Nothing beats a Test match that enters the fifth day with all three outcomes still imaginable, and that’s exactly what occurred this week at Trent Bridge. England is looking for their first Test series win since the infamous red-ball reset, while New Zealand is looking to even the series.
Following a remarkable victory at Lord’s last week, England’s momentum was interrupted by the visitors’ big first innings in Nottingham. They fought their way back into the game thanks to Joe Root and Ollie Pope, and now a series-clinching victory is within their grasp.
But there’s still a lot of work to be done. With three wickets remaining and the defiant Daryl Mitchell still at the bat, the Blackcaps had amassed a 238-run advantage in the second innings.
If England can whittle down the tail order early this morning, Root, Pope, and skipper Ben Stokes will be rubbing their hands over a very doable goal. If New Zealand is still present at lunch, the stress will be pushed directly back to the hosts.
The match will take place at London’s Lord’s Stadium. The hosts, England, will be led by new captain Ben Stokes and new coach Brendon McCullum. They have assembled a 13-man team to face the visitors from New Zealand. New Zealand, on the other side, has sent a 16-man squad led by skipper Kane Williamson.
England must win the series to improve their position in the ICC World Test Championship points system. England is presently in ninth place in the competition. England has only won one Test match and has lost seven. Their four games were all drawn. England’s PCT is only 12.5 and 18 points.
New Zealand, on the other side, is ranked sixth in the ICC World Test Championship 2021-23. So far in the competition, New Zealand has played six Test matches. They have won two games, lost three, and drawn one. They have a PCT of 38.89 and a total of 28 points.
