Southampton - New Zealand beat England by three wickets to win the third one-day international at Southampton on Sunday and so take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.

Kane Williamson (118) and Ross Taylor (110) shared a record New Zealand third-wicket ODI stand of 206 after the Black Caps had been 36 for two, chasing 303 for victory.

England, who had threatened a huge score, were bowled out for 302 with 28 balls of their innings left despite fifties from skipper Eoin Morgan (71), Ben Stokes (68) and Joe Root (54).

Tim Southee (three for 44) and debutant left-arm paceman Ben Wheeler (three for 63) did the bulk of the damage.
