Preview –

If it’s about which team is simply favorite here then the obvious favorite in this match is none other than New Zealand. They have shown a tremendous amount of form since last year and even in the world cup, they were nearly undefeatable. The first test might have had its way but in terms of recent form and other facts, there is no doubt that New Zealand is mentally ahead of their opponents. With a good batting lineup and a dominating bowing side, New Zealand is looking stronger than ever at the moment. They will look to dominate this match no matter how.

On the other hand we have got the out of form England. Although they looked like they are bouncing back on the first test but it can not be denied that they are still underdogs in this match and they are under a lot of pressure at the moment. They have some out of form players and as well as players who are playing after quite a long pause and that may effect their play in this match. But England is a formidable team no matter what and they should not be taken lightly.


Prediction –

We predict that, New Zealand will win this match.
