McCullum: 'It was an incredible performance. We wanted to bat first as well, the pitch was very good, but the ability of our bowlers to swing the ball, they were outstanding. When Southee and Boult bowl like this, it's pretty difficult for the batsmen. World class performace. The crowd was amazing. It is amazing to have this bowling attack and we have guys on the sidelines who have done well for us. A great performance today. We've had a great first week in the tournament. Now we have a bit of a break. Our fielding performance was very good, it was as good as it has been in a pretty long time. I am sure England will bounce back, but good to get the points against a strong England side. Credit to all the bowlers and the fielders. Maybe have a quiet beer in the change room. It's nice to get a 100 partnership with Guptill. Thanks to the crowd for supporting us.
Morgan: 'To be fair, New Zealand bowled really well. Credit goes to them. It was swinging throughout the innings and we expected it to be a batting-friendly track. Our first two games were the most difficult in the group stage and hopefully we can win the next game and build momentum from there on. I feel a lot better after today, struggled in the last few innings. He (Brendon McCullum) is not the ideal candidate to be bowling when you've got just 123. He's one the most destructive batsmen in the world if he comes off and today he did.
Southee: 'It's a packed house, it was pretty special to come out and play. I think we've been bowling well as a group for a long time now. Everyone has had their moments and I think today was just one of those days where every thing went well for us. He (Shane Bond) has been great in the time that he's been with us. I think he just gives you the confidence as a player and a lot of work behind the scenes he does. Another great team performance.'
Tim Southee is the Man of the Match 
New Zealand win by 8 wickets and they are all smiles in the dug-out.
Over 12.3 SCJ Broad  to KS Williamson, 5 wides. Short ball on the stumps, Williamson was shaping up for the pull, but he lets it go at the last moment, the ball bounces over his head, the keeper tries to jump high and grab the ball but it evades him.
