June 06, 2017  21:41

NZ 134-2 (25 ovs) vs England 310 | Scorecard

Williamson swings Stokes on the leg side over midwicket for a four before Taylor cuts a short ball past point for another boundary as NZ take charge of proceedings by getting boundaries regularly and looking to seize the momentum.

Williamson gives Rashid the charge and flicks him along the ground through midwicket for a four. Two balls later he swings him on the leg side but gets it off the inside half of the bat for a single and Taylor picks one.

Williamson comes down the track and lofts Rashid over mid-on but the ball stops after it bounces for just two runs with 20 coming from the last two overs.

England are struggling to contain the flow of runs as Williamson continues to attack. He flicks Stokes over the leg side field for a four and two balls later lofts it over the covers for the same result to take his score into the 70s.

New Zealand have made a good recovery to reach 134 for two in 25 overs at the halfway stage, with another 177 runs needed from 25 overs for victory.

Williamson has stroked his way to 73 from 82 balls, with good support from Taylor, who has made 23 from 34 balls.
