As it happened: NZ v England, 1st T20

After finishing runners-up, England are most likely to field a new team with most players being rested.

England will like to forget their five-run loss to India on Sunday and look to move on by winning the first T20 and also the series. The Eoin Morgan led side is pretty inexperienced when compared to New Zealand as England have selection woes going into the match.

The good news for the hosts is that Kevin Pietersen is making a comeback after an injury layoff and more importantly has warmed up with a century for Surrey.
