England lost the 3rd T20I against New Zealand by 14 runs

If we look to the current ICC T20I ranking, the current ICC Cricket World Cup winner is standing on the 2nd position where the Black Caps is far behind. They have grabbed the 6th position! But when the Black Caps are facing the English team at the home venue, the team of Morgan cannot give the best answer against the New Zealand bowlers. As a result, England lost the 3rd T20I against New Zealand by 14 runs!

The T20I series between New Zealand and England consists of five matches and already three matches have successfully finished. Now, it seems that New Zealand is going to win the T20I series against the World Cup winner. Though when the T20I series started, the guest team won the inaugural match and so, the fans of the English team thought their team could manage the series. Still, England has a chance of winning the series if they can manage the next two matches victories consecutively.

The 3rd T20I between the home team New Zealand and the guest team England took place at the Saxton Oval, Nelson earlier today. Two English players Tom Banton and Matt Parkinson made their T20I debut through the match. The Black Caps won the toss and decided to bat first. Like the 2nd match, they wanted to present a good score against England and they did it successfully.

Martin Guptill and Colin Munro opened the innings for New Zealand and they jointly added 40 runs. Munro could not add more than 6 runs but Guptill added 33 runs so far. Top orders of the team got runs in the match. Colin de Grandhomme scored 55 runs in 35 balls and also the rest players added good runs. So, by losing 7 wickets, the home team added 180 runs in 20 overs. The English bowlers were too expensive on that day. They gave extra 16 runs. Tom Curran took two wickets highest for the guest team.

Later, England came to chase the score but openers of the team could not add many runs but scoring 27 runs, opener Tom Banton was gone. Dawid Malan and James Vince played well jointly and almost chased the score but after their return to the dressing room, no players could make stand. Malan added 55 runs and James Vince added 49 runs so far. In 20 overs, England scored 166 runs losing 7 wickets so far.
