New Zealand v England: Eoin Morgan Remains A Doubt For Tourists

Warner has scored a paltry 12 runs from three matches after averaging a lowly 14.6 during Australia's hefty One Day International series loss against England

England gave a decent account of themselves with the bat, Alex Hales racing to 47 and Dawid Malan making a neat 59, but a regular tumble of wickets left them 184 for nine at the close.

About an hour later, Williamson was finally out for 72 off 46 balls, setting up New Zealand's 196 for five, which led to a 12-run win over England.

The defeat means England are now struggling to qualify for the tri-series final, also involving Australia, who are top of the table.

"He's looking at volume of cricket, bringing new players into the global game and there's sense that he makes, but at the same time from a personal perspective T20 cricket is so prevalent in the worldwide and domestic game and you play a lot more of it nowadays, and it's something you want to be a part of". Adil Rashid's 2nd over, 9th of the innings saw Guptil deposit him over the line for a six.

New Zealand will now face Australia in Auckland on Friday, before taking on England again in Hamilton two days later.

Blazing half-centuries from Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson have guided New Zealand to a 12 run win over England in their Twenty20 cricket worldwide in Wellington.

New Zealand are also without a win in the tournament after their opening defeat against Australia in Sydney.

Williamson's innings included four sixes as he and Guptill put on 82 for the second wicket.

The Kiwis could field two debutants after wicketkeeper Tim Seifert and ex-Hong Kong batsman Mark Chapman were added to the squad in place of Tom Blundell, Tom Bruce and Seth Rance.

After Jason Roy fell early, Hales and Malan quickly cut into the deficit but England stuttered in the middle overs, losing four wickets for 50 runs.

"England went with pace: Chris Jordan, Plunkett, Wood, David Willey - it doesn't work, you've got to have a little bit more guile".

I'm not going to blame it on the batsmen.

Experienced Martin Guptill provided a breezy start the side when he smashed 4 boundaries in 5 balls in 2 overs.

At the 10-over mark, England were 90 for two, seven runs ahead of New Zealand on comparative rate, but then lost James Vince run out by Kane Williamson's direct hit from mid off.

"We played a lot better cricket today and it's just disappointing not to get over the line".

"It's been hugely frustrating because of the line-up we've got".
