That brings us to the end of this thrilling encounter. Yes, forget about the qualification part, it still was a very close finish. Now we will move back to Eden Park in Auckland for the final match of this triangular series. The Trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand and Australia clash for the title on 21st February, 2018. Hope to see you then at 1900 local time (0600 GMT). Meanwhile, there are a couple of T20Is coming your way. In the first, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka clash against each other while South Africa and India clash in the other. Switch tabs to catch those. Till the next time, ta-ta, take care!
The losing skipper, Kane Williamson, says that England played very well but the spirits in his side are high. Reckons that his southpaws batting with the ball spinning in was a positive for them. Credits Martin Guptill for playing a holding role in the middle, after blasting his way in the previous game. About Mark Chapman, he says that this was a mature knock from the youngster that helped them bring the game close. About going back to the run-hungry conditions for the final, he says that they'll look to execute their plans better in the finals.
England skipper, Eoin Morgan, is adjudged as the Man of the Match. He admits to this not being a happy feeling due to their inability to qualify. Says it is difficult when Colin Munro and Martin Guptill come out the way they did. States that the plan against Munro was to tuck him up but he seized the advantage with the field restrictions in place. Reckons that they need to maintain their skill levels, something they did today to notch up a win. Ends saying that they would start preparing for the ODI series after a couple of days of rest.
Earlier in the evening, England were aided by Eoin Morgan's unbeaten 80, that helped them post a decent score on the board. He was assisted by Dawid Malan's 53 and their 93-run stand was instrumental in them getting to 194. But lack of support from the middle order meant that they ended by well short of where they could have got. That made it an easier task for the hosts to set about, which they partially completed. We'll get the presentation to you in a bit.
Post that, England managed to keep the runs in check, even after an over from Chris Jordan which went awry, giving a life to Chapman after he overstepped on the delivery he cleaned the southpaw up. Jordan stayed wicketless, as did David Willey, who failed to exert much control with the new ball. The spinners Adil Rashid and Liam Dawson did well to keep the batters quiet, picking up a wicket apiece in the process. However, 18 runs off Dawson's final over just opened the floodgates. After the 175-run mark was breached, the visitors tightened up and ensured at least a win ensues.
As has been the story in recent times, the Kiwis got off to a flier, courtesy Colin Munro and Martin Guptill. The two blasted their way to a 78-run opening stand, 77 of them coming in the Powerplay. Even after that, Guptill was going strong from one end and the runs kept flowing in. There was no respite for the tourists once Mark Chapman made his way in. His 64-run association with the opener ensured that the Black Caps qualify for the finals.
England have won the battle but have lost the war! This is a classic case of a side being unhappy even after winning the game. They needed to restrict the Black Caps up to 174 but that's the task they failed miserably in. Their bowlers didn't help matters then but came back in the end to help them notch up value-less points on the table.

FOUR! The boundary, the essential one in the over! Chapman is doing it here. Full toss on the stumps, Chapman exposes his stumps by moving across yet gets enough bat with his flick through backward square leg for a boundary.

DRAMA! This over just refuses to end. Jordan spears it on the stumps, Chapman walks across and looks to paddle it away but ends up losing the off stick. But hold on, JORDAN HAS OVERSTEPPED YET AGAIN. Chapman is called back to resume his innings.

Well bowled! This is speared full just outside off, Chapman is deceived with that and ends up missing it completely. The ball wasn't too far from the off stick. Wouldn't have mattered though.

Chris Jordan To Colin de Grandhomme
NO BALL FOR HEIGHT! Jordan spears a high full toss outside off, the height on that takes de Grandhomme by surprise. The keeper has a difficult time collecting that and before he does it cleanly and returns the throw to the bowler, a bye is stolen as well.

FOUR! Good ball but streaky runs for Colin. Jordan spears in a yorker on leg, de Grandhomme gets his bat down in time. The ball goes off the inside edge and races to the fine leg fence for a boundary.

Colin de Grandhomme is in next. He is a powerful striker and it's just a matter of how long, now.

Tom Curran To Ross Taylor OUT!
GONE! Ross Taylor fails to add his finishing touches tonight. Gets full length delivery around off, but it is a slower one. Rosco looks to go big on the on side but gets it off the outer half towards covers. Morgan runs to his left and takes it just outside the circle. Just for the numerical fanatics, 22 needed for a Kiwi win.
