commentary

Over 48. 9 runs. Bowler: Kyle Mills. England: 270/2(rr 5.62)

Mills to Root. Back of a length, outside off stump down the track pushing, well timed to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Watling. Root strokes the winning run to cap another impressive display by the young Yorkshireman. He played a dazzling innings, full of improvisation and classical strokes and continues to adapt to the nuances of international cricket. Brendon McCullum spilt a chance to dismiss him, but England's run chase rarely looked in doubt once he joined the steady Trott in the middle. The experienced top three all did their jobs, proving New Zealand's score was below par.<br>Anderson and Finn set the tone with excellent opening spells and despite Brendon McCullum's fireworks and Taylor's hard work, a good pitch and short boundaries was always going to make a successful defence difficult. The pattern of alternate wins on this tour is maintained and another good wicket awaits in Auckland for the series decider.
