and was helped by some awry lines and lengths from the NZ pacers. Off-spinner Glenn Phillips was brought by captain Tom Latham to neutralise Stokes, but he was taken apart by the all-rounder. Phillips came close to dismissing him by trapping the left-hander in front of the wicket, but the umpire remained unmoved. DRS showed that the stumps were clipping on umpire's call and Stokes remained not out after reaching his century.

The left-hander got out in the 45th over trying to scoop out a yorker from Ben Lister. Stokes did not get a hold of it and deposited a high catch to Will Young, standing at deep square leg.

At the time of writing, Stokes's innings had helped England reach 363 runs in 46.4 overs. Barring Stokes, Malan played a fantastic innings and got out 4 runs short of his century.
