England vs New Zealand | Wednesday 17 June, 2015 | Trent Bridge, Nottingham | 14.00
New Zealand will be looking to wrap up the one day series against England with another victory in the 4th test at Trent Bridge on Wednesday.
Despite England’s great start to the series, New Zealand have fought back in the 2nd and 3rd ODIs to take the lead 2-1. The hosts put on an impressive display at Headingley, registering several records from a side that barely resembled the World Cup squad.
But after an early lead, England’s plans were dealt heavy blow in the form of two injured players, Chris Jordan and Liam Plunkett. The fast bowling duo look unlikely to return for the remaining matches in the series and twins Craig and Jamie Overton have been called up in their place.
It may be that the brothers stay benched with the hosts fielding Mark Wood and David Willey at the Ageas Bowl. Wood took one for 44 in his 10 overs while Willey took out Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson, although the latter reached a century before he was knocked over.
Ross Taylor found another ton for the Kiwis, enabling the tourists to overtake England’s 302 total with three wickets and six balls remaining. The hosts’ attacking style of cricket may have worked for them in the opening match, but it saw them bowled out in the 3rd ODI with more than four overs left to play.
Captain Eoin Morgan reaffirmed his side’s confidence ahead of the 4th ODI, commenting, “I think for a while now we’ve always played within ourselves and always batter up before the end but for a long time we were looking like getting 350-plus, and that’s exciting to see, particularly when we’re trying to change our mentality with the bat.”
England aren’t the only ones to be struck down by injury ahead of the 4th ODI. New Zealand will play the remaining games without Trent Boult due to a back problem as well as Corey Anderson who was previously sidelined with a similar injury.
Ben Wheeler joined the Black Caps in the last match, picking up three for 63 as England’s final five wickets fell for just 14 runs. Colin Munro, who has been playing for Worcestershire, has now also joined the line-up for the 4th ODI.
