England take on New Zealand in the 5th T20I on Sunday. The match is set to be played at Eden Park, Auckland. The match commences at 6:30 am (IST).
New Zealand will look to bounce back from the defeat in the 4th T20I. The NZ bowlers were hit to all parts of the ground as England scored 241/3 in their 20 overs. In response, NZ were bowled out for 165, losing the game by a massive 76 runs. England would be pleased with their performance in the last game after losing the previous two T20Is. The series is levelled at 2-2, with the decider to be played on Sunday.
England’s 241 proves too much as our early fire is extinguished in the 17th over on 165 🏏 Off we go to Auckland’s 📪 @edenparknz— BLACKCAPS (@BLACKCAPS) November 8, 2019
