After losing the 50 overs World Cup to England in a controversial contest two years ago, New Zealand -- a country of just 5.1 million people -- finally won its first world silverware in cricket.

Arguably, the biggest trophy of them all. The World Test Championship.

The margin of victory was emphatic. Virat Kohli's side were beaten by 8 wickets.
