- New Zealand 223 all out (49.4 overs); England 225-4 (37.5 overs)
- England win by six wickets
Ben Stokes put in a man-of-the-match performance in his second game back in England colours, leading them to a six-wicket victory over New Zealand to square the ODI series. Figures of two for 42 saw the all-rounder play a part in bowling out the hosts for 223, before a well-judged 63 not out helped win the game with 73 balls to spare.
This was Stokes’ first half-century (11th in all ODIs) since that ODI in Bristol. One made with an appreciation that no risks needed to be taken on a pitch that, for all New Zealand’s woes when put in by Eoin Morgan, allowed the ball to come onto the bat nicely. The sole moment of aggression from Stokes was one of his eight boundaries – a solitary six when charging at Trent Boult and sending him back over his head.
