England down NZ to win ODI series 3-2

By The Assam Tribune

Chester-Le-Street (United Kingdom), June 21 (AP): Jonny Bairstow�s unbeaten 83 powered England to a three-wicket victory over New Zealand to seal a 3-2 victory in their one-day international series yesterday.

The series win over the World Cup finalists comes less than four months after England exited cricket's showpiece in the group stage.

�We have sort of come out of leftfield with a new-look side, Joe Root, Jos Buttler,� England captain Eoin Morgan said.

Despite collapsing to 45-5, England reached its revised target of 192 in 26 overs under the Duckworth-Lewis calculation with an over to spare in the rain-affected game at Chester-le-Street in northeast England. New Zealand 283 for 9.

Bairstow was summoned by England only on Friday to replace wicketkeeper Jos Buttler, who split the webbing below his left thumb in practice.

Bairstow proved he can hit as powerfully as England�s first-choice wicketkeeper-batsman, and secured only England's second ODI series triumph over New Zealand in 21 years.
