Current Test Form New Zealand:

New Zealand haven't played a lot of Test matches lately but they haven't been in the greatest of the form. They have drawn the recently concluded 2 match Test series against Pakistan. Prior to that, they played against England, a series they lost by 3-0.

Players to look out for in New Zealand:

1.Devon Conway- He has come a long way in longer versions of the game since his debut for New Zealand. Conway plays both spin as well as pace bowlers well and will play a crucial role for New Zealand in the upcoming series.

2. Neil Wagner - He is a hard working bowler who sets the batters up with his consistent short of a length deliveries. Wagner can prove to be the difference between the two sides in the Test Series.

Current Test Form England:

England have been in a brilliant form in Test Cricket currently. They have recently beaten Pakistan by a margin of 3-0.

Players to look out for in England:

1. Harry Brook- He is a flamboyant batter who can smash the bowlers to all parts of the ground. He is in great form and will look to continue to score runs for his team.

2. James Anderson- This cricketer defies the laws of age. Anderson still has the fire in him to keep picking up wickets when the needs. He will play a great role for England in the upcoming Test series.

Let’s have a look at the squads:

New Zealand: Tim Southee (captain), Michael Bracewell, Tom Blundell (wk), Devon Conway, Matt Henry, Kyle Jamieson, Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, Henry Nicholls, Ish Sodhi, Blair Tickner, Neil Wagner, Kane Williamson, Will Young

England: Ben Stokes (captain), James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Harry Brook, Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ben Foakes (wk), Will Jacks, Dan Lawrence, Jack Leach, Ollie Pope, Matthew Potts, Ollie Robinson, Joe Root, Olly Stone
