England were incredibly bundled out for 58 by New Zealand after just 20.4 overs as they posted their lowest Test score in 130 years on Thursday.
Kiwi paceman Trent Boult was unplayable with the swinging pink ball in Auckland, taking a career-best six wickets for just 32 runs as England recorded their lowest score since managing just 53 against Australia in 1888.
England even flirted with the lowest ever Test total – 26 – held by New Zealand following a meeting between the two nations in 1955, but a Craig Overton boundary spared the embarrassment.
Overton finished unbeaten on 33 as England avoided their lowest Test score of 45, set against Australia in 1887.
58 ALL OUT!— ICC (@ICC) March 22, 2018
Six for Boult, four for Southee, and England have rolled over for their sixth-lowest total ever.

It was an historic match at Eden Park in Auckland, where the first day-night Test in New Zealand was being staged.
New Zealand won the toss and captain Kane Williamson opted to bowl first and it proved to be an inspired decision early as the rampant Kiwis tore through England's line-up, Boult and Tim Southee leading the masterclass.
England were reduced to 18-6, with Boult the chief destroyer after claiming the scalps of opener Alastair Cook (5), captain Joe Root (0), Dawid Malan (2) and returning all-rounder Ben Stokes (0) – playing as a specialist batsman at number three.
Southee (4-25) chipped in with the wickets of Mark Stoneman (11) and Jonny Bairstow (0) during a remarkable spell.
Boult was not done there, however, as he cleaned bowled Chris Woakes (5) for his fifth wicket inside the first hour of play.
Not to be overshadowed by the red-hot Boult, skipper Williamson produced a spectacular diving catch to dismiss Stuart Broad (0), giving Southee his third victim.
Fittingly, Boult took the final wicket after less than two hours of play, leaving Root and England with plenty of work to do.
