ENG vs NZ Toss Prediction and Pitch Report: The wicket at Lord’s has been known to provide a good balance between the bat and the ball. As these are early days in the English summer we can expect the ball to do a little bit more than usual. The spinners could come into play but only towards the last two days.
If ENG bat first: 350-370
If NZ bat first: 330-350
London Weather: It’s 27 degrees Celsius, with slightly overcast conditions. There could be rain, but the chances are low.
Joe Root: This year had started for the England captain in the best possible way he scored two double centuries and a 180 during the sub-continental tour. In the recent county championship as well, he was seen in good knick playing for Yorkshire. With more than 100 Tests and 8617 runs, Root is England’s most dependable and experienced batsman.
Kane Williamson: The New Zealand batsman is the current No. 1 Test batsman in the world and quite rightly so. He has scored 7115 runs from his 83 Tests at an average of well above 50. On top of that, he had scored a hundred at Lord’s when he last played a match.
James Anderson: He has the best-ever record for any fast-bowler in the history of the game. He is a maestro who is getting better at his craft day by day. He recently picked up his 1000th first-class wickets and would want to add to his tally of 614 Test wickets from 160 matches.
Tim Southee: The right-arm pacer has taken 302 wickets in 77 matches for his country so far. He has a knack for picking wickets in swing-friendly conditions. He also has a five-wicket haul at this venue.
