The second and final Test of the ongoing series between England and New Zealand is set to commence on Thursday. The opening Test at Lord’s ended in a draw thanks to the rain on the third day. The visitors dominated throughout while for England, Rory Burns shone with a scintillating ton. Devon Conway was the star of the show though who scored 200 in his debut innings at Lord’s.
The second Test, however, will see a lot of changes in both sides. Ollie Robinson will not play for England and even Mark Wood is likely to be rested. For New Zealand, Kane Williamson and Mitchell Santner have been ruled out of this Test. Tim Southee is also expected to be rested while Trent Boult will return after missing the opening game.
