The centuries scored by and Brendon McCullum were instrumental in the first Test victory, while Nathan Astle's hundred in the second set up another comprehensive win.

Stephen Fleming and Lou Vincent were also among the runs, while Bond was well supported at the bowling crease by Vettori, Chris Martin and James Franklin. The series was not only a special one for Vettori because of his record-breaking century in the first Test, but he also became the third New Zealander to take 200 test wickets.
