England crumble in chase as NZ win 3rd T20I

A quick-fire half-century from Colin de Grandhomme followed by a disciplined bowling performance by the pacers helped New Zealand beat England by 14 runs in the third T20I at the Saxton Oval played on Tuesday.

Chasing 181, England at one stage were on course of winning with 139/3 on the scoreboard in the 15th over. However, the Black Caps struck with back to back wickets and derailed England’s chase who was ultimately restricted to 166/7 in their allotted 20 overs.

For New Zealand, Lockie Ferguson and Blair Tickner were the chief tormentors as they both picked two-two wickets each and gave 50 runs in their eight overs.
