Morgam, Malan floor New Zealand with record breaking partnership

Shane Bond interested in becoming England’s fast-bowling coach

The pair posted the highest third-wicket partnership by any side in a T20 worldwide and the 241 is England´s highest total.

The result leaves the series poised at 2-2 with only one game, in Auckland on Sunday, to come.

It was one of many records to tumble - the partnership was the England's highest in Twenty20s, and the largest third-wicket stand in Twenty20 worldwide history - while 153 runs were belted from the last 10 overs, and 76 from the last four.

The left-hander achieved his century off just 48 balls, the swiftest ton by an England batsman in T20 internationals. The left-hander now has a century and five half centuries from nine global innings and an average of 57.25. And, having reached his half-century from 31 balls, he accelerated sharply to record his century just 17 deliveries later.

Meanwhile, 32-year-old Malan scored the fastest T20I hundred for England.


Malan became just the second Englishman to make a century in the format, but was considerably more rapidly than Alex Hales' 60-ball work from Sri Lanka in 2014. It is the highest by a non-opening pair and highest for any wicket for England. This is also the second-highest total by any team against New Zealand, behind Australia's 245 for 5 in Auckland past year. He had struck 28 - comprised of four sixes and a four - in his previous six deliveries and, with three balls of the innings remaining, required nine more for the milestone.

Morgan, at the other end, put up a six-hitting display of his own, clobbering seven of them as he threatened to eclipse Malan's hundred.

Mitchell, a late replacement in the New Zealand side for the unwell Jimmy Neesham, was punished for the error by conceding 25 from his only over of the innings, the 19th, with Morgan taking him for three sixes. He bettered Jos Buttler's 22-ball effort against Australia at Edgbaston a year ago.

21 - Balls taken by Morgan to complete his fifty, the fastest by an England batsman in the format.
