Ish Sodhi and Neil Wagner were hailed as heroes Tuesday after their gritty 188-ball stand secured a second Test draw and series win for New Zealand against England.

England's Jonny Bairstow, who backed up his first innings century with a bright 36 from 54 balls, said the tourists were confident they could take the 10 wickets to get the job done on Tuesday.

BJ Watling scored a battling 19 before getting across the crease to flick Mark Wood to Anderson at backward square before Leach got his second wicket when Latham top-edged a sweep. De Grandhomme and Sodhi put on 57 for the seventh wicket and then Sodhi and Wagner saw New Zealand through to stumps. That said they each have one test to their names and are at the infancy of their careers.

Root said that barring the first innings of the first test when England was dismissed for 58, "it has been an incredibly close series and the most frustrating thing for us as a side is that we really let ourselves down in that innings". "Unfortunately, it's not gone as well as we'd liked".

"It's pleasing we actually showed that we can play - but we weren't quite good enough to win".

England played its first match in Australia on November 4 and finally ended its tour five months later, though only a handful of players took part in all test and limited overs series. Shame [not to win], but that's the way it is. Personally I think the European Central Bank should give Bayliss until at least the 2019 Ashes to prove his credentials.

On the plus side for England, Dawid Malan's graduation from promising to the real deal looks complete despite a quiet series in Auckland and Christchurch.

The expectation is that the two incoming touring teams next season will be Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, with one-day activity against Australia and India as well.

"We didn't get off to the best start, first two balls we thought it could be a tough day". But edges flew just wide of outstretched arms, adding to England's frustration.

"The bowling attack has been brilliant".

Wagner is always up for a fight, with bat or ball and did his bit until finally dismissed with the last ball of the match.

Southee was named Man of the Match for his 6-62 in England's first innings in Christchurch and clearly enjoyed the five days, despite the viral illness which limited his bowling in the second innings. "[Beating England?] Very special, first time in a while, first time for us, something we'll enjoy and savour for a long time".
