England's four months of cricket miseries ended in yet another defeat today when New Zealand completed a hat-trick of one-day wins within a week.

Only David Gower, 53, and Allan Lamb, 37, gave England any hope of a face-saving win at Lancaster Park today but those hopes vanished when they were separated Chasing New Zealands's total of eight for 211 in 50 veers, England was all out for 127 in 40.1 ovcrs..

New Zealand's 84-run victory followed victories in Auckland last Saturday and Wellington on Wednesday.

It compounded the woes of Rob Willis' team, which had already lost the Ashes to Australia and failed to make the finals of the one-day series in Australia.

In today's match, New Zealand compiled a modest 211 in its 50 overs after Geoff Howarth won the toss. Openers Glenn Turner and Bruce Edgar put on 64 but New Zealand's middle-order collapsed. At one stage New Zealand was eight for 156 but Martin Snedden and John Morrison refused to surrender.

"We should have won," Willis said after the match. "But we didn't bat with any great skill so I'm afraid we lost the game.- Willis said the four mouths in Australia and New Zealand had been disappointing.

Howarth attributed the win to a team effort and said the record home crowds in the three New Zealand matches had made a difference England's innings began disastrously on the second ball when Glenn Turner took a simple catch from opener Ian Gould off Snedden.

Chris Tavaré was out with eight runs on the board but Gower and Lamb then began to swing the game England's way They played some fluent, piercing strokes and the score rose steadily to 94 before Lamb was caught at deep mid-on by Ewen Chatfield.

Gower went nine runs later and from then on it became an England procession. 

None of the remaining England batsmen offered any resistance to the relatively gentle New Zealand attack which, for the fifth one-day match in succession, was without top fast bowler Richard Hadlee.

Snedden won the man-of-the-match award for his combined contribution of an unbeaten 31 and two for 14 off seven oven.
