sixes.

Williamson said it was a crucial win for New Zealand, who can seal a spot in the final of the triangular series with a win over Australia on Friday in Auckland. Chapman, now a dual worldwide, became the first player born in Hong Kong to play for a full member side since Dermot Reeve's England debut in May 1991.

England will need to rediscover their own batting form to prevail against the Black Caps after losing to Australia twice in their opening matches of the series.

Mark Wood, who returned to England's side along with Liam Plunkett, replacing Tom Curran and Liam Dawson from the side which played at the MCG, made an early breakthrough by removing Colin Munro, caught at fine leg off a short ball.

Astronauts have lived in space every day since the year 2000, performing research that could not be done on Earth otherwise. In President Trump's new proposal it does include more rocket testing with hopes of sending people further into deep space.

Williamson posted his eighth T20 half century but his first in 10 innings since January previous year to guide New Zealand to 196-5 as they batted first after winning the toss.

"We were just off with our skills.We probably didn't bowl as well as we could have and Guptill and Williamson put us under a lot of pressure", he said. Dawid Malan impressed as well and we needed them to extend it further.

"England played Liam Plunkett and Mark Wood and said, "we're going to hit you with pace", he said. "We will see what happens". I can't get away from the plans, I think New Zealand have planned well for this game on this pitch. He thundered his way to 46 off 20 balls - including 20 off one Trent Boult over - and ensured England were just ahead of the asking rate in the early stages of their chase.

The result puts New Zealand in second place on the points table for the inaugural Tri-Series contest. I'm not as fussed about Eoin Morgan - yes, you want your leader, but Root is a bigger factor.
