New Zealand take on England in the third and final Test match starting on June 23. The visitors have already lost the three-match series after losing the first two Tests. They are playing for pride in the third Test and looking to pull one back.
The Kiwis have now lost 50 Test matches against England in their age-old rivalry. In 109 Test matches between the two sises, the Kiwis have won just 12 test matches overall. They have a win percentage of 11 per cent against England which is probably their worst against the top teams.
The side is grappling with the injury and availability problems of their key players. Colin de Grandhomme and Kyle Jamieson are already unavailable for the final Test. There are also question marks over Devon Conway‘s availability after he contracted covid. Kane Williamson is fit and will make a comeback into New Zealand‘s playing XI.
