New Zealand Ties T20 Series With England 2-2

New Zealand showed a remarkable comeback from 2-0 down to tie the T20 series against England by winning the fourth and final match by six wickets on Tuesday.

Set a victory target of 176 at Trent Bridge, the New Zealanders had a 32-ball 48 from opener Tim Seifert before Glenn Phillips accelerated the middle part of the chase with 42 off 25 balls.

Mark Chapman (40 not out off 25) saw the tourists over the line with 16 balls left to cap a sharp turnaround in the series that England started so well with heavy wins in Durham and Manchester.

The teams now meet in a four-match one-day international series, starting Friday. This series will be the warm-up for the upcoming Cricket World Cup in India starting in October.
