Moreover, the Test series against England will see two of the most effective fast bowling pair take centre stage with Anderson and Broad head-to-head against Tim Southee and Trent Boult.

Boult said that they have the experience to perform well in the series.

”I’m not going to sit here and say we’re looking to out-bowl either of those guys, but it is a big part of our season. Tim and I have played enough cricket together to know what is needed to make us bowl well. It’s something Tim and myself have been looking forward to.’
