England kept the series alive with a 76-run win in the 4th game of the 5-match T20I series against New Zealand as the scoreline now reads 2-2. After back to back defeats, England came up with an outrageous batting performance thanks to a record partnership between Dawid Malan (103*) and Eoin Morgan (91). They added 182 runs for the 3rd wicket as England finished with 241/3. Barring a 54-run opening stand which came in 4.3 overs, the home team never looked comfortable in the chase. They eventually got bowled out for 165 in the 17th over.
All the statistical highlights from England’s huge win over New Zealand in the Napier T20I:
A big defeat for the home team:
76 – The 76-run defeat in this game is the 3rd biggest T20I loss for New Zealand in terms of runs. They lost to Pakistan by 103 runs while chasing a target of 184 in the 2010 Christchurch T20I. Earlier in 2017, the Kiwis finished 78 runs behind South Africa’s total of 185 in the Auckland T20I.
England’s record total:
241/3 – The total of 241/3 by England is now their highest total in the T20I format surpassing the 230/8 they posted while chasing in the 2016 WT20 game against South Africa.
Morgan equals Rohit:
6 – Eoin Morgan now has scored six fifty-plus scores as captain in T20I victories for England; the joint-most by any captain in T20I wins. Rohit Sharma, on Thursday night, scored his 6th knock in excess of 50 runs as captain in a T20I win. Interestingly, both Morgan and Rohit have only hit six 50+ scores as captain and all resulted in wins.
Skipper Southee finally gets out:
95 – Tim Southee has been dismissed for the first time in T20Is as captain. He batted in seven innings scoring 95 runs at a strike rate of 169.64 before.
Taylor @ 8000:
8007 – Ross Taylor completed 8000 runs in International cricket on New Zealand soil when he passed his individual score of 7 runs. Taylor thus became the first player to aggregate 8000 International runs in New Zealand. Overall, he is the 18th player to score over 8000 International runs in a country.
Parkinson’s expensive 4-fer:
4/47 – Matt Parkinson’s 4/47 is now the 2nd most expensive 4-wicket haul in T20I cricket. Yuzvendra Chahal conceded 52 runs for his 4-wicket haul against Sri Lanka in the 2017 Indore T20I.
2 – Parkinson is only the 2nd spinner from England to bag a 4-wicket haul in the T20I format. Joe Denly took 4/19 against Sri Lanka in last year’s Colombo T20I.
Guptill @ 200:
202 – Martin Guptill completed 200 sixes in International cricket on New Zealand soil with the first of the three sixes he hit today. Thus, Guptill became only the 3rd player to hit over 200 International sixes after Brendon McCullum (230) and Chris Gayle (212).
Morgan @ 10000:
10033 – Eoin Morgan went past 10000 runs in International cricket during his 91-run knock in this match. As many as 84 players tallied 10000 International runs but Morgan is the only player to have represented two countries in this process.
Southee goes past Rashid and Malinga:
40 – Tim Southee now has taken 40 wickets in T20Is on New Zealand soil; the most number of wickets for any bowler in any country in the T20I format. Lasith Malinga and Shakib Al Hasan picked up 39 wickets apiece at home while Rashid Khan also has 39 T20I scalps in India.
