England post their highest T20 total

England have posted their highest Twenty20 international total with Dawid Malan and Eoin Morgan setting a host of records by laying waste to New Zealand's bowlers in Napier.

In a devastating display of hitting from the former Middlesex team-mates, Morgan set a new benchmark for the fastest T20 half-century by an England batsman.

Malan then took over to become only the second England batsman to reach three figures in the format.


Morgan would fall short of his own century when he holed out for 91 from 41 balls in the final over but Malan was unbeaten on 103 from 51 deliveries, the bedrock of England's 3-241.

The score bested their previous high of 8-230 against South Africa in the 2016 World Twenty20.
