Henry Nicholls was the top-scorer with 55 runs to his credit while Chris Woakes and Liam Plunkett picked up three wickets each.
England’s top-order struggled as they were 86/4 but Ben Stokes (84*) and Jos Buttler (59) played vital knocks to see their team through. Lockie Ferguson titled the game in New Zealand's favour as the match was tied in the end.
