Congratulations to New Zealand on winning the second and final Test of the series, and thereby winning the series 1-0.

Below are some of the highlights of the match.

  • James Anderson became England's most prolific Test cricketer with 162 appearances, overtaking Sir Alastair Cook
  • Anderson's 12th Test appearance at Edgbaston is also a record, surpassing Alec Stewart's 11
  • New Zealand's wicket-keeper, Tom Blundell, made the joint-record number of dismissals (8) in a Test at Edgbaston. Chris Read had featured in the same number of dismissals for England against New Zealand in 1999
  • In the first New Zealand innings and for the first time in Test history, three successive batsmen scored 80 without going on to reach 90
  • England's opening stand of 72 in their first innings was their first opening partnership of 50 or more for ten innings. England's most fallow run for consecutive partnerships under 50 was 15 innings between 31 January and 14 September 2019
  • Trent Boult became the third New Zealander bowler after Sir Richard Hadlee and Tim Southee to take 50 Test wickets against England
  • The Test saw only the third instance of two players scoring between 80 and 99 in one innings and a duck in the other during the same match. The other occasions were between Australia and England at Sydney in 1936-37 and West Indies and England at Bridgetown in 1947-48
  • New Zealand's series win is their third in England. They previously won in 1999 (four Tests) and 1986 (three Tests)
  • England's second innings 122 is their fourth-lowest total at Edgbaston. Their lowest is 89 (with one player absent) against West Indies in 1995
  • This is New Zealand's first Test victory at Edgbaston. They had lost their four previous matches there in 1958, 1965, 1990 and 1999
