The bowler-friendly drop-in pitch at the Jade Stadium in Christchurch saw wickets tumble at regular intervals in both team's innings in the first Test of the 2002 series.
That was before Graham Thorpe and Andrew Flintoff launched into a 281-run sixth-wicket assault from 50.5 overs in England's second innings, with Thorpe scoring the third fastest double century in history.
Nathan Astle soon went two better, smashing 200 from a record 153 balls - his second hundred from 39 balls - in New Zealand's run-chase.
Unfortunately for Astle, New Zealand still lost by 98 runs but hit back to draw the series 1-1.
