Eoin Morgan was passed fit to play as England stuck with a winning team in the second Twenty20 international against New Zealand at Seddon Park.

Morgan hurt his back in the tourists' opening victory in Auckland on Saturday, and sat out practice on Monday. But the middle-order batsman recovered sufficiently to take his place here as England target a series-clinching victory.

Stuart Broad won the toss and chose to bowl first on a sunny evening. For New Zealand, pace bowler Ian Butler and all-rounder Grant Elliott were fit again and came in for Andrew Ellis and spinner Ronnie Hira.
