  • Wiseman became the third New Zealander to capture four wickets in a match against Zimbabwe after Shayne O'Connor (5 for 39 at Wellington on 06-02-1998) and Daniel Vettori (4 for 49 at Hamilton on 04-02-1998). Wiseman's figures are also his personal best beating 2 for 21 against Australia at Auckland on 19-02-2000.
