England in NZ 1996 - Atherton and Gough dominate
Mike Atherton and Darren Gough in action in New Zealand
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.
