SIX! Tim Southee to Eoin Morgan. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Finished in style, captain Morgan gets the job done for his side. England have taken a 1-0 lead in this five match T20I series against New Zealand thanks to a seven wicket victory in Christchurch. Their bowling set the game up, restricting the Black Caps to 5-153 with debutants Sam Curran and Pat Brown taking their maiden wickets. Ross Taylor and Daryl Mitchell added some late impetus, however James Vince was the star batsman of the day with a majestic 59 in the chase. He timed the ball better than anyone on a surface that turned out to be slightly slow, earning the player of the match award. He was visibly disappointed at his tame dismissal, the third of Mitchell Santner's victims in an impressive display from the left-arm spinner. It wasn't enough for the Kiwis though as the tourists cruised to the target with nine deliveries remaining. We'll be back for the Second T20I which is in Wellington on Sunday.

FOUR! Tim Southee to Eoin Morgan. Full toss, off stump on the front foot driving, past long off for 4 runs. Southee is so close to the perfect yorker and still the ball goes to the fence, not much he could've done better there. Santner put in a great effort but couldn't stop it getting past him.

OUT! Caught. Mitchell Santner to James Vince. Stock ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Guptill. What a way to go, maybe this is the moment of luck New Zealand need to drag themselves back into the contest. Santner serves up a juicy delivery and Vince can only swat it into the safe hands of Guptill. He's really frustrated with that, he's done all the hard work and can't see England over the line.

SIX! Tim Southee to James Vince. Short, outside off stump down the track pulling, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Clobbered into the sightscreen with a flat-bat, it's not often you see that sort of brute force from Vince.
