Alex Hales (47) got England off to a quick start but they lost James Vince, Jos Buttler and Sam Billings cheaply.

England won the toss and elected to bowl Tuesday in the Trans-Tasman Tri-Series Twenty20 cricket worldwide against New Zealand at the Wellington Regional Stadium.

With three games left in the tri-series, co-hosts Australia are already into the final having beaten England twice and New Zealand once.

Mark Wood will curse the errant throw which spared Black Caps skipper Kane Williamson on nought - he went on to make a match-high 72 and saved much of the punishment for Wood - but the tourists were outmatched. England's match in Hamilton against New Zealand on Sunday would then be embarrassingly meaningless.

Blazing half-centuries from Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson have guided New Zealand to a 12 run win over England in their Twenty20 cricket global in Wellington.

The remainder of the T20 squad will head to New Zealand on Tuesday with Warner to join them for Friday's clash against the Kiwis in Auckland. He hit 3 sixes and 6 fours in his 65-run innings which came in 40 balls.

Colin Munro tried and failed to follow suit, flapping Wood to fine leg, bringing Williamson to the crease.

Debutants Mark Chapman and Tim Seifert were picked to add batting punch and they did late with two sixes apiece, after Williamson and Martin Guptill (65 off 40) rolled them out a red carpet.

Adil Rashid kept out the hat-trick delivery on the first ball of the final over but there was too much for the legspinner and Chris Wood to do and they finished on 184 for nine. Mark Chapman and wicketkeeper Tim Seifert are set to debut at the Westpac Stadium, with Tom Bruce and Tom Blundell making way, and Williamson said it was just reward for their form domestically.

Boult's first ball, to Jason Roy, was the first to misbehave as the England opener raised the periscope to a short one that startled him.

'We had a fantastic start, Hales can rival anyone in the world when he's in that kind of form, ' Buttler, who made just two from four balls, said.

"He's looking a lot at volume of cricket, bringing new players in in terms of growth into the global game".

"It was nice to spend some time in the middle today to help our side get a good total".

"I thought the ball was going to roll a bit further.then it didn't", he said of his misjudged single.
