Black Caps test series win over Sri Lanka sets new record

The Black Caps have won the second and final test against Sri Lanka in Christchurch by a record 423 runs to clinch a 1-nil series victory. Trent Boult and Neil Wagner quickly wrapped up Sri Lanka’s second innings at Hagley Oval. Boult trapped Dushmantha Chameera in front after only 10 minutes of play on the fifth day. With the first match in Wellington ending in a damp draw, today’s victory saw the hosts win a fourth successive test series for the first time. The victory was even more impressive given New Zealand had been reduced to 64 for six on the first day, before Tim Southee produced a counter-attacking innings of 68 that pushed their total through to 178. Southee then blasted the top off Sri Lanka’s reply, reducing them to 21 for three. The performance on the first day earned him man-of-the match honours.
