New Zealand cricket captain Brendon McCullum inspired his team to a crushing 55-run win over England in the second Twenty20 international in Hamilton on Tuesday, levelling the series 1-1.

New Zealand made 192 for six after being sent into bat, and then bowled out the tourists for 137.

McCullum scored 74, including five sixes and six fours, as the Black Caps made the most of the short Seddon Park boundaries to punish the England attack.

England captain Stuart Broad said New Zealand played fantastically and took the game away from the visitors.

The final match of the series will be played in Wellington on Friday.
