New Zealand tour of England, 2022: Full squads, Fixtures & Preview: All you need to know
The New Zealand tour of England, 2022 consists of three Test matches which will be played between 2nd June and 27th June, 2022.
England haven't been in great form of late and have managed to win only one of their last 17 matches. The English fans would expect that to change with the appointment of Ben Stokes as captain and Brendon McCullum as the new Test head coach.
England started off their summer last year with a two-match test series against New Zealand, which the visitors won by 1-0 and then went on to overhaul India to be crowned the maiden Word Test Champions.
While New Zealand are coming off a drawn two-match test series against South Africa, England lost their last test series 1-0 against West Indies, on the back of a horrific Ashes.
New Zealand are clearly rusty coming into the series as they were swept off their feet by County Select XI in the second warm-up match. The team was bowled out for just 148 in their second innings and ended up losing the game by 7 wickets.
England though have picked more or less the same set of players which lost in the West Indies recently. However, the return of James Anderson and Stuart Broad will definitely provide them a fillip.
New Zealand - Kane Williamson (C), Tom Blundell, Trent Boult, Michael Bracewell, Devon Conway, Colin de Grandhomme, Jacob Duffy, Cameron Fletcher, Matt Henry, Kyle Jamieson, Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, Henry Nicholls, Ajaz Patel, Rachin Ravindra, Hamish Rutherford, Tim Southee, Blair Tickner, Neil Wagner, Will Young
