Deepankar Kaur | cricket20

New Zealand bounced back in commanding style to seal a cruising 55 run victory against England at Seddon Park in Hamilton to level their t20 International series with one game to go.

Having suffered an heavy defeat on Saturday, the Kiwiís recovered in style thanks to skipper Brendon McCullum who smashed 74 runs from just 38 balls which included six boundaries and five sixes to leave England needing to chase down a total of 193.

Martin Guptil (47) and Hamish Rutherford (40) offered support at the top of the order and even though the Kiwis suffered a mini collapse towards the end of their inning they were still able to record a total of 192-6.

Faced with such a large ruc hase England never recovered from the early loss of Alex Hales (5) and Luke Wright (0) in the second over thanks to a double strike from Mitchell McClenaghan (2-24).

Jos Buttler (54) offered some resistantís with a well played half century but with wickets falling at regular intervals England were restricted to a total of just 137.
