Hamilton - England won the toss and put New Zealand in to bat in the second Twenty20 international in Hamilton on Tuesday.

The England line-up was unchanged from the first T20 in Auckland last Saturday, which the tourists won by 40 runs after posting 214, their highest ever score in the ultra-short form of the game.

New Zealand made two changes, with all-rounder Grant Elliott and paceman Ian Butler coming into the team.

England have won six of their seven T20s against New Zealand.

Teams:

New Zealand:

Hamish Rutherford, Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum (captain), Ross Taylor, Colin Munro, James Franklin, Nathan McCullum, Grant Elliott, Ian Butler, Trent Boult, Mitchell McClenaghan

England:

Alex Hales, Michael Lumb, Luke Wright, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Samit Patel, James Tredwell, Stuart Broad (captain), Steven Finn, Jade Dernbach

Umpires: Gary Baxter (NZL), Derek Walker (NZL)
