The skipper, Kane Williamson is the obvious candidate who can pack a punch. The calm and collected Williamson has scored 847 runs in his last 10 Tests with an average of 60.

Trent Boult was the danger man with the ball, the last time England toured to New Zealand for a Test series. Boult won the player of the series award back then and even picked nine wickets in one match.

For England, Ben Stokes' all-round abilities make him a valuable asset for his side. In 57 Tests, Stokes has scored 3593 runs for England while also scalping 135 wickets in the process.
