Kiwis win by one pass after continue, reaction, analysis, highlights, scores, news
The cricket world has been rocked by one of the most remarkable endings in Test history.
It would have been incredible if New Zealand had won in one run; It would have been incredible if New Zealand won after being forced to continue. But both?
After declaring at 8-435, the English limited the Kiwis to just 209 and then forced them to bat again as the comeback began.

Kane Williamson’s 132 made him New Zealand’s all-time all-time run scorer, while two other Kiwis posted 80-plus scores while the hosts managed 483, a 257-run margin.
Yet somehow the English were bowled short of the goal, especially when Harry Brook – who smashed 186 balls out of 176 in the first innings – headed for a diamond duck.
Ben Foakes tried to lead the tail to victory but he was caught by Tim Southee bowling for 35 with seven runs required.
A border from Jimmy Anderson almost got the Englishman there, but then he was caught bowling by Neil Wagner, giving New Zealand their second one-run victory in Test cricket history, after the West Indies vs Australia in Adelaide in the year 1993.
It was also the fourth time a team has won after winning.
Anderson, however, was arguably hard hit, having missed just one delivery before losing his wicket. If there had been, or many of the other very close calls in the final overs, England could have tied the Test.
