England are a fabulous colored-clothing team ranking number one in the two white-ball formats of the game, their fortunes have fluctuated in the longest version of the game. Playing at home after a long time, England will be eyeing to get some consistency in red-ball cricket and make a point. It is not going to be easy considering they'll be up against the Kiwis in their next assignment.
England is all set to host New Zealand for a two-match series, which is of massive importance for both sides. England would want to take a step towards reinstating their dominance in the longest version of the game whereas it will be about getting well-prepared ahead of the World Test Championship finale.
The first test of the series will be played from 2nd June 2021 at Lord's Cricket Ground, London. New Zealand and England are two of the most well-equipped teams to play on English soil and this series between the two sides should be a cracking one. A feast for the fans is certainly on the cards.

England Cricket Board and the selectors of the side have certainly surprised one and all with their decisions on the team selection for this test series against England. All eight players who were part of the Indian Premier League are being rested and England will walk in to play the upcoming series with basically a second-string side. It is understandable for a couple of players - Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes but doesn't really make sense to rest the other six especially after IPL was cut short to almost half its length.
While England have had a terrific time in limited-overs cricket of late, their run in the longest format of the game has been far from ideal. They were defeated 3-1 by India in an away series right before the IPL started. Besides, they have a poor record against New Zealand in recent times in test cricket. They were defeated 1-0 each in their last two tours against New Zealand, albeit both of those were away series.
With a tightly packed calendar after this series, it is likely that England are taking this series as an opportunity to groom their young talent. Also, this series is not a part of the World Test Championship and, therefore, holds a lot less importance as far as the record books are concerned.
Despite fielding an almost second-string side for this series, England will present a formidable challenge. The likes of Rory Burns, Ollie Pope, Dominic Sibley, and Zak Crawley have done well in recent times and are well capable of supporting Joe Root to take on the Kiwi bowlers. Having said that, with Sam Curran and Ben Stokes both absent, England are certainly missing a quality all-rounder in their lower batting order. Joe Root will need to show more responsibility and can very well prove to be the top-scorer for his side in this match. This is one punt you'd certainly want to take.
England's bowling certainly oozes clash even with Jofra Archer not there. The likes of James Anderson, Stuart Broad, and Mark Wood are capable of destroying any batting lineup on their day. Ollie Robinson is likely to debut and Jack Leach will likely take the role of a lone spinner in the absence of Moeen Ali.
All in all, England do have some key players unavailable that certainly renders their side a little weaker. Having said that, even without those players, England have a side full of potency that relishes playing in English conditions. Beating them is not going to be an easy task by any stretch of the imagination.

Even though New Zealand would want to win this series, their main aim will be to win the ICC World Championship final that follows the series. New Zealand have never won an ICC event and the first WTC title is what could be a fitting title for them.
The Kiwis haven't been in red-ball action since the beginning of this year and might take some time to get going. Besides, they'll need that wee bit of extra time to adapt to the conditions in England. Historically, New Zealand have not really had a good time in England and their success rate of under ten percent speaks volumes about that.
Looking at New Zealand's squad, the eye immediately catches the absence of an experienced spinner. Apart from him, however, New Zealand have all of their experienced players available and that could be an important factor when playing in England. They do have the services of Mitchell Santner and Ajaz Patel, but it would be interesting to how much of an impact they have in the English conditions.
New Zealand's fortunes will depend heavily on their two most experienced players in Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson, who both are not only equipped to play in any conditions but have also been in terrific form of late. As far as batting is concerned, New Zealand do not have any real weaknesses. We might also see Devon Conway, who has been in exceptional touch and scored a fifty in the tour game, make a debut in this all-important fixture.
Although their bowling lineup looks rather one-dimensional without an experienced spinner, they certainly have bowlers who can to their jobs well. Besides, their fast bowler are all of the different kinds and that will impart variety to the attack. The likes of Kyle Jamieson, Matt Henry, Neil Wagner, and Tim Southee can be difficult to deal with for any batting unit. In Mitchell Santner, they have someone who can hold up one end while quick-bowlers chip away at the other. All in all, New Zealand have a terrific team and if they can adapt to the conditions quickly, they will be a tough team to handle.
TWM Latham, Devon Conway, KS Williamson, Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, BJ Watling, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Kyle Jamieson, TG Southee, Neil Wagner.
Lord's has been a happy bowling ground with conditions heavily supporting bowlers in the first hour or so. However, things do get easier for the batsmen from the second session onwards. Batting four will be a lot difficult and both captains will be wary of that. For that reason, the captain winning the toss should be batting first.

After having a mizzly last week, things are expected to be better in the coming week. The sun is expected to shine bright on all five days with partial cloud cover throughout the game. Over the years, we have seen Lord's produce sporting tests and the same is likely to be the case yet again. Having said that, bowlers do have that wee bit of advantage owing to the greenish tinge on the wicket. Weather generally dictates the scores here and considering that it is likely to stay good, the team batting first would want to put at least 350 runs on the board. Betting on the match total to exceed 996 runs appears to be a lucrative option given the odds we are getting @ 1xBet

English summer is set to get underway with two sides having contrasting fortunes will playing in England. England, as expected being the hosts, are one of the most successful sides while playing in these conditions and New Zealand haven't really enjoyed their time in England over the years. Having said that, New Zealand are a different side and are more equipped to play in these conditions than they ever were. England, on the other hand, are missing eight of their mainstream players, and are certainly not going to be as potent. Considering that reason and the fact that New Zealand have now spent enough time in English conditions to get acquainted with the weather, we would be placing our money on a Kiwi win in the first match.
England's side is a little too inexperienced going into the tournament and will depend heavily on Joe Root. Root has been in splendid touch in recent touch and plays spin as well as pace with remarkable ease. He was guilty of not converting his starts into the big ones, but with excellent performances in the last two series, he has certainly shrugged off that claim. He is certainly the best candidate to be the best batsman for England.
Even though New Zealand have an excellent pace battery, only a few can swing the ball as well as Tim Southee. Besides, he has extensive experience of bowling in similar conditions and will be a handful against an inexperienced English lineup. He could very well be the top bowler for the Kiwis in this match.
Ross Taylor has been in superb form in recent times and generally comes into bat when the ball is a bit older and batting is a bit easier. Besides, a batsman of his class rarely does misses out on an opportunity to score. A fifty is certainly on the cards for Taylor.
