New Zealand sealed their 3-ODI Series against England with a massive 86-run victory in the Second ODI at The Rose Bowl in Southampton. The Kiwi victory was set up by a second consecutive century from opener Martin Guptill.

The two-match Test series between England and New Zealand ended with the Englishmen thwarting the unpredictable weather to claim a 2-0 win, which means they will head into the Ashes series high on confidence.
England completed a 2-0 cleansweep over the touring New Zealanders after beating them by 247 runs in the Second and Final Test at Leeds. Graeme Swann captured a match-haul of 10 for 132 to help England wrap up the match on the final day.
If the first day at Lord’s was a poor advert for test cricket then the third day was test cricket at its best.If New Zealand began the day in the ascendency, then James Anderson, continuing his expert display from the second day,and Steven Finn, would soon swing it England’s way.
