New Zealand survive for draw in first series win over England in 19 years.

New Zealand held firm to claim their first series win over England in 19 years as the second Test ended in a draw on the final day.

England were desperate to end their gruelling trans-Tasman tour on a winning note, having suffered a humiliating 4-0 loss to Australia in the Ashes, while Joe Root's men were humbled by an innings and 49 runs against New Zealand in the opening Test.

And England looked on track to salvage something from their travels and level the series as Stuart Broad (2-72) claimed wickets from the first two balls in Christchurch on Tuesday.
