  • Tim Southee celebrates the wicket of England batsman Eoin Morgan during the third ODI in Wellington on Saturday

The tourists appeared sure to prevail in Dunedin when Jonny Bairstow's wonderfully clean striking and Joe Root's flawless foil took them to 267 for one with twin hundreds in an all-Yorkshire stand of 190. The middle order then crumbled to poor strokes around Joe Root, who also eventually made a hundred and had put on 190 with Bairstow.

Anyone who doubted Ross Taylor's importance to the Black Caps should be scoffing their face with humble pie.

Yet the demise of Bairstow sparked a bad England collapse and even though they mustered 335 for nine they were under par for conditions and gave New Zealand the chance to level what has been a brilliant 50-over series.

From that moment on the former New Zealand captain, who this week talked about how an eye operation a year ago has given him a new lease of life at 33, could barely run between the wickets but it did not stop him.

Eoin Morgan is determined that his England team will not curb their ambitious tactics after a collapse of eight for 46 wasted a position of vast strength in the fourth ODI against New Zealand, and ultimately contributed to a five-wicket defeat. Get the other eye checked mate just in case!

Ross Taylor struck his career best ODI score with an unbeaten 181.

The pair's 187-run partnership (fourth-wicket record v England) eclipsed the 178-run stand they notched in the series opener.

When Latham departed Colin de Grandhomme arrived at the crease and joined Taylor in the boundary hitting festival making 23 off just eleven balls.

But as soon as Bairstow fell after a magnificent 138 off 106 balls with seven sixes the whole complexity of the match changed and New Zealand swept back in contention.

Taylor, however, said his side were well aware of their issues and were still in the series if they were sensible about how they batted at University Oval.

But the day belonged to Taylor, as he and Henry Nicholls successfully struck the three runs they needed from the final over to triumph.

But Santner was culpable when he put down an easier chance at extra-cover off Trent Boult to reprieve Bairstow on 74.

Jason Roy struggled to 15 from 26 balls, Jonny Bairstow hit 19 from 39, and Joe Root a much faster 20 from 22 balls. England lost six wickets for 21 runs.

New Zealand won the toss and elected to field first in warm and sunny conditions.

His knock gave the Kiwis victory by five wickets with three deliveries remaining as they ultimately surpassed England's total of 335-9 with a bit to spare.
