Match notes
  • General
  • Barton's first and only test century (276 mins, 20 fours)
  • Waite sets new world record for wicketkeeping dismissals in a series (26)
  • NZ won with just 21 minutes to spare -- won two tests in a series for the first time (and did not achieve this again until 1982-83) McGlew's last test -- he played with a splinted thumb, and (after a fielding accident in the first innings) a plaster-encased shoulder.
