commentary

Morgan gets the trophy and is joined by his smiling teammates. End of the white-ball leg of the tour and we move onto Test cricket now. Eden Park will host New Zealand's first ever day-night Test come March 22, so join us for that bit of history. Hope you liked the coverage. Until next time, ta-ta!

Morgan - captain, England: "Our bowlers set the tone. Probably a little bit of extra bounce early on, and we took advantage of that. We created opportunities by creating pressure. Spinners took advantage of a little bit of turn here today. Woakes has been outstanding. He can bat as well, believe me. He's led our attack with the ball; just doesn't take the limelight. We did get the hundreds but the process through which we got them (was commendable). Bairstow and Hales batted really well but the game today was won by the bowling unit. We had a good competitive series. Happy with the cricket we played. It's a great country to tour."

Williamson - captain, New Zealand: "We lost the toss and they bowled very well. The ball did stand up a little bit but we had to weather that. Santner and Nicholls batted really well. A disappointing result from our side. It's such a shame. Putting all that aside, England are a very very good One-Day side and deserved to win the series. Too many soft dismissals throughout our innings. the wicket was a good surface and we did need a lot more from the bat. We weren't good today, which is such a tough pill to swallow. They have great depth, have a number of all-rounders and bat a long way down. So they can play the aggressive brand of cricket a lot longer. We know when we do well, we can beat anyone. The game keeps teaching us lessons."

Chris Woakes - Player of the Series: "The ball's coming out alright. Wickets upfront are important, else the guys can take it away. It's nice to pick those wickets and thankfully I've been able to do that. A couple of wickets offered a bit. Pitches have been okay. You've to adapt to the conditions and realize what deliveries are best on that pitch. You've to think on your feet."

Jonny Bairstow - Player of the Match: "Very fortunate to travel to this amazing country. It's a case of giving yourself a bit of extra time at the top. You can be 1 or 2 off 10 balls but you can catch up later. Delighted to get the win. Opening the batting is different to batting in the middle order. My job now is to contribute with big hundreds. It's still work in progress. There was grip for our spinners, so maybe there was some moisture in the wicket early on. Decent toss to win. The catch I took was more luck than judgement. Can't wait for the Tests. First D/N Test as well here, so a new experience for everyone."

A convincing victory for England, one that wasn't in doubt since the start of the match. The seamers set it up beautifully, the spinners made most of the early damage and the hosts were reduced to 223 all-out - in conditions that were good for batting. It wasn't going to be enough for the bowlers to defend, but Jonny Bairstow made a mockery of the chase - belting England's third fastest ODI hundred. Hales, in for Roy, helped himself to a fifty and there were some runs for Root and Stokes as well. Delight for England, despair for the hosts as New Zealand's white-ball summer comes to an end. Stay tuned for the presentations..
