|Scorecard:||England v New Zealand|
|Event:||Commonwealth Bank Series 2006/07|
DateLine: 25th January 2007
England's lowest one-day score for two-and-a-half years sent them crashing to the bottom of the Commonwealth Bank Series table but Andrew Flintoff has urged the batsmen to be brave in the aftermath. New Zealand dismantled England for a sorry 120 at the Adelaide Oval, the venue of Friday's next contest against hosts Australia. More than a dozen overs were left unused as a lack of confidence in mind and method prevailed throughout the team. Yet after the 90-run defeat, stand-in captain Flintoff, reviewing a seventh reverse in as many attempts as leader on this tour, said: "I would not say there was a sense of dread. When you are chasing and you lose quick wickets, it is going to make it harder."
