GETTYJonny Bairstow has been passed fit for tonight's match
Ben Stokes (39) and Jos Buttler (29) made decent contributions as England finished with a useful total of 234 against New Zealand in the third One-Day International played at the Westpac stadium in Wellington, on Saturday (March 3).
It was Chris Woakes next in the attack, and the pace bowler ran out Martin Santner, who had put New Zealand back on track with 41 from 54 balls.
Chasing 234 to win at Wellington's Cake Tin, New Zealand came up just short, 230 for eight, with captain Kane Williamson unable to nail a six off the final ball of the match.
Mitchell Santner was in a potentially match-winning partnership with Kane Williamson when he was run out after the ball deflected on to the stumps from a dropped caught-and-bowled chance.
Within six overs from England's spin-pair, New Zealand went from 80-1 to 103-6, a defining period of the game which clinched it eventually for the visitors.
New Zealand's skipper hit Chris Woakes' third delivery for a maximum but could not repeat the feat from the final delivery as his side slipped to a narrow defeat.
"They deserved to win, it's just a shame we got so close".
With spinners Ali and Adil Rashid feasting on New Zealand's indecision, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls and Colin de Grandhomme fell for a combined three runs. Normally England's batting collapses whenever the pitch is not a belter but this time, after some poor top-order shot-selection, they got their heads down - especially Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes - to score just enough runs.
Those in the firing line include out-of-sorts Henry Nicholls, newcomer Mark Chapman and allrounder Colin de Grandhomme, who played a terrible shot, holing out to long on.
Hesson said: "We have some very talented players, such as Mark Chapman, but at the moment they aren't Ross Taylor". We were in a position of strength after 15 overs or so in our innings and then we stumbled a bit, lost wickets and couldn't play as positively as we would have liked.
Having brought up his eleventh ODI century off the first ball of the penultimate over with a four off Tom Curran (0-49), the Surrey right-armer showed good composure to respond well and give away only three more singles from his over.
Their problem was no one could settle in long-term and New Zealand part-time medium pacer Colin de Grandhomme was allowed to bowl 10 overs in which he took one for 24. "Brilliant game of cricket", England captain Eoin Morgan said.
But Morgan was certain Santner had been legitimately caught when he clipped a Moeen Ali ball to Roy at midwicket in an incident similar to a denied catch in a Twenty20 match against Australia in Hobart last month. They hit more balls than anyone.
