NZ vs ENG, 4th T20I, New Zealand v England Twenty20 Series 2019, 08 Nov 2019
England won by 76 runs
BALL BY BALL
Cleaned him up, it was only a matter of time with Boult never looking to get in line. England square the series. England have destroyed New Zealand by the massive margin of 76 runs in Napier to level the T20I series 2-2. Dawid Malan and Eoin Morgan set things up for the tourists, the two left-handers combining for 182 runs in a destructive partnership to take the game away from the Black Caps. Malan became just the second Englishman to score a T20I century and his captain almost became the third before falling in the final over. The Kiwi bowlers were well below their best, wilting under the pressure and serving up plenty of rubbish. They got off to a flier in response with the bat before wickets began to tumble. Matt Parkinson snared four wickets, reward for bowling slowly and inviting the big shots. England weren't perfect in the field but they were always ahead of the game thanks to their colossal total. So we are set for a thrilling decider in Auckland on Sunday, definitely not an occasion to miss.
16.5 - C Jordan to T Boult
Half volley, middle stump backing away driving, missed to.
Boult is a very unconventional batsman to put it mildly. He moves all around the crease and plays some very strange shots. Jordan seems to find it quite funny.
