Eoin Morgan has shrugged off a back complaint

Morgan hurt his back in the tourists' opening victory in Auckland on Saturday, and sat out practice on Monday. But the middle-order batsman recovered sufficiently to take his place here as England target a series-clinching victory.

Stuart Broad won the toss and chose to bowl first on a sunny evening. For New Zealand, pace bowler Ian Butler and all-rounder Grant Elliott were fit again and came in for Andrew Ellis and spinner Ronnie Hira.
