The thrilling tie played out by England and New Zealand in Napier is one of those days when a captain really earns his match fee. With New Zealand needing seven from the last over and all his main bowlers used up, Paul Collingwood turned to the part-time medium pace of Luke Wright who produced a nerveless final over... New Zealand after winning the toss sent England into and the England pile up the runs as the pitch favours batting a lot more.... PaulCollingwood six 6's in his knock of 54....Other players contributed to the score were Mustard who socred 83,Cook scored 68,bell socred 43 and pietersen scored 50...Finally England set a target of 341 from 50 overs for the kiwis...... Then Nz batting came as the chase was a fighting one... Ryder and Mccullum shared a partnership of 70 runs from 10 overs....Then Jamie How who played a brilliant knock shared 90 plus partnerships with Mccullum and Taylor..... How socred a fighting hundred of 139 in which he hit ten 4's and three 6's.... But however his knock goes in vain...Vettori who wasted some balls in the slog overs and that was the reason that the match has ended in a tie.... However it was a day of fantastic cricket played by both the teams in the odi's...Hope we will wait for the result of the last match to be played at Christchurch on Saturday... NewZealand leads the series 2-1.............
