ENG vs NZ Dream11 Prediction: The 2nd TEST of the New Zealand Tour of England 2021 will be played between England and New Zealand at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground on Thursday, June 10, 2021.
ENG vs NZ Match Preview
England and New Zealand will lock horns against each other in the second match of the two-match series on Thursday at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham.
The first match between the teams ended in a draw and both sides will be aiming for a victory to seal this series. In the first Test match, the viewers witnessed some brilliant individual performance from both sides in form of England’s Rory Burns and Devon Conway of New Zealand.
Ollie Robinson was also productive with both bat and ball as he scored a half-century and took 8 wickets in the match.
However, entering the second Test, England will be without Ollie Robinson, who has been suspended by the England board due to off-field issues. Joe Root looked in great touch in the first Test match and will be the key player for England in the decider.
New Zealand, on the other hand, will be sweating over the selection of star bowler Trent Boult, who is available for the clash after missing the opening game due to bio-bubble rules.
Mitchell Santner and their regular captain Kane Williamson have been ruled out due to injuries. Tom Latham will lead the side in Williamson’s absence while Will Young has been selected as Williamson’s replacement.
