Currently, England is suffering in the red-ball cricket and for that, they are standing at the bottom of the World Test Championship points table. They have registered only one victory in their last 17 encounters. They will be forward ahead of the series against New Zealand. And it would be a great motivation for the new set-up if they get the success against current World Test Champions.

The most talkative thing that happens after the new set-up is the return of James Anderson and Stuart Broad to the test team. Ben Stokes will be aiming to end the losing streak by utilizing these two ace pacers.

Moreover, there will be pressure release for Joe Root after stepping down from the captaincy. As the pressure will be off him so he can play more freely. Coming to the New Zealand side, Kane Williamson will also gear up for the clash in the longest format. End of the day both sides will be looking for a win so that he can get the crucial points for the WTC points table.
