England skipper Nasser Hussain achieved a personal landmark, when he reached the 4,000-run mark in the 3rd and final Test at Auckland on April 3. However he could not help in avoiding defeat in spite of his fighting innings of 82 as England lost the Test by 78 runs.[an error occurred while processing this directive]Hussain becomes the 23rd player from England to surpass 4,000 or more runs in Tests.
