New Zealand vs England 2nd Test: The much-anticipated England tour of New Zealand is set to resume with the blockbuster clash between New Zealand men and England men. The sides are set to play the second game and the final game of the two-match Test series hosted by the Kiwis. The match will be played on Friday (February 24) at 3:30 AM (IST) at the Basin Reserve, Wellington.

New Zealand, the current Test champions of the world, are struggling to get back on the winning track. Out of their last five Tests, the Blackcaps have managed to draw two games and have lost all other three. Tim Southee and co. will be aiming to avoid a whitewash at home anyway.

Earlier, in the first Test at Mount Maunganui, England attained a dominant victory over the hosts. It was once again the ‘Bazball’ approach that helped England to lead the series 1-0. Ben Stokes and co. won’t be bothered to seal the series by the way they have done it against Pakistan previously.

As this contest is set to commence, here’s the weather update from Wellington, where New Zealand vs England 2nd Test match will be played.
