New Zealand was a favourite destination for Wally Hammond, who scored double and triple centuries in England's two-Test series in 1933.
Hammond's 336 in Auckland in the second Test was the highest score by an England batsman until Len Hutton's epic 364 against Australia at The Oval five years later.
The Gloucestershire legend's innings still remains the second highest ever Test score by an Englishman.
Both Tests ended in draws, which is not too surprising when considering both Tests were three-day matches with eight-ball overs.
