Cricket: Black Caps lose to England in first T20

From Checkpoint, 5:22 pm on 1 November 2019

Now to Hagley Oval in Christchurch, where the Black Caps have just walked off the field after losing to England.

It's the first of five T20 matches against England, and the first game since the infamous Cricket World Cup final in July.

Ross Taylor top-scored on 44 in New Zealand's total of 153/5. England chased that down with 9 balls to spare, thanks largely to James Vince's 59 off 38 balls.
