Match notes
  • General
  • It is only the 5th time in Test history that a side has lost the first Test of a 3-match series and gone on to win the series. It is the 4th time in the last 4 seasons, and Sri Lanka become the first side to achieve this feat twice. New Zealand also become the first side to lose a 3-match series twice after winning the first Test.
