Broad, Pietersen, Vaughan & more: Twitter reacts to England’s win
Stuart Broad, Kevin Pietersen and Michael Vaughan all tweet their thoughts after England secure a T20 series win in Welington
Alex Hales hit an impressive 80 to help England beat New Zealand by 10 wickets and secure a 2-1 Twenty20 series win.
The home side could only post a tame 139-8 before opening pair Hales and Michael Lumb helped England to victory with 44 balls left at Wellington.
Here is the best of the Twitter reaction from the winning team, their colleagues and former team-mates.
Captain Stuart Broad (@StuartBroad8) praises his squad for a special win: “Well that was a special performance to be involved in!! Everyone contributed in this T20 series. Love winning!”
While Alex Hales (@AlexHales1) is much more concise in expressing his joy: “You beauty!!!!!!!!! Hell of a win #ccchhhhheeeeeeeeeeerrrssssss @StuartBroad8 @josbuttler”
Luke Wright (@lukewright204) is happy to be celebrating success with some of his best friends: “Nothing better than winning matches for England with your best mates!”

Kevin Pietersen (@kevinpp24) pays his congrats to limited-over coach Ashley Giles ahead of his return to the ODI side: “HUGE congrats to Gilo and the team for the T20 win. Excellent win!!!!!”
Danny Briggs (@DannyBriggs19) was impressed by the emphatic style of the win: “Proper win by England!! Good series win as well! #raining6’s”
Looks like former England captain Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) is getting a bit carried away: “Looking forward to working with @FOX_CRICKET during the Ashes this summer… 3-0 England…”
