Taylor ton steers Kiwis home over England

Stokes contributed 12 runs from 22 balls to England's total of 284-5 as it batted first after winning the toss.

Along with Stokes, Joe Root, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes and Jonny Bairstow are also back in the England squad after missing the recent tri-nation T20 series in which Australia beat New Zealand in the final.

The big-hitting allrounder was cleared to return only after pleading not guilty to a charge of affray at Bristol Magistrates Court this month.

Spinners Mitchell Santner (2/54), Ish Sodhi (2/63) and pacer Trent Boult (2/64) were the pick of the bowlers for the Black Caps.

Joe Root made 71 and Jos Butter's brilliant 79 from only 65 balls got England up to 284-8 in Hamilton, Stokes falling for only 12 in his first global appearance since being arrested following an incident in Bristol last September.

Mitchell Santner followed up his 2 for 54 with a crucial 27-ball 45 to take New Zealand across the line in the final over.

Taylor (113) remained but when he was stumped off Adil Rashid (1-55), England looked to be favourites again, only for back-to-back sixes from Santner to swing the pendulum back New Zealand's way.

The Black Caps were in all sorts of trouble at 27-3 after Stokes took a sharp catch offered by Martin Guptill to give Woakes a second wicket, but the composed Taylor and Latham got them out of the mire.

"I think it's the skill of any professional sportsman. when it comes down to doing your job". "It was good, competitive game and I think we posted a really competitive score".

When Stokes sets foot on the pitch in Hamilton, it will be five months nearly to the minute since the altercation outside a nightclub which resulted in his unavailability throughout this winter's Ashes.

Stokes got better returns in the second innings as he picked up the wickets of Latham and Colin de Grandhomme.

"It ebbed and flowed for quite a while and when we broke the partnership we knew we were back in the game".

"It was a hell of a game", he said.

The return of Ben Stokes will help the visitors immensely with the bat and ball in hand, given he's fit.

Stokes, who had not played for England since an incident outside a Bristol nightclub last September, had Latham caught for 79 then had the unsafe Colin de Grandhomme caught behind for two in his next over. Australia was a tough series and New Zealand are going to be no different.

The only competitive cricket he has played since the Bristol incident, which occurred on the night after a one-day worldwide against the West Indies, was a short stint for Canterbury province in New Zealand's domestic limited overs competitions.

Munro chipped in with an effective six-over cameo, conceding only 31 runs and removing Root for 71. Stokes tried to hit it with a slog sweep as the ball jumped up and got a leading edge.
