The first Test blip was quickly forgotten as England comfortably won the next two matches to seal the series 2-0.
Darren Gough was in destructive form in the second Test, collecting nine wickets in Wellington, although the Yorkshire tyro missed out on the man-of-the-match award to century-hitting Graham Thorpe.
The third Test was all about captain Mike Atherton's stoic 94 not out and 118, leading England to a four-wicket win in Christchurch.
Glamorgan off-spinner Robert Croft also chipped in with his 5-95 first innings performance, his best ever Test figures for England.
