In the fourth innings of a Test, both of a team's openers were out without making a run twice in the span of 10 days. In 138 years of Test cricket, this had only happened eight more times. Martin Guptill and Tom Latham were out without making a run while trying to beat England by 345 runs.

In the end, New Zealand lost by 124 runs in the last session of the Test. About ten days later, when West Indies was chasing 392 against Australia, Kraigg Brathwaite and Rajendra Chandrika did the same thing. West Indies lost by 277 runs in the Test.

This was the ninth and tenth time that both openers were out without making a run in the fourth innings of a Test. It was the eighth time since 1877, but the third time in the last eight months.
