England 335 for nine in fourth New Zealand ODI

Coach Mike Hesson expects key batsman Ross Taylor to return from a thigh injury for Wednesday's fourth ODI against

He had a life on 74 when Mitchell Santner dropped a regulation catch at cover and went on to score his third ODI century with a four swept to the boundary.

You probably can't blame them, either.

The tourists' total should have been even bigger, but a dramatic late collapse put the brakes on their scoring as spinner Ish Sodhi led a stirring New Zealand fightback.

New Zealand won the first match at Seddon Park in Hamilton by three wickets.

England leads the five-match series 2-1 with the final game scheduled for Friday in Christchurch ahead of a two-test series later in March.

Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root made centuries and shared a 190-run second-wicket partnership to lift England to 335-9 as it batted first after losing the toss Wednesday in the fourth one-day global against New Zealand.

"I've had massages on it, acupuncture, stretching and swimming. I just had a dead leg".

Bairstow made 138 from 106 balls with 14 fours and seven sixes and Root a more studied 102 from 110 in a record partnership for the second wicket for England against New Zealand. It's been an interesting week after the win in Hamilton, and then to have the niggle during the game.

Liverpool's Klopp Admits Mistake In Rushing Lallana Early After Injury
Both sides have participated in many high-scoring games this year, and we think over 2.5 goals is a certainty in this game. However, that was one of few moments that got the home fans off their feet as Liverpool settled on their substantial lead.

"Anytime you miss out playing for your country, it's disappointing".

Lose tomorrow and the series is gone for the home side.

Chapman or Nicholls will presumably rest with Taylor's return from injury.

All-rounder Todd Astle, and seamers Matt Henry and Lockie Ferguson have remained with the team, who were unable to get a proper look at what's sure to be a seamer-friendly University Oval wicket because it remained covered on Tuesday.

"I should be fine", he said after an indoor training session at the Edgar Centre.

"We need to get off to a good start and set the platform". We know we're a good side when we have wickets in hand and can utilise the death overs to our advantage.

"It's no use going out there helter-skelter, then falling for spit and playing catch up the whole time", Taylor said.
