     World Cup 2015: Southee, McCullum help Kiwis stifle England

February 20, 2015
0 COMMENTS
Whether it was the lethal bowling of Tim Southee, or the earth-shattering half-century from Brendon McCullum, New Zealand made history at home in the capital Wellington in their 8-wicket shellacking of England at the Cricket World Cup. It was trouble from the start when England were bowled out for 123; Joe Root top-scored with 46. Player of the match Tim Southee took 7/33 from 9 overs, the best figure from a Kiwi bowler in the ODI format, and the third-best in any World Cup. New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum made the fastest half-century of his career with 77 off 25 balls, including 8 fours and 7 sixes. This added greatly to the Kiwis' easy response of 125/2 from 12.2 overs. Bowling for England, Chris Woakes picked up 2/8 from 3 overs. Meanwhile, the West Indies are going to try, try again in their match at Christchurch, where they meet Pakistan. (Image source: ESPN Cricinfo)
