England Defeats New Zealand to Win One-Day Cricket Series 2-1

Feb. 23 (Bloomberg) -- England defeated New Zealand by five wickets in Auckland to win their one-day international cricket series 2-1.

England bowled New Zealand out for 185 after winning the toss and electing to field at Eden Park. The visitors then needed 37.3 overs of 50 overs to reach their target.

Steven Finn took 3-27 as New Zealand was dismissed, with Brendon McCullum top-scoring for the host with 79. Captain Alastair Cook (46), Eoin Morgan (39), Jonathan Trott (38) and Joe Root (28 not out) then led the England response.

The teams open a three-match Test series March 6 in Dunedin. England also won the earlier Twenty20 series 2-1.
