The Napier Test of march 2008 was hugely memorable.
The teams went into this final game tied 1-1 in the series. Tim Southee (18, and on debut) took early wickets to reduce England to 4 for 3. Pietersen's century saved the team from complete rout.
Stephen Fleming batted well for NZ, Strauss saved his Test career with a second innings century, and Bell also made a lovely hundred.
Panesar was winning the game easily for England until Southee smashed him (and most of the other bowlers) all over, and out of, McLean Park; that 121 run margin was looking quite small when Ryan finally bowled the worst batsman in the world to complete the victory.
We had earlier watched Chris Martin facing 35 mph throw-downs right in front of us, during the lunch interval. He missed more than he hit! First ball in the middle, Jimmy Anderson almost took his head off with a perfect bouncer.
As I said, a hugely memorable game - and indeed series - in a spectacularly beautiful country.
