English cricket team in New Zealand in 1932–33

Douglas Jardine's England national cricket team toured New Zealand in March 1933 as an afterword to their "bodyline" tour of Australia. England and New Zealand played a two-match Test series. New Zealand were captained by Curly Page. Both Tests were drawn. The second Test of the series, at Auckland, was the 200th Test match to be played by England.[1]
