England won the toss and opted to bowl first at Nottingham. New Zealand openers Tom Latham and Will Young saw out the opening spell of James Anderson and Stuart Broad and stitched together a stand of 84 runs. However, Ben Stokes and James Anderson got wickets off successive deliveries to bring England back right in the contest. Stokes dismissed Young for 47 on the final delivery of the 21st over. And then Anderson got the better of Latham as the Kiwi skipper departed for 26. He was unable to keep the pull shot down, and Matthew Potts took a brilliant diving catch at midwicket.
