This is a third straight loss in the series for the visiting England side including their two previous defeats to Australia.
Captain Kane Williamson led from the front with an innings of 72 off 46 balls against England. 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.
'You'd like to think a fielder's word would be taken but that's what the soft signal is for, ' he said.
'We had a fantastic start, Hales can rival anyone in the world when he's in that kind of form, ' Buttler, who made just two from four balls, said.
Engler: ESPN's MSU report 'a sensationalized package'
He also noted that Dantonio and Izzo have been asked to "refrain from comment" while the school is in the reviewing process. Asked respond to Engler's comments, ESPN said - in an email sent to 97.1 The Ticket - "We stand by our reporting".
Williamson's first job was to back up Guptill, who launched Adil Rashid for three slog-swept sixes en route to 65 from 40 balls. When Seifert hit England's best bowler Jordan twice over the rope in the final over New Zealand had a total way higher than they would have expected and a daunting target. The weather is likely to be fine and we should see a full game. England, though, were ahead of New Zealand on the comparison thanks to Hales finding his range with three sixes, only for him to then pick out deep midwicket against a Sodhi long-hop.
Earlier, Williamson discovered how much can hinge on one ball.
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.
Malan had been 23 off 23 balls when Santner couldn't haul in what would have been a spectacular grab at long-off and proceeded to speed to his fifty from just another 13 deliveries making it three in four innings at the start of his T20I career.
