Captain Brendon McCullum lamented New Zealand's latest capitulation at the hands of England, after falling to a mere 68 all out - and a 170-run defeat - on day four of the series opener at Lord's on Sunday.
The veteran Daniel Vettori has reportedly been called up to New Zealand's squad for the second Test against England at Headingley next week.
Any hopes New Zealand had of reaching a reasonably modest 239-run target were promptly resigned to tatters by seamer Stuart Broad's career-best seven-wicket haul.
England ended day three of the first Test at Lord's in a solid position, on 180 for six and holding a lead of 205 runs over New Zealand, despite losing four wickets for just 12 runs late in the day.
A valiant New Zealand reached stumps on day two of the first Test at Lord on 153 for four, just 79 runs behind despite James Anderson stealing the headlines with his 300th Test wicket.
