The second Test match will most certainly be a test of the England team’s character, willpower and grit. The number of controversies looming outside of the cricket ground might be taking a toll on them and they will be itching to play some good cricket. The 2nd Test match between England and New Zealand will be beginning at 3:30 PM (IST).
In the pace conducive and swing-friendly conditions of England, the English bowlers were bound to play well and the pacers did perform well in the last match. However, the 22-yard strip started deteriorating and spinners too had some offering. England’s decision of not including a regular spinner in the team costed them. Thus, we could see somebody like Jack Leach, included in the playing 11.
Kane Williamson would be happy after his team’s performance in the last game. Even after Williamson’s failure in both the innings, the other guys stepped up and rose to the occasion. However, the Kiwi skipper has been ruled out of the match along with Mitchell Santner, and fans will be seeing Tom Latham don the role of a captain. Devon Conway’s dream debut helped New Zealand have an upper hand during most of the match.
