Dawid Malan blasts unbeaten century to lift England

RUN OUT REVIEW

RUN OUT REVIEW

Whisper it, but a cricket series between New Zealand and England is tied - and there might not be a satisfactory conclusion in store.

It marked England's highest-ever T20 total with captain Morgan and Dawid Malan starring with the bat in Napier on Friday against what is a very strong New Zealand bowling attack.

The partnership between Dawid Malan and Eoin Morgan, which is the fourth-highest for any wicket in all T20Is.

Malan (103*) recorded a maiden T20I century while Morgan blasted 41-ball 91 to propel England to 241/3, their highest ever total in the format.

Malan finished 103 not out.

Bairstow was dropped from England's new-look Test squad after a disappointing Ashes series where he averaged 23.77 with a solitary half-century.

"I said before the game that our method doesn't really waver at any stage, just our skill level needs to get better", Morgan told Test Match Special.

Fabbri scores twice in 1st game, Red Wings beat Bruins
The Bruins had several good chances to tie it before Mantha's empty-net goal sealed the outcome with 1:28 remaining. David Pastrnak got an assist to stretch his career-best point streak to 14 games (15-16-31) for the Bruins .

"The intent (Morgan) showed from ball one took the pressure off me especially early on in my innings".

Captain Tim Southee, who chose to bowl first, was their top-scorer with 39 off 15 including two fours and four sixes.

Their assault neutralised a shaky start with Jonny Bairstow (8) falling in the fourth over. Malan's is the second fastest T20I hundred by any batsman against New Zealand; Richard Levi's 45-ball hundred remains the fastest.

76 - Runs by England in the last four overs of their innings - the most by any team in a T20I.

However Malan provided the inexorable thrust, posting a second half century from 17 deliveries and reaching a century which included nine fours and six sixes.

At 49-0 after four overs, they had a glimmer of hope, but Martin Guptill picked out mid-wicket, the big hitting Colins - Munro and de Grandhomme - holed out in consecutive balls, and neither Tim Seifert nor Mitchell could get going.

But Guptill, having reached 27 from 14 balls, thrashed a delivery from Tom Curran into the leg side and found the only man within 50 meters - Malan.
