The New Zealand cricket captain Brendon McCullum concedes England simply blew them off the park in the opening day international in Birmingham.
Smarting after their dismal performance at the recent World Cup England amassed 408 for nine batting first against the Black Caps then dismissed the tourists for just 198.
Jos Buttler and Joe Root both scored centuries while Adil Rashid, made 68 then took four wickets.
It's England biggest one day international total and also their biggest winning margin by runs.
"To post 400 in any game is outstanding but first game of the series, credit to England, they blew us off the park," McCullum told Sky Sport.
He conceded he made a mistake in putting England into bat first after winning the toss.
"Sometimes you've got to admits you got it wrong at the toss and the way the ball started holding up in the second innings probably suggested we did get it wrong...no degrees for reading pitches but you've got to admit when you didn't get it right."
"So it was unfortunate but I still don't think you should take away how outstanding they were with both and the bat and the ball... it was a complete performance and we've got some work to do."
The England cricket captain Eoin Morgan admits he was as surprised as anyone by his side's record win.
"The challenge from now on is to be able to keep that consistency. New Zealand in the couple of years lead up to the World Cup showed that it is possible to be consistent and perform at the at level but the challenge for us over the next period of time is to be able to do that." he said.
