Eoin Morgan and Dawid Malan pummelled the New Zealand attack in a record-breaking 182-run stand as England posted an imposing 241 for three batting first in the fourth Twenty20 global in Napier on Friday.
The tourists made 241-3 - their highest T20 score - with Dawid Malan making an unbeaten 103 from 51 balls, the fastest century by an England batsman in the shortest format.
Malan said Morgan launched the England attack "and I sort of jumped in his slipstream".
New Zealand were left with it all to do in their fourth T20 worldwide against England after Eoin Morgan's men smashed an incredible 241 for three wickets in the first innings.

76 - Runs by England in the last four overs of their innings - the most by any team in a T20I. In reply, New Zealand made 165 runs, losing all wickets in 16.5 overs.
"The message is always the same, play aggressively and back yourself", said Malan, who hit nine fours and six maximums.
Their assault neutralised a shaky start with Jonny Bairstow (8) falling in the fourth over.
2 - Malan became the second England batsman to score a century in T20Is.

Mitchell was sacrificed to the batting gods in the penultimate over and watched on as another 25 runs were tacked on to the scoreboard, before Morgan finally holed out with two balls remaining - Mitchell this time clinging onto the catch that he couldn't 80 runs earlier, as the skipper departed for 91 from 41 balls.
Captain Tim Southee, who chose to bowl first, was their top-scorer with 39 off 15 including two fours and four sixes. Malan completed his ton off 48 balls while Hales had taken 60 balls. Mitchell Santner took both the wickets. He played just 17 balls to reach the hundred from fifty. Colin de Grandhomme (7), Ross Taylor (14), Santner (10) all got out without scoring any significant run.
However, he was trapped lbw - leggie Matt Parkinson ending with four wickets - and come the end, the only standing required by the Napier faithful was to leave their seats and make a beeline for the exit.
England trail 2-1 and need a win to keep the five-match series alive.
