Must be one of the finest one day performances by NZ , ever. 

12 runs to win and they have to take the half time break ha ha.

Cricket Newbie here but.. What does 12 runs to win mean? The BC's can't win if they just score 12 runs surely?
Not sure what the problem with the half time break is?
Very impressed we took them for such a low number of runs, TS has done well. 

We would be best not to brag until we see they don't do the same to us, in case it's the pitch/type of bowling technique or something?

Amazing to watch.. If only England lasted through that last over so Southee could have bowled the best World cup bowling figures.

12 runs left to win would be more technically correct I suppose.

Pretty simple, it's a One Day International, meaning each side only bats once.  England scored 123 runs, we need 124 to win.  So far we have 112, they have gone for supper, 12 runs to get to win the game.

Edit:  'we' meaning the New Zealand cricket team.  I don't actually play for them myself.

England all out for 123, NZ currently 112 with one out. Tea time.
