An aggressive Colin Munro belted New Zealand into the Twenty20 tri-series final against Australia despite England claiming their final round-robin match by two runs in Hamilton on Sunday. (NZ v ENG HIGHLIGHTS)Munro plundered the England attack at the top of the New Zealand innings, equalling the sixth-fastest half-century of all time in cricket’s shortest form as he raced past 50 in just 18 deliveries. England, on the back of an unbeaten 80 by returning captain Eoin Morgan, posted 194 for seven after being sent into bat. New Zealand, with Martin Guptill adding 62 and Hong Kong-born Mark Chapman unbeaten on 37, made 192 for four in reply. After New Zealand’s rollicking start, England spinners Adil Rashid and Liam Dawson quietened the pace through the middle of the innings.
