New Zealand 375 (Latham 105, Mitchell 73, Watling 55, Broad 4-73) and 241 for 2 (Williamson 104*, Taylor 105*) drew with England 476 (Root 226, Burns 101, Pope 75, Wagner 5-124)

Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor capitalised on an end-of-term vibe on the final day at Hamilton, racking up a brace of centuries in an unbroken 213-run stand to ensure that New Zealand claimed the spoils in this two-Test series, thanks to their innings victory at Mount Maunganui last week.

Having gone to lunch on 96 and 84 not out respectively, Williamson and Taylor resumed after the break with an urgent mindset, knowing full well that a heavy band of rain was sweeping in from the west and that the contest was bound to be stopped sooner rather than later.

Sure enough, Williamson hurtled to his century in the third over of the session - though not before he had all but run himself out on 97 with a suicidal single to mid-off - before Taylor converted in style with spots of rain already in the air, dropping to his knees to flog Joe Root over midwicket for four, six, six in consecutive balls, to secure his 19th Test hundred in the nick of time.

The match was interrupted two balls later, and finally called off after a two-hour delay that redefined the parameters of futility. Nevertheless, the context of the finish couldn't undermine New Zealand's fine achievement, as they secured their second home series win against England in consecutive visits, and extended England's barren run of Test results in the country to seven matches and counting.
