Blackcaps look to keep tri-series finals hopes alive against England

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson could hand over the reins to Tim Southee left for Tuesday's England match if his

England's bowlers were relatively loose, with legspinner Adil Rashid (2-36) and speedster Mark Wood (2-51) the most successful.

England were on track to chase down the total for much of their innings with Alex Hales (47 off 24) and Dawid Malan (59 off 40 balls) setting a cracking pace.

England won the toss and elected to bowl Tuesday in the Trans-Tasman Tri-Series Twenty20 cricket global against New Zealand at the Wellington Regional Stadium.

They finished on 184 for nine and will bow out of the series should New Zealand beat Australia on Friday or if they fail to defeat the Kiwis in Hamilton 48 hours later.

David Lloyd believes England's bowlers lacked "guile" as they were beaten by New Zealand in the latest game of the T20 Tri-Series. Guptill targeted Rashid, taking him for consecutive sixes over the leg side - the first raising a 31-ball fifty - while Williamson started to relocate the middle of the bat, which has proved elusive in the last few weeks.

With New Zealand aiming to bounce back from their loss against Australia when they take on England in Wellington on Tuesday, Williamson admitted that the 10-day break has been extremely beneficial for all the players. Mark Chapman and wicketkeeper Tim Seifert are set to debut at the Westpac Stadium, with Tom Bruce and Tom Blundell making way, and Williamson said it was just reward for their form domestically.

Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich to become the Indianapolis Colts head coach
"We are extremely excited to announce Frank Reich as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts ", Colts owner & CEO Jim Irsay said. According to the NFL Network , the Colts are hoping Reich can bring out the best in quarterback Andrew Luck.

On a pitch that appeared worn and torn, Buttler won the toss and elected to bowl, only for Guptill and Williamson to put on 82 for the second wicket partnership.

England might have Eoin Morgan back in the team and they would also hope their ace seamer Plunkett takes the field.

Williamson said he had spoken to Doull, who had said his comments hadn't come across as he meant them.

Boult's first ball, to Jason Roy, was the first to misbehave as the England opener raised the periscope to a short one that startled him. "I spoke to Simon afterwards, he wanted to go for a coffee".

'We don't play a huge amount of global Twenty20s and the boys haven't played an bad lot of this game over the last few months so we've got to work out why we're slow in locating the rhythm needed for the shorter game.

"Playing aggressive cricket, an aggressive brand and all that, that's not just what we're about. So it's important we don't get ahead of ourselves".
