Team New Zealand is nearly unbeatable on their shores because of the amazing bowling talent they got to utilize the green bouncy pitch along with cold weather conditions. However, with Baz in charge of the England Men’s test team, one can expect wonders from England’s playing eleven. Team England’s bazball approach has made headlines all around the world and just recently they whitewashed Pakistan on their historic tour of Pakistan where pitches were nearly dead but due to an aggressive mindset they were able to win all three games in the series. All cricket odds are with England right now to win another Test series by 2-0 and create another history under Stokes as the leader.
