Martin says test win still seems surreal

The veteran New Zealand pace bowler Chris Martin says the test cricket win over Australia still seems surreal.

Martin and several of his teamates arrived home last night following Monday's seven run win in Hobart, the Black Caps first test victory in Australia in 26 years.

Martin, who's 37 years old, says he's found it inspiring playing alongside his younger teamates some of whom are 15 years his junior and weren't even born when the Black Caps last won a test in Australia in 1985.

The Black Caps next test match isn't until late January when they play a one off test against Zimbabwe followed by a three test series against South Africa in March.
