Graham Gooch once described New Zealand's Richard Hadlee-led bowling attack as "World XI at one end and Ilford 2nd XI at the other".
Medium pacer Lance Cairns confounded that assessment, though, by taking seven wickets in the drawn first Test in Wellington.
Hadlee was immense in the second Test in Christchurch, scoring 99 before taking eight wickets as England were bowled out for totals under 100 in both innings.
And New Zealand won their first ever home series against England when John Wright, Jeff Crowe and Ian Smith hit tons to ensure the third Test finished a draw.
