Malan ton seals England series win over New Zealand

England 311 for 9 (Malan 127, Ravindra 4-60) beat New Zealand 211 (Ravindra 61, Nicholls 41, Moeen 4-50) by 100 runs

London: Dawid Malan's sublime century inspired England to a series-clinching hammering of New Zealand in the fourth and final one-day international at Lord's.

Malan, in prolific form before the World Cup starting in India next month, stroked 127 from 114 balls.

That led England to 311-9, a total the bedraggled Black Caps never threatened.

Off-spinner Moeen Ali claimed 4-50 as New Zealand were bowled out for 211 to give England victory by 100 runs.

England take the series 3-1 in what is their last meaningful action before their defence of the World Cup.

Next week, an almost entirely different England squad meet Ireland in a three-match one-day series, beginning at Headingley on Wednesday.

Despite a showpiece event now being so close, the intensity of this game was far below the last time these two sides met in a one-dayer on this ground - the heart-stopping 2019 World Cup final - or what it will likely be when they next face each other in the tournament opener in Ahmedabad on 5 October.
