The Black Caps are confident they can have Test success against the Three Lions.
New Zealand coach Mike Hesson has warned England that his side are confident they can walk away as victors from their two-Test series in May.
The two sides last met earlier in the year, when three drawn five-day matches showed that the Black Caps were far from pushovers.
England had been expected to easily beat the Kiwis but the home side showed a combination of nerve, skill and stubbornness to come away with a share of the spoils – and were unlucky not to win the second Test at Dunedin.
In the final match in Auckland Three Lions batsmen Matt Prior and Monty Panesar had to show real resolve to bat out the last 19 balls to save the tie with just on wicket spare.
It is this form from New Zealand that Hesson thinks will stand them in good stead for the return tour in England.
“The term ‘unfinished business’ reflects how we felt after that final day of the third Test at Eden Park last month,” the NZ coach said on Sky Sports.
“Being so close to victory against the second-best Test nation in the world was hard to swallow.”
New Zealand start their tour of England with a warm-up match with Derbyshire on Saturday. This will be followed by two Tests and three ODIs, before the Black Caps take part in the last ever Champions Trophy – also being held in England in June.
The Three Lions will be without batsman Kevin Pietersen for the visit of the Kiwis but they should be able to welcome back spinner Graeme Swann, after the bowler missed the last series with an elbow injury.
