Black Caps Best Year Ever

Having just won the first test against Sri Lanka, New Zealand’s Black Caps have made 2014 their best Test year ever.

The Black Caps beat Sri Lanka by an impressive 8 wickets with a day to spare in the Boxing Day test at Hagley Oval in Christchurch. In a series that also saw captain Brendon McCullum score a century (195 runs total), becoming the first New Zealander to score 1000 runs in a calendar year with 1,164 runs.

Kane Williamson also beat the previous record, making the 24-year-old the second highest ranking cricketer in the New Zealand all-time single-years list.

A win or draw in the final test, which begins on January 3rd at the Basin Reserve in Wellington, will see New Zealand’s Test Ranking increase to at least 6th for the first time since 2010, and likely as high as 5th for the first time since 2006.
