New Zealand Tour of England 2022 – England vs New Zealand – 2nd Test Match Prediction

New Zealand would face England in the second Test Match of the series at Trent Bridge in Nottingham. The visitors lost the first game at Lord’s by 5 wickets, failing to capitalise on opportunities that presented themselves due to poor performances from their key players. They must pull up their socks and make a determined effort to challenge the English side, which has been in good form.

The New Zealand team has a poor record at this venue, with the last victory coming in 1986, when only one member of the team was born. They haven’t won a Test in England in over 20 years. The team would be battling history, and it remains to be seen if they are up to the task of tying the series with a win in this game.

The 2nd Test between England vs New Zealand will take place on June 10th, 2022 at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.

England vs New Zealand Team Previews

England (Match Odds – 1.97)

It’s been a good start to the summer, and captain Ben Stokes would be pleased to have begun his captaincy with a win. It was exactly what England’s captain would have wanted. His strike bowlers made the best of the conditions, and the team’s best batsman delivered one of the greatest knocks in recent memory. Stokes would like to see the team continue in this format and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.

Zak Crawley and Alex Lees must form larger partnerships because this has become a recurring issue for the team. Joe Root’s brilliant performance in the previous game will boost the team’s confidence, and he will look to form partnerships in the middle order with Ollie Pope and Jonny Bairstow. Stokes played well in the previous game and, along with Ben Foakes, adds depth to the batting.

James Anderson would like to pick up where he left off in the previous game. The team will be hoping for a strong opening spell from him and Stuart Broad. Matty Potts impressed in his debut and will look to bowl well again. The side comes into this game with a strong bowling attack in Stokes and Matthew Parkinson, and they want to make the most of the conditions.

England Squad

Harry Brook, Zak Crawley, Alex Lees, Joe Root, Ben Stokes (c), Craig Overton, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Ben Foakes, Ollie Pope, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Jack Leach, Matty Potts

Predicted XI: Ben Stokes (c), Zak Crawley, Alex Lees, Joe Root, Ollie Pope, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Jack Leach, Craig Overton, Harry Brooks

New Zealand (Match Odds – 2.64)

Kane Williamson’s team had opportunities in the previous game, but they failed to capitalise on them. Key players’ poor batting performances, followed by poor bowling in the second innings, cost them the game. Williamson and his men must fight it out in the middle, with their backs to the wall. The odds are stacked against them, and the World Test Champions will need to put on a show to win here.

The team would need openers Tom Latham and Will Young to step up after a poor start in the previous game. Williamson and Devon Conway also struggled, and they must perform well in the middle order. The side would be pleased with the form of Daryl Mitchell and Tom Blundell, and they would look to add runs down the order alongside Colin de Grandhomme and Kyle Jamieson.

The pace duo of Tim Southee and Trent Boult impressed at Lord’s, and they will be crucial with the new ball in this game. Jamieson would benefit from the conditions here, and he must take advantage of the bounce on this track. It will be interesting to see how Azaz Patel and de Grandhomme bowl, given that the Englishmen had little trouble with them.

New Zealand Squad

Kane Williamson (c), Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme, Will Young, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Blundell, Michael Bracewell, Devon Conway, Cam Fletcher, Tom Latham, Trent Boult, Matt Henry, Kyle Jamieson, Ajaz Patel, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner

Predicted XI: Kane Williamson (c), Tom Blundell (wk), Devon Conway, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Tim Southee, Kyle Jamieson, Will Young, Colin de Grandhomme, Neil Wagner, Matt Henry
