England showed promise of entering the more flamboyant era of one day cricket as they hammered a thumping 408 against New Zealand.

Led by Skipper Eoin Morgan’s the side managed to score their first four hundred in one day cricket with Jos Buttler playing a cracking innings of 129 off 66 balls. Teammates Joe Root chipped in with a 104 in 78 balls. The skipper himself contributed with a half century and Adil Rashid stood along side Buttler scoring 87 off 50. Trent Boult picked up four wickets and and gave away only 55 runs at the end of his spell but the other Blackcap bowlers struggled against the English batting onslaught.

New Zealand faltered with notable performances from Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson who played 45 and 57 respectively but were bowled out for 198 with Liam Plunkett and Rashid, picking up four wickets a piece.
