That brings us to the end of the New Zealand summer. It has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience once again. The international summer winds up with an ODI and a T20I between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh at Pallekele. See you then!
Both Alastair Cook and Brendon McCullum pose with the shared trophy. The England players are heading towards the section of the stadium to applaud the Barmy Army.
Brendon McCullum: "The hamstring is alright. Mixed emotions at the moment. I am incredibly proud of the boys. We have been put under immense pressure and we responded well. We never gave up and we gave a tough fight. We tried everything but we came up against some best players who were hell-bent on not losing this match. We gave it everything but we came short. The performances indicate that we are heading in the right direction. We have a big series coming up in a couple of months time in England. Fulton was outstanding and it was just rewards for his hard work. The New Zealand fans turned up and supported us well."
Alastair Cook: "It is a big relief. We had to fight really hard. New Zealand outplayed us. Prior and Bell were outstanding. The 'Never-say-die' attitude, which is so important in Tests, was out in show today. We never underestimated New Zealand. They were on top in the first Test and we were on top in the second Test. We kept losing wickets at crucial times and we seemed to be behind the game. The partnership between Broad and Prior was outstanding. Panesar is a calm guy and I would love to have him at the No.11 position. To have the support of the Barmy Army is fantastic."
New Zealand will be gutted with this. It is not often that they win Test matches against the big teams and today, it was a golden chance. If one has to pin-point some defining moments in this match, then New Zealand will be ruing the two dropped chances of Bell and Bairstow before lunch. That would have really put England under pressure. Prior was then dropped by Wagner after the lunch break and wicket-taking opportunities became hard on a wicket which was benign.
Prior: Don't feel happy to draw a match, but feels good to go over the line. The wicket is still very good, we knew that we just had to back ourselves to bat 90 overs. Broad has been working very hard in the nets on his batting, this kind of innings showed the results of that. I was backing Monty all the time, just needed to give him a wake up call.
Southee: We are gutted, because the guys battled hard for 5 days and could not win. We created chances all day, would have been nice to have some luck. Prior's knock was brilliant. Guys have stepped up at different points of time.
Williamson: The boys tried really hard, but it was a real shame that we couldn't win. There was nothing more that we could have done. It went right down to the last ball. Without a doubt we are proud of the way we played.
Hugs all around. Prior is the centre of attraction. He is being congratulated by all his team-mates. Andy Flower is all smiles. He knows the importance of Prior's knock. What a Test match this has been. Credit must be given to New Zealand. They have dominated a strong England side. Who would have thought that the number 2 ranked side would have to battle so hard on the last day to save the series.
