  1. Goodbye!

    And with that, we're going to bid you goodbye.

    Callum Matthews' report is over here and the TMS podcast will be available for your entertainment shortly.

    We'll be back on Friday for the fourth T20, which gets going at 05:00 GMT.

    In a bit.

    England leg-spinner Matt Parkinson, speaking to Sky Sports: "I would have liked to have get a win but I'm pleased with the wicket. I wasn't nervous, I don't think - I was more nervous this morning and throughout the day. I wanted to fast forward from the moment I woke up to the ball in hand."

  3. 'It's nice to win games like that'

    New Zealand captain Tim Southee: "We knew as a group it would get tough if we got the tailenders in and they had to hit out from the start.

    "As long as Morgan was in they had a sniff, especially with James Vince in and playing well but we knew if we kept taking wickets it would get tough.

    "There's still areas we need to improve on but it's nice to win games like that, that can go either way at the half-way point and during the second innings."

    This will be a hard lesson for these guys. They will be thinking they are well ahead of this game. They need to make sure they bring it home.

  5. 'One that got away'

    England captain Eoin Morgan, speaking at the presentation: "I think that's one that got away from us. I thought we were in control in the whole chase before we went three or four down.

    "The lack of experience may have cost us. It's great how competitive the series is so far and integrating everyone into the squad, but we feel that's one that got away.

    "The game plan remains the same - everything we do is about positive, smart, aggressive cricket. There are a lot of positives to take away but it's a must-win game in Napier."

    England will say, we were well set up to win that game and we shouldn't slip away like that.

  7. Player of the match - Colin de Grandhomme

    New Zealand's Colin de Grandhomme at the presentation: "I hit it pretty well in Sri Lanka and it seems to have carried on at home now. I think the earlier you get in, with the field up, it gives you more access to the boundaries."

    He's got very impressive domestic stats and he looked comfortable out there today. It was a solid start.

    England were good with the ball - Matt Parkinson should definitely have bowled another over, while Tom Curran just gets better and better with 2-29.

  10. 'It was a capitulation from England'

    England's outfielding was good, the bowling performance was good. Up until the point where they lost those wickets, they were in control. But it was a bit of a capitulation at the end.

  11. Post update

    New Zealand were really sharp in the field after England got off to a fast start.

    Colin Munro's run out of Sam Billings from point was a superb bit of work.

    All of New Zealand's bowlers contributed; both Blair Tickner and Lockie Ferguson finish with 2-25, while Tim Southee went for 28 runs from his four overs, with nine dot balls.

    England would have felt in control with 50 needed off six overs. All of a sudden, losing those wickets quickly...

    The run-out of Sam Billings was crucial. Then losing James Vince in the next over, and the heart has been ripped out of it.

  14. Post update

    England were 139-2, and then lost five wickets in 18 balls for 10 runs.

    Basically, they did what they do in Test cricket - collapse.

    As good a last over as you could wish to see from Tim Southee.

    Tom Curran heaves a couple of runs away off the last ball, but that collapse has cost England.

    The Black Caps take a 2-1 lead with two matches left in the series.
