Records - Most runs in CPL Do one-sided affairs like Sunday's benefit anyone? Hong Kong's international inexperience was on display. Enough bench strength to afford Amir rest Saqlain Mushtaq on the need to consider Mohammad Amir's needs and the back-up options available to Pakistan should he opt to rest. Would've been better if we'd played tougher opponents before - Anshuman Rath. Worn-out wicket aided reverse swing - Usman Khan Pakistan fast bowler Usman Khan talks about the 31st over of the Hong Kong innings during which he took three wickets.

Match Day, post-match show: Match Day, mid-innings show: Jonny Bairstow completed back-to-back centuries to power England to a sixth ODI series win on the spin with a seven-wicket victory over New Zealand in Christchurch.

Bairstow followed his in Dunedin with a blistering from 60 balls at Hagley Oval as the tourists cantered past New Zealand's all out in The Yorkshireman moved from 50 to in just 20 deliveries as he sealed a ball ton - the third-quickest by an Englishman - striking six sixes and nine fours, including three maximums off spinner Ish Sodhi in the 18th over.

Bairstow, who eventually fell hit wicket, had earlier taken a stunning one-handed boundary catch amid a disciplined bowling performance from England as they dismissed the Black Caps in Chris Woakes and Adil Rashid shared six wickets as New Zealand laboured without Dunedin match-winner Ross Taylor, who missed the game with a thigh issue.

Kane Williamson's side tumbled to in Taylor's absence, before Mitchell Santner 67 and Henry Nicholls 55 revived the innings with a stand of 84 for the seventh wicket. However, Bairstow and Alex Hales 61 - the latter playing his first game of the series due to Jason Roy suffering a back spasm - shared an opening partnership of in Ben Stokes 26no off 18 wrapped up victory with a six off the expensive Sodhi as England condemned the hosts to their first ODI defeat on the ground in nine games and ensured skipper Eoin Morgan 8 celebrated a series victory in his th ODI.

Morgan elected to bowl and saw Woakes give England a terrific start when he had Colin Munro caught behind from the third ball of the match. Just the start England wanted, its wide outside off from Woakes and Williamson tries to heave it to leg and misses.

Two singles follow but Curran finishes the over brilliantly, two dots and a single. The good news for New Zealand is that Kane Williamson keeps strike with a single from the last ball.

New Zealand need 22 from 12 balls. A slower ball to Southee, who tries to heave the ball over the legside. Instead the ball goes up, and up and up. Ben Stokes is underneath as it returns to earth though and he is just the man you want in this situation - taken with minimal fuss. Curran is not happy. The field changes but there is an easy single into the legside every time and it means New Zealand can take singles from the next four and a leg bye from the last.

The second is for Tim Southee from the last ball and he'll keep strike. New Zealand need 34 from 24 balls. Santner run out Woakes 41 - New Zealand A big, big wicket and a real stroke of fortune for England. Williamson thumps a drive back towards Woakes, who gets a fingertip on it and diverts the ball onto the stumps.

Santner is backing up and can't get back. So unlucky for him but England won't care! Oh, and he really should have got Williamson as well!

A slower ball, chipped towards midwicket but Root is too deep, can't reach the catch and can't make the stop, four and a big four for New Zealand. Four singles form it as Williamson and Santner are happy to see off the England leg-spinner. He finishes with from hsi 10 overs, superb from him.

New Zealand need 45 from 36 balls. Can he produce here? Two from the first three balls before Santner smashes a cover drive away for four. Another single and it's 49 needed from 42 balls. His two remaining overs could be crucial to the outcome of this match. He starts with two dots to Williamson, who then takes a single.

Santner thumps one straight and is able to get back for two but is then beaten by the next. A single from the last ball, four from it and New Zealand need 56 from 48 balls. The next ball is hit high over mid on, who is in the ring, and bounces just short of the rope - four.

Two more singles make ti seven from the over, New Zealand need 60 from 54 balls. Four singles come from the next four balls before Wood stops Williamson getting the last ball away.
