When England beat Australia at Perth at the end of last month to clinch a 4-1 one-day international series success, everything looked rosey in their white ball garden.

Since then, things have hit the buffers somewhat.

After losing three of four Twenty20 clashes against the Australians and New Zealand, thus failing to qualify for the tri-series final, they were beaten in the opening ODI of five against the Kiwis at Hamilton today.

And it was some comeback by the hosts, inspired by Ross Taylor.

Chasing 285, the Kiwis recovered from 27-3 to win by three wickets with four balls to spare.

Taylor scored a magnificent 113 off 116 balls and was ably supported by fourth-wicket partner Tom Latham with 79. They shared a game changing partnership of 178.
