Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan Get Out in Successive Balls
First Jason Roy missed a straight delivery and got bowled for 78 and then Sodhi trapped Morgan LBW first ball.

Well, well, has Ish Sodhi got New Zealand back into the game? Jason Roy has put England in the driver’s seat but if the Black Caps get a couple of more wickets, then it will get very interesting.

England: 110/3 after 12.2 overs.

Santner Gets the Breakthrough!
Alex Hales finally decided to free his arms and gave a simple catch to Colin Munro. Hales goes for 20.

New Zealand have got a breakthrough but it might be a little to late. Jason Roy has gone berserk and doesn’t look like getting out anytime soon.

England: 82/0 after 8.3 overs.
