5:52 pm on 20 February 2013

The England cricket team's been set a target of 270 for victory after bowling New Zealand out for 269 with seven balls remaining in the second one day international in Napier.

Former Black Caps captain Ross Taylor scored an even century to revive the team's innings and current skipper Brendon McCullum hit a quickfire 74 off just 36 balls.

But the last six wickets fell for just 26 runs after McCullum was caught with James Franklin out for one, Nathan McCullum seven, Tim Southee two, Taylor 100 and Trent Boult one.

English bowler James Anderson took five wickets for 34 runs.

Tight English bowling had the hosts 19 for two after nine overs with opening batsmen BJ Watling and debutant Hamish Rutherford gone for seven and 11 respectively.

But Kane Williamson and Taylor steadied the ship with a 72-run partnership before Williamson chopped one on to be out for 33. Grant Elliott made a contribution of 23, then Taylor and the captain combined for 100 runs for the fifth wicket.

Colin Munro and Andrew Ellis were not included in the XI.

The English side is unchanged.

New Zealand lead the three-match series 1-0.
