England vs New Zealand: 2nd Test Preview & Betting Tips

June 8th 2022, 11:58pm, By: Andy Rosos

England vs New Zealand 2nd Test Betting Tips

England claimed a fantastic win in the 1st Test against New Zealand from Lord's. The series now heads to Trent Bridge for the 2nd Test starting on Friday night and we have you covered with a preview and betting tips below. 

England vs New Zealand Betting Tips

Trent Bridge, Nottingham, Friday June 10th, 8.00pm (AEST)


Predicted XI: Alex Lees, Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Foakes, Matty Potts, Stuart Broad, Matt Parkinson, James Anderson

After a solid win in the 1st Test, it's hard to know whether England will make any team changes for the 2nd match from Trent Bridge. Jack Leach will likely remain on the sidelines through concussion protocols and the top seven shouldn't change at all. That means the only possible change that the home side will make will be the inclusion of Craig Overton. 

Overton adds extra bounce on what will likely be a bit of a dead Trent Bridge wicket, and he also gives Engl and really valuable runs at No.8. If he comes in, it should either be at the expense of spinner Matt Parkinson or paceman Jimmy Anderson. Stuart Broad and debutant Matty Potts were the standout pacemen in the 1st Test, so will likely keep their spots in the side. 

New Zealand

Predicted XI: Tom Latham, Will Young, Kane Williamson, Devon Conway, Henry Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Blundell, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Trent Boult

The Kiwis will certainly make some changes to their side for the 2nd Test, out of necessity and preference. Colin de Grandhomme will miss the rest of the series after sustaining a heel injury in the 1st Test. Middle order batsman Henry Nicholls should be the replacement for de Grandhomme while Daryl Mitchell will take up the responsibility as a fifth bowler. 

I think the Kiwis probably opt for four frontline pacemen for this clash. Neil Wagner will offer more pace and bounce and should come in for Ajaz Patel, who barely bowled throughout the 1st Test. 

Match Prediction

We unsuccessfully tipped the Kiwis to take the 1st Test and I think for large portions of the game they were the better side. If de Grandhomme hadn't have overstepped the mark, they likely would have rolled through the English bottom order late on Day 3.

I still think there is value in the Kiwis here, espcially after a loss at Lord's has boosted their odds slightly. They will be much better equipped if they decide to go with four pacemen and their batting line-up will get stronger with the addition of Nicholls. Back them to bounce back here at good odds.

Prop Bets

I love this prop bet of 'a wicket keeper to take a catch in all four innings' bet at Sportsbet. The swinging Duke ball is always conducive to snicks and in the 1st Test at Lord's, there was a total of 9 wicket-keeper catches across the four innings.

Joe Root is inarguably the most in-form batsman in the world at the moment. He has racked up 9 Test tons since the start of 2021 and although I think NZ can win this match, there's no denying Root's form. Great odds to be the Poms top scorer in the 1st innings.
