After winning the toss, New Zealand Captain Kane Williamson said, “There are always a few things to consider here. Looks like a reasonable surface. We have gone with Satner & De Grandhomme as two all-rounders for us. It has been mixed in terms of the weather. The guys have been working really very hard. Our focus is on this series. We know how strong the England team is. It’s all about trying to stick to our plans as best we can”.
On the other hand, England’s Captain Joe Root said, “We would have batted as but we heaven opportunity to make use of some fresh grass on that wickets. It’s great to have a crowd in really special for everyone involved. Jack Leach misses out & we are going to play four-seamers. When you have a player like him, he fills three positions in many ways, but this is a chance for guys to come in & prove they are capable at this level”.
