5th ODI match - Summary

New Zealand v England: Trevor Bayliss expects Ross Taylor to play in ODI series finale

Bairstow's century help visitors to wrap the ODI Series 3-2.

The 34-year-old produced a match-winning unbeaten 181 in the fourth one-day global on Wednesday, despite having aggravated a thigh injury and suffering cramps that restricted his movement and forced him to limp singles in the successful run chase. ENGLAND J. Bairstow hit wicket b T. Boult 104 A. Hales c K. Williamson b M. Santner 61 Joe Root (not out) 23 E. Morgan c C.de Grandhomme b I. Sodhi 8 B. Stokes (not out) 26 Extras (lb-4, w-3) 7 Total (3 wkts, 32.4 overs) 229 Fall of wickets: 1-155, 2-177, 3-192.

The platform for the triumph was laid early when England's bowlers constricted New Zealand's top order.

"We were disappointed with how we did in the last game when we could have potentially won the series - because we got ourselves into a position [to do that]". It was no different in Christchurch as he struck with his third ball, enticing Colin Munro into top-edging a drive to wicket-keeper Jos Buttler.

New Zealand's test squad will be predictable with wicketkeeper BJ Watling likely to be the only major change from the side that beat the West Indies 2-0 in early December. "England were outstanding and they deserved to win the series".

Once New Zealand slumped to 93-6, only one result appeared possible.

"If you only have five options that means you've got to drop another bowler and in the one-day game, almost every game, there is always someone for who it doesn't go as well as they'd like so it is always good to have that sixth option".

Meanwhile, BJ Watling is making a steady return into test contention, having not played for New Zealand this summer. Adil Rashid, 10. Tom Curran, 11.

Santner - who reached fifty from 60 balls after being dropped by Ali on 58 - was caught smartly by Hales at deep midwicket but Bairstow outdid his opening partner from the next legal ball Woakes bowled, running round the boundary to take a superb one-handed grab to remove Southee.

Coming to this series, Latham scored 84 balls 79 in partnership with Ross Taylor in the first match at Hamilton chasing 270 odd and once again rescued his team in Dunedin after being 86-3 chasing 335, he combined with centurion of the match Taylor to stitch 187 runs partnership thereby calming nerves in the dressing room.

"The disappointing thing was too many soft dismissals through that middle-order", said Williamson.

Some of his hitting straight and over mid-wicket was as clean as anybody could wish to see.

England's domination began at the start of the day when Morgan won the toss and elected to bowl. His experience, ability to bat long periods on hard surfaces and reputation for digging New Zealand out of trouble with the bat, should see him preferred over Blundell against a quality English attack.

Not for the first time, it was the bowlers who put England in contention, restricting New Zealand to 223 all out.

Speaking after play at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch Morgan said: "Our bowlers really set the tone".
