Williamson, Morgan hit by fitness concerns

The runs have dried up for Kane Williamson in Twenty20 international cricket having scored 101 at an average of 14

The visitors lost Jason Roy (8) early in the run-chase but Alex Hales (47) and Dawid Malan (59) added 65 for the second wicket. But Dawid Malan continued the struggle and kept England's hopes of winning the game alive.

New Zealand set a mammoth score of 196 thanks to brilliant innings from Kane Williamson and Martin Guptill. Williamson was then bowled by Jordan for 72. Seifert's 2 sixes in the final over pushed New Zealand's score to a competitive one.

The remainder of the T20 squad will head to New Zealand on Tuesday with Warner to join them ahead of Friday's clash against the Kiwis in Auckland. They face New Zealand in Hamilton on Sunday, two days after the Black Caps tackle Australia, who have already qualified for the final.

"England played Liam Plunkett and Mark Wood and said, "we're going to hit you with pace", he said.

New Zealand are also without a win in the tournament after their opening defeat against Australia in Sydney. Instead, after misjudging a quick single, pushing the ball towards mid on, he saw fast bowler Mark Wood's hurl at the stumps at the non-strikers end fly narrowly past with Williamson still a couple of metres short of his crease. But chasing 197 does not leave much room for error and the back-to-back losses of James Vince, run out by Williamson from mid-off, and Jos Buttler, unable to defeat the stiff Wellington breeze to clear long-off, left it on Malan's shoulders.

Vince was run out by Williamson, Buttler was caught by Tim Southee off Sodhi and Billings top-edged a shot off Mitchell Santner before being caught by Sodhi as the trio failed to fire.

Heavy snow to blanket upper Midwest
Gino Izzi, meteorologist with the National Weather Service forecast office in Romeoville, said it will be a standard winter storm. That will be followed by another storm tomorrow afternoon through evening, and then a third going into Saturday morning.

Earlier, Williamson discovered how much can hinge on one ball.

Kane Williamson, New Zealand's captain, has responded to criticism from Simon Doull about the team's T20 fortunes and reiterated that he wants to be involved in all formats for his country. England bowled a lot of length balls, they were not the thing to bowl on there, it was a good pitch. Chapman scored 20, while wicketkeeper Seifert hit two sixes in his six-ball innings of 14 to take the hosts to the equal highest Twenty20 worldwide score on the ground.

Unhelpful - for ground staff - weather conditions in Wellington recently, hot and humid, ate away at a large, rectangular shape of the pitch, giving it a bald, weird appearance. "We just look to play the ball, not the bowler", he said.
