Bairstow century seals ODI series

Blackcaps batsman Colin Munro

Chris Woakes took 3-23, Adil Rashid 3-42 and Tom Curran 2-46 as England, after winning the toss, bowled out New Zealand in 49.5 overs.

It was the fastest century by a England opener in one-day cricket and the third fastest by any England player.

Woakes has set the tone for England throughout the series, taking a wicket in his first two overs in every game.

They slumped to 93 for six in the 27th over and only had the innings rescued by an 84-run partnership between Mitchell Santner (67) and Henry Nicholls (55).

A rather freakish series for Colin Munro summed up in his final outing as he bagged yet another duck as Woakes snaffled him in the very first over.

Rohan Mustafa and Mohammad Naveed were special for the United Arab Emirates in the first game with 95 runs and a five-wicket haul as they completed a 56-run victory in their opening game against Papua New Guinea. Nicholls hit Root's off-spin for six but he top-edged Tom Curran to short leg at an inopportune moment.

Santner had two sixes and four fours in his 67 off 71 balls before he was caught in the deep by Alex Hales off Woakes in the penultimate over.

Marches in Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Valencia and a number of other cities were leading events in 200 Spanish locations. What has the social media response been? "Unite against violence against women", one placard urged.

New Zealand finished with a 10 win-three loss ODI record for the home summer after winning eight straight matches against the woeful West Indies and Champions Trophy champions, Pakistan, who were well below their best. But Bairstow's dismissal by part-time medium-pacer Colin Munro, from whom he had just previously hit a six over the gabled grandstand at the University Oval, precipitated a collapse which saw England lose 6-19 in 6.1 overs.

"It was a really disappointing performance from our part", New Zealand captain Kane Williamson said.

Three years on from being finalists in the 2015 World Cup, where they lost to Australia in Melbourne, New Zealand are now struggling to get an innings underway as they build towards the next showpiece in May 2019.

They came for a classic but Jonny Bairstow gave them a blowout. "It was a brilliant innings by Jonny - hitting the ball cleanly like he has all series". He cut, he swept, he drove. Had England batted first, or if they had been forced to chase 300, then there would have been a clearer indication of whether they are becoming mentally strong enough to win a global tournament, in comparison to all previous England one-day sides that have buckled.

"We spoke many times about how it was 2-2, and this was a huge game", he said.

Mark Chapman, back in place of injured lynchpin Ross Taylor, failed to score before trying to dab rather than defend a length ball from Moeen Ali - and paid with the loss of his off-bail.

England skipper Eoin Morgan (8) lasted only seven balls, before Ish Sodhi tempted him into a pull shot which a sprinting Colin de Grandhomme caught on the boundary to leave England 3-192 in the 27th over.
