New Zealand ties T20 series with England 2-2 after winning final match by 6 wickets

Nottingham, on September 6th.
New Zealand was able to come back after being behind by two points to tie the Twenty20 series against England. They won the fourth and last match by six wickets on Tuesday.
New Zealand set a goal of 176 runs to win the match at Trent Bridge. Tim Seifert, the opening batsman, scored 48 runs in 32 balls. Then, Glenn Phillips scored 42 runs in 25 balls to speed up the team’s chase in the middle part of the match.
Mark Chapman, who scored 40 runs in 25 balls, helped the touring team win the game with 16 balls remaining. This victory marked a big change in the series that England had previously been doing well in, winning heavily in Durham and Manchester.
New Zealand won against England by 74 runs in Birmingham on Sunday. They played excellently in the fourth match, especially after stopping Jonny Bairstow (who scored 73 runs off 41 balls, including six sixes), who had given England a quick beginning.
England started off well with a score of 105-1 after 11 overs. However, they lost momentum when Bairstow got out, and their score dropped to 175-8. This wasn’t enough on a ground where high scores are usually made.
The teams will play four matches in a series that starts on Friday. This series is a practice for the Cricket World Cup in India, which begins in October.
In England’s worry, Bairstow couldn’t be the wicketkeeper in New Zealand’s pursuit because he was injured. Jos Buttler, who didn’t play at the beginning of the game to take a break, decided to wear the gloves and join the game. Rewrite this text in simple words:
