32.4 Ish Sodhi to Ben Stokes

SIX! Ish Sodhi to Ben Stokes. Googly length ball, middle stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. There it is. Stokes hits England's eighth six to wrap up an emphatic victory with 17.2 overs remaining. England take the series 3-2 in a one-sided finale. Chris Woakes and the rest of the English attack stifled the Kiwis and the home side could only get a disappointing 223. England never gave New Zealand a sniff in reply, Jonny Bairstow smacking 104 from 60 balls. Alex Hales was happy to play second fiddle alongside him and he made a steady 61 on his return to the side. Cameos from Joe Root and Ben Stokes put the finishing touches to a clinical victory. We now look forward to the two-test series between these sides.


32.3 Ish Sodhi to Ben Stokes

FOUR! Ish Sodhi to Ben Stokes. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Short, wide, four. One to win.


32.2 Ish Sodhi to Ben Stokes

Ish Sodhi to Ben Stokes. Googly length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to long off for 2 runs, dropped catch by Chapman. Stokes is desperate to get this done. It's a teaser for Chapman running back from mid off but he can't quite get there.


32.1 Ish Sodhi to Ben Stokes

Ish Sodhi to Ben Stokes. Googly short, to leg on the back foot cutting, top edge to backward point for no runs, dropped catch by Nicholls. It won't affect the result but that is a terrible drop by Nicholls. The ball came off the cue-end and Nicholls made a hash of it at backward point.
