Matt Parkinson continued to impress in England colours as he took four wickets in the win over New Zealand in the fourth Twenty20 international.

The Bolton leg-spinner took 4-47 as the hosts were bowled out for 165, the tourists running out 76-run winners to level the series 2-2 in Napier.

Dawid Malan had became only the second England batsman to record a T20 international hundred, bludgeoning 103 not out from 51 balls, as his 182-run partnership with captain Eoin Morgan formed the bedrock of England’s highest-ever total of 241-3.

The skipper made 91 from 41 deliveries before falling in the final over of the innings.

Malan’s century was the fastest in T20s by an Englishman, beating Alex Hales’ effort against Sri Lanka in Chittagong in 2014 by 12 deliveries.

With New Zealand forced to go for broke from the off, some crowd-pleasing sixes aside, they were unable to fashion a dramatic chase.

Having taken 1-14 on debut last time out, Lancashire's Parkinson here picked up the wickets of Colin Munro, Colin de Grandhomme, Daryl Mitchell and Tim Southee as the innings was wrapped up in 16.5 overs.

The series decider takes place in Auckland on Sunday.
