London : England, not for the first time, will try to re-launch themselves as a ODI side when they face World Cup finalists New Zealand in the first of a five-match series at Edgbaston on Tuesday. Jos Buttler, England’s wicket-keeper accepted the team’s approach to 50-over cricket had to change. “You have to be brutally honest and say we were getting it wrong,” the 24-year-old said. “We have to be looking at scores of 350 and upwards,” added the Lancashire gloveman. “That’s the way the game is going. In a few years we’ll look back at the (2015) World Cup and say it was a turning point in 50-over cricket.” “We certainly played well that day. That’s the way we want to play,” said New Zealand coach Mike Hesson, who last week saw his side square a two-Test series with England at 1-1 after a dynamic 199-run win at Headingley. “Hopefully conditions allow that but if not, we’ve got to try to skin the cat a little differently.” —PTI
