England back on terms after Malan century
Dawid Malan made history for England in Napier as they beat New Zealand to level to five-match T20 series.
Malan earned his place in the record books by hitting the fastest T20 century for an England batsman as the tourists coasted to a 76 run victory.
He ended the game with an unbeaten 103 from 51 deliveries while captain Eoin Morgan made 91 from just 41 balls to guide England to their highest-ever T20 total of 241-3.
Matt Parkinson played a big role with the ball, taking 4-47, to dismiss New Zealand for 165 and ensure the series will go down to the final match in Auckland on Sunday.
England batsman Dawid Malan, speaking to Sky Sports: "It's not often in your career everything comes off, it was a lot of fun out there.
"I felt rusty in the first game of the series but it's felt smoother and smoother. I said this morning that I felt I had got rid of the rust and thankfully it clicked here.
"Morgs came out and changed the momentum of the game and I piggy-backed that."
