The second Test between England and New Zealand is set to take place at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground, starting this Thursday.

Although New Zealand nearly pulled off a big win in the previous Test, Joe Root and co. did well to see the game out. Amid all the controversy surrounding Ollie Robinson, England will ideally look to answer their critics with a better performance this week. While their batting unit has looked iffy, the onus will be on their bowlers to deliver the goods. With a well-oiled bowling attack led by James Anderson and Stuart Broad, England will fancy their chances of a series-clinching win.

New Zealand will have one eye on the all-important World Test Championship final and might rest a few key players. Their bowling attack might bear a different look, with Trent Boult likely to get some game time ahead of the summit clash. Nevertheless, New Zealand are well-equipped on all fronts, making for an exciting contest at Lord's. With the series hanging in the balance, expect a closely-fought game.

Pitch Report

The pitch at Edgbaston should have enough in it to keep the bowlers interested. While the pacers will get the new ball to swing around, the spinners will also have a say as the game progresses. With some cloud cover expected during the day, the batsmen will look to get themselves in and see out the new ball. Although both teams will look to bowl upon winning the toss, the pitch shouldn't change much during the course of the game.
