COLIN Munro helped New Zealand ‘A’ clinch a seven-wicket win over England Lions to claim the Royal London One-Day Triangular Series at Worcester's New Road.
Munro, who was part of Worcestershire’s NatWest T20 Blast squad, finished on 18 not out from 15 balls as the Black Caps chased down a revised target of 220 in 36 overs under the Duckworth-Lewis method due to rain.
He returns home tomorrow in time for the birth of his first baby.
Jonny Bairstow (77) and Tom Smith (71 not out) enabled the Lions to recover from 43-4, after they had been put into bat, to reach 255-8 in 50 overs.
But an opening stand of 109 runs in 15.3 overs between Hamish Rutherford (95) and Anton Devcich (49) after a lengthy break for rain set New Zealand on the path to a comfortable victory with 3.3 overs left.
Tom Latham (48no) and Munro led the Kiwis home on 225-3.
New Zealand ended the series with an unbeaten record and seven points from their four games with England runners-up on four and Sri Lanka ‘A’ on one.
