New Zealand got the better of England by eight wickets in the second Test on Sunday and won the two-match series 1-0 , which happens to be their first series victory in England in 22 years. With his win New Zealand dethrones India in the ICC Test Rankings as the no. 1 team.

The win is New Zealand’s first at Edgbaston in five attempts, and is only their sixth out of the 56 Tests they have played in England.
Set a target of 38 to win on the fourth day, after England were all out for 122 in their second innings, the Kiwis reached the target losing just two wickets, with opener and stand-in skipper Tom Latham scoring an unbeaten 23 off 32 deliveries.
