The 4-match ODI series between New Zealand and England kicked off with a bang, as Tom Latham‘s led side secured a resounding 8-wicket victory over the hosts. However, England swiftly retaliated in the second match, triumphing by a convincing margin of 79 runs.

The third One-Day witnessed a stellar performance from Ben Stokes, who blazed his way to 182 runs from just 124 deliveries, effectively dismantling the New Zealand bowling attack alongside Dawid Malan, who missed his century and got dismissed on 96. This dominant display resulted in England clinching the game by a staggering 181 runs and establishing a undefeatable lead of 2-1 in the series.

As both teams prepare for the fourth and final encounter, England find themselves in a formidable position, hitting their peak just ahead of the ODI World Cup. They aim to fine-tune their combination further and secure the series. Conversely, New Zealand seek to end the tour on a high note, hoping to level the four-match series by emerging victorious in this crucial encounter.
