The opening day’s play of the first Test at the University Oval in Dunedin between New Zealand and England was washed out without a single ball bowled due to heavy rain. The toss did take before the rain had arrived with the Kiwis winning it and asking England to bat first.
England won their 3-match ODI Series 2-1 after thrashing New Zealand by 5 wickets in the Final game at the Eden Park in Auckland on Saturday. It was a pale show from the Kiwis in the Series deciders as they were bowled out for just 185 in 43.5 overs after being asked to bat first by England.
England cruised to an 8-wicket win with 14 balls to spare in the Second ODI against New Zealand at the McLean Park in Napier. The 3-match series is now leveled 1-1 with the decider to be played on the 23rd at Auckland.
It is a known fact that every time New Zealand find themselves in a corner, they somehow or the other manage to find a way out of it. It happened in Australia a couple of seasons ago when they were battered in the first Test and seemed like a hopeless case going into the second, but stung the Aussies...
New Zealand bounced back strongly to beat England in the 2nd T20I at the Seddon Park in Hamilton to level the 3-match series 1-1. England who crushed the hosts by 40 runs in the opening T20I at Auckland were hammered by 55 runs this evening at Hamilton.
