New Zealnd win by an innings and 301 runs, bowling Zimbabwe out twice in a day, who would have thought that at the start of play today. New Zealand's biggest win in a Test match, and well deserved. For Zimbabwe a bit of a step backwards after making a good return to the test arena. It is of course Zimbabwe's biggest defeat in test matches, following the loss of an innings and 294 in Harare in the 2005/06 season.
