New Zealand Tour of England 2022: Inaugural World Test Championship winner New Zealand will tour England to play 3 match Test series which is a part of the World Test Championship 2023.

This 3-match Test will be the first Test series for Ben Stokes as England’s full-time captain. Earlier ECB had made a handful of changes by appointing Ben Stokes as captain and Brendon McCullum as the head coach of the Test side.

Anderson and Broad who were left out of England’s squad for the tour of the West Indies has been named in the 13-member squad for the New Zealand series. Notably, England lost the match against West Indies by 0-1

Several England seamers including the likes of Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Sam Curran, Mark Wood, and Saqib Mahmood are unavailable due to injuries.

On the New Zealand side, skipper Williamson, Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Daryl Mitchell and Devon Conway, who are currently playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, are likely to miss the practice matches.

Batting all-rounder Michael Bracewell, who scored 725 and 190 runs in 2020-21 and 2021-22 first-class seasons, has earned his maiden call-up. Wicketkeeper-batter Cam Fletcher and pacer Blair Tickner have also been included in the squad.

Notably, NZ’s regular skipper Kane Williamson, who hasn’t played a red-ball fixture since November last year due to an injury in the elbow, made a comeback to the outfit.
