Following a triumphant 2-0 Test series whitewash against New Zealand, England will be hoping to take the same form into the one-day format.
The two teams will play three matches in six days as both the Kiwis and the Three Lions prepare for the upcoming Champions Trophy tournament starting on June 6.
England won the ODI series during the return tour back in February and March 2-1, after beating the Black Caps in the second and third 50-over matches following defeat in the first.
The home side will be the favourites going into these three fixtures as well, after crushing victories over the visitors in both five-day matches at Lord’s and Headingley.
Joe Root has been the man in form for the hosts, scooping up the Man-of-the-Series award for his batting performances against New Zealand, as he scored his maiden Test century at Leeds.
The 22-year-old is being touted as the bright future for English cricket and the Yorkshireman seems entirely unfazed by the step up to international cricket.
For the Kiwis meanwhile it is not quite so positive as an injury to star bowler Trent Boult looks set to rule the seamer out of not only this series but probably the Champions Trophy as well.
That being said, Brendon McCullum’s men will be keen to put a disappointing five-day defeat behind them and prove why they nearly beat England in the Test series back in New Zealand just two months ago.
