New Zealand would have to fight it out against England in the 2nd Test Match of the series at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. The visitors lost the 1st game at Lord’s by 5 wickets not grabbing opportunities that came their way due to poor performances from their key players. They need to pull up their socks and come up with a spirited effort to challenge the English side that has looked in good form.  

The New Zealand team doesn’t have the best of records at this venue with the last victory here coming back in 1986 when only one member of the side was born. They haven’t won a Test Match in England for more than 20 years. The side would be battling history and it still is to be seen if they are up to the challenge in this game and can level the series with a win.  

England Preview

It has been a good start to the summer and skipper Ben Stokes would be happy to have started his captaincy career with a win. It was just the perfect show England’s skipper would have liked. His strike bowlers made the best use of the conditions and the best batsmen in the team played one of the greatest knocks in recent memory. Stokes would like to see the side carry this format forward and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.  

Zak Crawley and Alex Lees must set up bigger partnerships as this has become a perennial problem for the team. Joe Root’s brilliant show in the last game would add to the side’s confidence and he will look to set up partnerships in the middle order with Ollie Pope and Jonny Bairstow. Stokes did well in the last game and adds depth to the batting with Ben Foakes.  

James Anderson would like to continue from where he left in the last game. The side shall look for a good opening spell from him and Stuart Broad. Matty Potts was impressive in his debut, and he would look to bowl well. In Stokes and Matthew Parkinson, the side has a strong bowling attack going into this game and they would like to make the best use of the conditions.  
 

England Predicted Playing XI:

Ben Stokes (c), Zak Crawley, Alex Lees, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Foakes (wk), Matty Potts, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Matthew Parkinson

New Zealand Preview

Kane Williamson’s side had its moments in the last game, but they failed to capitalize on them. Poor batting performances by key players followed by ordinary bowling in the second innings cost them the game. With their backs against the wall, Williamson and his men have to fight it out in the middle. The odds are placed against them, and World Test Champions have to deliver a stellar show to win here.  

The side would need openers Tom Latham and Will Young to fire as they delivered poor starts in the last game. Williamson and Devon Conway also had a bad game, and they must do well in the middle order. The side would be happy with the form of Daryl Mitchell and Tom Blundell, and they would look to add runs along with Colin de Grandhomme and Kyle Jamieson down the order.   

The pace duo of Tim Southee and Trent Boult looked good at Lord’s, and they will have to play an important role with the new ball in this game. Jamieson would find the conditions here helpful, and he has to make use of the bounce on this track. It will be interesting to see how Azaz Patel and de Grandhomme bowl as the Englishmen didn’t have much trouble facing them.

Batsmen have to build their innings at this venue and play to the merit of the ball. Spinners don’t have much of a role here till the 4th day when the wicket does offer some turn.

Toss: To Bowl

Most teams in the past have preferred to bowl first in this ground. There is assistance for the fast bowlers in the first session of the game and the wicket tends to ease as the game progresses. The side winning the toss in this game shouldn’t have hesitation in opting to bowl first.

New Zealand faces a tough challenge in this game. Their current form and history do not inspire much confidence for the team at this moment. Their top-order needs to fire all cylinders for the side to put up a challenge against England in this game. The hosts would be confident after the victory in the last game. They have their key players in good form and have a good record at this venue. This would make them favorites to win this game.
