Match notes
  • General
  • First ever time in Test history that New Zealand have won 3 consecutive Tests - 2 v Zimbabwe, 1 v Sri Lanka in 1997-98.
  • A streak of 8 consecutive home Tests without defeat (4 wins, 4 draws) for Sri Lanka is ended (Sri Lankan record).
  • Partnership of 240 for the 4th wicket of the New Zealand 2nd innings between SP Fleming and CD McMillan is a record in Tests against Sri Lanka (previous: 82 between JF Reid and SL Boock at Colombo Cricket Club in 1983-84). It is the 3rd highest partnership for any wicket for New Zealand in Tests against Sri Lanka. It is the 2nd highest partnership for the 4th wicket in Tests for New Zealand against any country (best: 243 between MJ Horne and NJ Astle v Zimbabwe at Auckland in 1997-98).
  • SP Fleming's match aggregate of 252 runs (78 & 174*) is the 4th highest in Tests for New Zealand.
  • SP Fleming's 174* is the 2nd highest individual Test score by a New Zealander in Sri Lanka (best: JF Reid 180 at Colombo Cricket Club in 1983-84).
  • PJ Wiseman's 5-82 in the 2nd Sri Lankan innings are the 3rd best ever by a New Zealander on Test debut (and best since BR Taylor 5-86 v India at Calcutta in 1964-65). His match haul of 7-143 are the best figures on debut in Tests for New Zealand (previous best: FJ Cameron 6-92 v South Africa at Cape Town in 1961-62).
