New Zealand beat England by 13 runs under the Duckworth/Lewis method to win the second one-day international at The Oval on Friday and leave the five-match series all square at 1-1.
New Zealand piled up 398 for five — the highest total England had conceded at this level — with Ross Taylor (119 not out) and Kane Williamson (93) putting on 121 for the third wicket.
England, who had themselves compiled a national record 408 for nine in a 210-run win in the series opener at Edgbaston on Tuesday by 210 runs, saw skipper Eoin Morgan make a quickfire 88.
But with England 345 for seven, rain stopped play.
When the match resumed, England needed 34 to win off 13 balls to reach a revised target of 379 in 46 overs and this proved just beyond them as they finished on 365 for nine.
The series continues at Southampton on Sunday.
New Zealand 398-5, 50 overs (R Taylor 119 no, K Williamson 93, M Guptill 50)
England 365-9, 46 overs (E Morgan 88, A Hales 54; N McCullum 3-86)
Result: New Zealand won by 13 runs (D/L method)
Series: Five-match series level at 1-1
