Frontline bowlers Liam Plunkett and Mark Wood return to England's lineup after missing its most recent match against Australia.

Both captains were injury doubts on the eve of the match but while Williamson was cleared to lead his side, Jos Buttler's appearance at the toss confirmed Eoin Morgan had not recovered from a groin complaint.

A final equation of 37 from the last three overs was theoretically achievable but when Boult toppled Jordan and Plunkett with consecutive yorkers, the issue was settled. Williamson starred alongside Martin Guptill with the bat as New Zealand posted an imposing 196 for 5. Guptill provided the early momentum, hitting cleanly through the line, and by the end of the Powerplay New Zealand were 50 for 1.

The defeat means England are now struggling to qualify for the tri-series final, also involving Australia, who are top of the table.

Lehmann is also not anxious about Warner's lack of runs in the current T20 tri-series that also includes the Kiwis and England.

Mark Wood will curse the errant throw which spared Black Caps skipper Kane Williamson on nought - he went on to make a match-high 72 and saved much of the punishment for Wood - but the tourists were outmatched.

Lloyd believes New Zealand had better bowling plans and urged England to use part-time bowlers such as Dawid Malan and James Vince to give opposition batsmen something different to think about. Mark Wood and Rashid picked up 2 wickets each for England and were most successful in the innings.

Williamson's maximums came behind square, straight down the ground, over deep mid-wicket and over fine leg. Alex Hales got England's run chase off to a fast start with 47 from 24 balls before Dawid Malan gave England hope for victory as he scored 59 from 40 deliveries.

The former Chesham Grammar School pupil smashed five fours and three sixes as England looked set to chase down a target of 197 in 20 overs. Chapman scored 20, while wicketkeeper Seifert hit two sixes in his six-ball innings of 14 to take the hosts to the equal highest Twenty20 global score on the ground.

"I thought the ball was going to roll a bit further.then it didn't", he said of his misjudged single. "But at the same time, as we've seen throughout the summer already, guys have had time off, they've missed a few games for those reasons and it's a balancing act moving forward because the volume of cricket seems to increase every year".

"It's been hugely frustrating because of the line-up we've got".
