Steve Finn helps England to empahtic ten-wicket victory over New Zealand to win Twenty20 series
Steve Finn was in fine form as England bounced back from their 55-run Hamilton humbling to seal a 2-1 Twenty20 series victory over New Zealand with a ten-wicket demolition in Wellington.
The Watford-born fast bowler may have finished wicketless for the second match in succession but he got plenty out of the pitch, conceding just 18 runs from his four overs to help the tourists restrict the Kiwis to 139 for eight after Stuart Broad’s decision to bowl first paid off, unlike in his side’s previous outing this week.
Finn’s fellow strike bowlers, Broad and Jade Dernbach did most of the damage, picking up three for 15 and three for 36 respectively.
Openers Alex Hales (80 not out) and Michael Lumb (43 not out) then made light work of the chase, racing to the target in just 12.4 overs to put on a record first-wicket stand for England in this format of the game.
