England women lost by six wickets as New Zealand levelled their Twenty20 international series in Whangarei.

Rachel Priest (41), Suzie Bates (33) and Sophie Devine (29 not out) helped the hosts to successfully chase down a target of 123 with four balls to spare.

Lauren Winfield’s 48 off 59 balls was England’s best showing with the bat, but with only Heather Knight (30) managing to score more than 20 outside of that England slumped to 122 for five.

It ties the series at 1-1 after England recorded an eight-wicket win at the Cobham Oval on Thursday and nicely sets up next Tuesday’s decider.
