Hamilton police are praising the well behaved Seddon Park and the successful management of last night's Twenty20 international.

While the Black Caps were dishing out a 55 run drubbing of England on the park, spectators were doing their bit to keep things well under control from the banks and stands of the central city sportsfield.

Waikato Police communications manager Andrew McAlley said just four people were removed due to intoxication.

''Of those two decided to play up and were arrested,'' he said. ''One was brought back for disorderly behaviour while the other gave false details. Both given pre charge warnings.''

Mr McAlley said given the large numbers of people attending, the successful management of the match reinforced Hamilton's reputation as a safe, family friendly location to host large scale sports and entertainment events.
