England storms back for record win

New Zealand and England emerged victorious Friday (18 March) in ICC World Twenty20 play.

New Zealand openers Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson partnered for for 61 runs and Australia’s order failed to reach a modest total of 142 as the Kiwis took an eight-wicket win.

“I think when the ball got a little bit older it got chewed up quickly,” Australian Captain Steve Smith said. “You could see there was quite a lot of spin and that’s always difficult to play.”

The day’s other match ended in historic fashion.

After South Africa set a total of 229 thanks to three half-centuries, England stormed back complete the second-highest successful chase in international T20 history and won by two wickets.

Joe Root led the way with an unbeaten 83.
