New Zealand shrugged off 5 consecutive defeats with 1 of their most memorable victories in recent times, squaring the 2 Test series with a 167-win at the P Sara Oval this evening.

Hammered in under 3 days in Galle, New Zealand stretched the hosts in Colombo by holding the edge over all 5 days and rounded things off just after tea, despite a resilient 84 by Angelo Mathews.

It was New Zealand's first Test win in Sri Lanka since 1998, and in a remarkable coincidence, that victory at the R Premadasa Stadium was also by the same margin.
