The Black Caps have wrapped up preparations for the World Twenty20 with a six wicket loss to England in Mumbai.

Batting first, New Zealand was cruising at 78 for one, before England spinner Adil Rashid struck to finish with 3 for 15 to restrict New Zealand to 169 for eight.

England then chased down the total with four balls to spare.

Kane Williamson top scored for the Black Caps with 63, while Mitchell Santner finished the best of the bowlers with two for 24.
