Chasing 165, New Zealand recovered from 103/9 to take their game against England to the last over, but fell short by 13 runs in the end in Abu Dhabi. After Martin Guptill got the Blackcaps off to a flyer with his 41, England clawed their way back into the contest as wickets tumbled in a heap. Ish Sodhi and Todd Astle did string together a 47-run stand for the final wicket but their late resistance was not adequate to power the Kiwis over the finish line.
