The first Test match between England and New Zealand at Lord’s promises to be a thrilling encounter, with the two sides playing out a dramatic drawn series with each other back in March.
Both teams will be wanting to prove that they are the stronger side in this replay back in Britain, although five places in the ICC Test rankings suggest England have the better chance.
The Three Lions were the favourites to beat New Zealand in the three match series two months ago though and were perhaps a little surprised by the grit and determination of their opponents.
The drawn result suggests that seventh in the world is a little unjust for the Black Caps, as in Brendon McCullum they have a captain capable of changing games their way with his decisions and the wicket-keeper is also extremely useful with the bat.
For England they have the welcome return from injury of Tim Bresnan and Graeme Swann, with the two bowlers missing the last series in New Zealand with elbow injuries.
Swann has not played a five-day match since his demolition of India over the English winter and skipper Alastair Cook will be pleased to see one of his most prized assets back in the squad.
