England are 1-0 down, and need to win the last 2 games, to win the series.
Weather looks fine for the week, so, they have no excuses.
Presumably, Broad and Finn will still be missing, and they need Anderson/Swann to play well .. As they have been, to restrict, even a dubious looking N.Zealand batting team.
Think generally, England are a touch over-rated in this form, and N.Zealand have a chance.
N.Zealand win the toss, and decide to bat. Southee is not playing, which is a fairly big loss.
N.Zealand finish on 359-3 ... Some total,especially at the Ageas Bowl, with a mighty impressive knock from Martin Guptil, of 189 not out.
Eng will have to bat, mightily well ..
At the break, N.Zealand big favs .. 1.16
Eng made a poor effort to get the runs, despite being 50-0, with a decent rate.
Big scores are gettable in the new format, with 2 balls etc, but, they went about it poorly.
Decent 100 from Trott.
N.Zealand win e series .. Last game on Wed, becomes a dead rubber.
