Kiwis Downed Again

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand -- Alec Stewart and Graham Thorpe shared a 170-run stand Thursday as England scored a four-wicket victory over New Zealand in the first limited-overs cricket international at Lancaster Park.


New Zealand made 222 for six from its allocated 50 overs, and England responded with 226 for six with seven balls to spare.


Thorpe made 82 and Stewart contributed 81 as England continued the good form it showed in its 2-0 test series win over the Kiwis.
