With England looking at this series as their preparation for the much awaited Ashes, they could not have started on a better note. Captain Cook has regained his lost touch and all rounder Ben Stokes has showed a lot of promise again. Many experts have started to compare him with Andrew Flintoff now. Though the captaincy was a bit defensive by England, having waited for their tail to put up enough before they got New Zealand to bat.
For New Zealand, McCullum’s form is a worry. With the ball expected to move more at Headingley, his misery might well continue. Their nowlers though have fared well. Kane Williamson will hold the key for New Zealand’s batting. Martin Guptil, Ross Taylor and co. will have to stand up again if New Zealand wants to turn the tables.
England: Ben Stokes, Alastair Cook, James Anderson, Moeen Ali and Joe Root
New Zealand: Kane Williamson, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Martin Guptil and DJ Watling.
