Ben Stokes described himself as a “blessed” England captain as he looked to shift credit on to the players who are responding to his methods and surpassing expectations.
The tourists will head into this week’s second Test against New Zealand in Wellington with a 1-0 lead in the two-match series after another commanding performance under Stokes and Brendon McCullum.
