Points for the test series
McCullum 4 - In the end his 60 and 34 were handy that helped our cause. Copped some bad luck with an lbw but he angered the cricketing gods with his 2nd inning dismissal in the 1st test.
Guptil 0 - What was his high score 11? Even though his fielding was gun I am not giving out points for that.
Williamson - 6. Performed amazingly well in one out of 4 innings. Looked like he meant business in this 2nd test. Batted like an old woman in the first test.
Taylor - 9. 2 gun knocks and that is as much as you can ask from him. He created this victory through will power.
Flynn - 4. A good fifty. Did not come to the party in other innings. Needs to get more consistent.
Franklin 1 - took a wicket
Van Wyk - 3 - kept well. Did not perform with the bat. Got too cute in one inning.
Tastle - 5. Decent effort. May not be test standard as a bowler right now.
Bracewell - 3. Finally got it together in the final inning. Plus a handy inning in one dig. Will be dissapointed he didn't do more. Did enough to keep his spot.
Southee 10. No need to comment on him.
Patel 5. Bowled very well at times. Possibly needs a better arm ball to be more effective. Would have liked 1 or 2 more wickets. Did enough to hold Dan off from taking his spot.
Boult 8. Bowled without luck at times. Test standard opening bowler.
