New Zealand replacement captain Tom Latham celebrated his first England series victory in 22 years, praising it as an “amazing achievement” for his side.
The Black Caps are heading to the World Test Championship final against India in Southampton next week and have shifted their next opponents to the top of the International Cricket Council table after an eight-wicket win in Edgbaston.
