New Zealand have won their Test series against England after the second match ended as a draw in Hamilton.

The Black Caps were on 241-2, with a lead of 140, when play was stopped early due to rain, with Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor on 104 and 105 not out respectively.

England, who had made 476 in their first innings, failed to take a wicket in the 41 overs that were possible on the final day.

It means that New Zealand claim the series 1-0 following their innings and 65 run victory in the opening match.
