Ross Taylor wins the Man-of-the-Match award: "It is always good to come overseas and win. The bowlers were brilliant and they set it up. I guess we got a lot of stick last week for our performances, but we stuck to our task and fought hard throughout five matches. We took our catches and fielder pretty well. Hopefully we can take some momentum from here to South Africa."

Mahela Jayawardene: "Credit to New Zealand team, they played really well and we were always behind. Three Tests would have been brilliant, but this series has been good and tough at the same time. They batted really well and they scored well in the first innings and we didn't do that. Their bowlers kept asking questions and kept the pressure up. We need to improve against the new ball when we go the Australia. But New Zealand bowled very well in these conditions."

Rangana Herath is the Man of the Series: "For 20 wickets, I had to bowl a lot and it was good for me in a two-match series. I am confident ahead of the Australia series."
Looking forward to the azz whooping in Aus :yk
Well done Kiwis, excellent effort to win this test and end up with a drawn series.
Hmm. Had it not been for the capitulation in 1st test, we were in a good position then too. Still a win is a win :108:
Colombo SSC should be torched. Horrible pitch. Compare that to Colombo PSS which is such a good cricket wicket.
