New Zealand v England: Ben Stokes 'emotional' after victory in second ODI

Ben Stokes

On Wednesday however, Stokes put in a man-of-the-match performance with an unbeaten 63 and two wickets for 42 runs as England drew level in the one-day worldwide series against New Zealand with a six-wicket victory in Mount Maunganui.

Opener Martin Guptill offered resistance with a half-century but fell when Jason Roy clung on to a low diving catch at deep mid-wicket.

Stokes made an unbeaten 63 with the bat, took two wickets and featured in two run-outs as England comprehensively outplayed NZ on Wednesday.

Mitchell Santner has starred with the bat in the first two matches and the all-rounder wants to see New Zealand go hard at the England bowlers early in the innings.

"Sloppy" fielding in the first one-day worldwide cost them dear but here there was barely a blemish in a display that featured four sharp run-outs and three outstanding catches among the six safely pouched by England. It was a bit emotional tonight walking off the field not out.

'When I got the nod to come here I wanted to participate fully rather than be eased back into the team. Stokes and Jos Buttler remained unbeaten on 63 and 36 respectively to guide England to victory with 12.1 overs to spare.

The third game of the five-match series takes place in Wellington at 01:00 GMT on Saturday.

The Black Caps won last weekend's first ODI by three wickets.

"The day after the first game I was a little bit sore and to be honest I was really stiff coming back for my second spell. Hopefully it's a stepping stone for other games coming up".

"It's all about building for the future". Morgan, who was dropped on 27 by wicketkeeper Tom Latham and then Henry Nicholls at midwicket on 40, brought up his 35th half century before he hit a return catch to Colin Munro.

"The batting feels in good order and the bowling will come with time".

This was, indeed, arguably England's finest all-round fielding performance under a coach in Trevor Bayliss who demands the highest of standards in the field and only ever really becomes exasperated when his side fail to produce them.

Captain Morgan, who made 62 and shared a fourth-wicket stand of 88 with Stokes, said England benefitted from having the all-rounder's "big character" back in the team. Even when England fumbled, they recovered as Santner sold Southee short after Stokes initially didn't gather the ball cleanly at midwicket.

Stand-in New Zealand captain Tim Southee: "We scrapped through to something that we could bowl at".
