The New Zealand cricket team will play 2 tests against England in February. This Test Series is not part of the World Test Championship (WTC 2021-23). Both teams are out of the WTC Finals race where the Black Caps had a forgettable cycle where they finished in 8th place while England finished in 5th place.
This test series would be the first for Tim Southee in New Zealand. The speedster showed great leadership skills in the Pakistan Test Series, where the Black Caps were on the verge of winning the Test Series. The skipper was perfect with his field placements where it never looked like it was his first stint as test captain.

Gary Stead on Trent Boult
New Zealand head coach Gary Stead interacted with The Bharat Express News and was asked about Trent Boult. “No, I hadn’t thought that. I mean, Trent and I have had discussions and I think his return from the UAE would be just a day or two right before the start of testing in England. I think from a workload perspective that’s out of the picture. said Gary Stead.

Riddle for New Zealand
Former Test skipper Kane Williamson had said in one of his interviews that the team is finding it difficult to find similar replacements due to World Cricket’s ever-changing landscape. Trent Boult is someone who is deadly not only with the new ball, but also with the old ball, because the speedster has a lot of variety.
This Test Series would be fascinating as it would be interesting to see if England’s ‘Bazball’ is successful in New Zealand. Skipper Ben Stokes and head coach Brendon McCullum have revolutionized Test Cricket with a fearless brand of cricket.
