Feb. 12 (Bloomberg) -- New Zealand defeated England by 55 runs in Hamilton to even their three-match Twenty20 cricket series.

England won the toss and put the hosts in to bat. New Zealand sprinted out to 192-6 in its 20 overs, and then restricted England to 137 all out in 19.3 overs. The visitors started 9-2 with Alex Hales out for 5 and Luke Wright caught without scoring.

New Zealand was led by Brendon McCullum’s 74. James Franklin took 4-15 and Ian Butler took 2-9.

“We’re happy to bounce back from the other day,” McCullum said in a televised interview. “We know England has room to improve after the opening performance so we have to get better.”

England won the opening match in the series last weekend by 40 runs in Auckland. The pair play in three days in Wellington for the last match.

The teams then meet for three one-day internationals and three Tests in New Zealand.
