At the end of the third one-day international match, which took place on Wednesday at The Oval, England defeated New Zealand by a score of 181 runs to take a 2-1 lead in the four-game series.
Ben Stokes’ searing 182 was the greatest score by an England batsman in an ODI, and it was the centerpiece of a total of 368 all out during an innings in which Dawid Malan got 96. In addition, Stokes’ score was the highest score by an England batsman in an ODI.
Trent Boult’s performance, which included five wickets for 51 runs, enabled New Zealand to stay in the game even after England was bowled out with 11 balls to spare.
In response, Chris Woakes (3-31) caused the majority of the damage for New Zealand, which led to their score being reduced to 37-4.
Rachin Ravindra’s score of 28 was lower than the total of 187 that New Zealand was dismissed for. Only Glenn Phillips’ score of 72 was higher.
On Friday, the series will come to an end at Lord’s.
