A significant milestone for veteran Black Sticks midfielder Ryan Archibald.

The 4-1 win over Malaysia in the opening test of the four-match series was Archibald's 300th appearance for New Zealand, a feat only achieved by Phil Burrows and Dean Couzins.

Archibald says he doesn't measure his career by appearances, but this is special.

He says it's a year that means a huge amount and this achievement is one of many things to be ticked off this year.

The second test is in Tauranga tonight.
