ENG Playing 11 for England vs New Zealand, 1st Test, Player stats for Today’s Dream11 Team Prediction


ENG playing 11: England will be starting their supposedly new era under the newly appointed talismanic captain Ben Stokes. This will also be Brendon McCullum’s first task for England as the head coach of the test team and it is against his own country New Zealand. This will be a very tough challenge for England as they have hit rock bottom with respect to their test side. They are at the back of a terrible series loss in West Indies where their batsmen had no clue facing Kyle Mayers who was bowling gentle medium pace. England would have to content with one of the best swing bowling attacks in this series.
