Eden Park to host more Black Caps tests

Eden Park will host more Black Caps tests in the foreseeable future.

The home of rugby in Auckland played host to the thrilling third test draw between New Zealand and England.

It was its first five-day match in seven years.

New Zealand Cricket CEO David White says it was undoubtedly a success.

He says they'll have to review it, but it's certainly one of the top options to host a test.

David White says they were disappointed with the weekend crowds, but that won't stop them from going back.

Meanwhile New Zealand Cricket believes it's been vindicated over its controversial captaincy decision.

The home summer has ended on a positive note with the thrilling draw at Eden Park, but it's come after some ugly months between dumped skipper Ross Taylor and coach Mike Hesson.

David White says the new combination has proven it's right for the side.

He says Hesson and Brendon McCullum have made significant progress in both tactics, team selection and performance.
