England vs New Zealand 2nd ODI Live Cricket Score, Eng vs NZ Live
New Zealand's win in Hamilton came at a price: Mitchell McClenaghan has been ruled out of the series, while Martin Guptill will be out of this match at the very least after pulling his hamstring in a star showing in the first ODI. Tim Southee is set to return to the side as a result, while Hamish Rutherford - who made his international debut against England in the T20 series - will replace Guptill.
England are set to stick with the same line-up that played at Seddon Park. Ashley Giles is unlikely to make any changes, but if he wishes to give Steven Finn a rest, 22-year-old Glamorgan seamer James Harris could come in. With the series on the line after defeat in the first match, however, it is surely unlikely that England will look to tinker.
Brendon McCullum: "It was fantastic to see our batsmen coming out and striking the ball like that. I thought we showed some fighting characteristics. It's a really important trait for us that we do keep scrapping like that."
Alastair Cook: "You always are a little bit rusty when you haven't had a practice match or a training session as a side. But it was more match hardness which we were missing a little bit. We got ourselves in position to win, batted well up front, and I think both sides would have felt disappointed losing that game."
Put simply, McLean Park is a place batsmen enjoy visiting. In their last ODI at the ground back in 2008 - under the leadership of Peter Moores - England scored 340 batting first in a dramatic tied match. The weather is likely to be warm and sunny, with one of the best pitches to bat on in the country.
