English pacer Steven Finn wrecked havoc for the Kiwi top order taking three wickets for 16 runs from his four overs.
Off-spinner Graeme Swann also played an important role in restricting New Zealand to a sub-150 total, chipping in the wicket of Rob Nicol and giving away 20 runs from his four.
The only batsman who provided some fireworks was James Franklin who scored a 50 of 33 balls before being run out. His innings included four boundaries and two sixes.
