ENG vs NZ Match Details

Match: England vs New Zealand, 1st Test | New Zealand tour of England

Date: Thursday, 2 June 2022

Time: 15:30 (GMT+5.5) / 16:00 (GMT+6)

Format: Test

Venue: Lord’s Cricket Ground, London

ENG vs NZ Preview

  • New Zealand hasn’t won a Test match at Lord’s since 1999, so that will be on their thoughts.
  • Trent Boult, the spearhead of New Zealand’s bowling attack, would be missed, and this would be a major setback to the squad.
  • England has only lost twice in their last ten games at Lord’s, which could boost their confidence.


On Thursday morning, England and New Zealand will begin their three-match Test series at Lord’s in London. Former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum has been named England’s new coach, and all-rounder Ben Stokes has been named captain. New Zealand will be the World Test Champions when they come.  The game starts at 11:00 a.m. local time.

After a dreadful 2021 and early 2022, England will begin their summer fixtures. They will, however, bring a new attitude and enthusiasm to the field under the new leadership on and off the field.

New Zealand won the World Test Championship after defeating England in a Test at Lord’s last summer. They have, however, already been defeated in Tests this year by South Africa and Bangladesh.

ENG vs NZ Weather Report

On match days, the temperature is forecast to be approximately 19°C, with 44 percent humidity and a wind speed of 13 km/hr. During the game, there are no chances of rain.

ENG vs NZ Match Toss Prediction

Heavy rain is expected on the first day of the tournament, but conditions will improve as the game proceeds. The team that wins the toss in this game will want to take advantage of the conditions by choosing to bat first.

ENG vs NZ Pitch Report

Because there has been a lot of rain in the North London area during the last week, the pitch should be soggy. The surface rarely favors spin bowlers, and we expect the same to be true in this Test.

England Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Ben Stokes is expected to give fellow Durham player Matty Potts his Test debut in his maiden game as full-time Test captain. James Anderson and Stuart Broad, two seasoned right-arm speed bowlers, are expected to return to the England lineup for this Test.

After missing the series against South Africa earlier this year, Kane Williamson will captain New Zealand in this Test. As a result, Tom Latham will return to the starting lineup as an opening batter, while Daryl Mitchell will be dropped from the starting lineup. In the absence of Trent Boult, expect Kyle Jamieson and Tim Southee to lead the bowling attack.
