Pitch Report of the Lords’
This will be the first Test match at the Lords’ since the 2nd Ashes Test in 2019. The pitch has always favoured the pacers while spinners have dominated the day 4 and day 5 of the competition. Going by what we have seen in recent times, the teams are likely to bat first at this venue if the conditions are good.
The climate is likely to overcast on Wednesday with the temperature being around 26 degrees Celcius for most of the day. While Day two is likely to face the same cloudy climate, there is a huge chance for rain on Friday and Sunday. Based on forecast, the teams will prefer batting first here.
Joe Root (c), Rory Burns, Zak Crawley, Dan Lawrence, Jack Leach, Mark Wood, Sam Billings, Craig Overton, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Ollie Pope, Ollie Robinson, Dom Sibley, James Bracey, Olly Stone, Haseeb Hameed

ENG vs NZ Dream11 Match Prediction Choice For Captain And Vice-Captain
Joe Root is undoubtedly the best choice for the captain here. Root is in good form at the moment, had a decent run in county matches and also, in his last 10 games, he has scored 973 runs with an average close to 67. He is likely to fill in with the ball as well.
Kane Williamson showed a glimpse of form in the IPL after recovering from injury recently. The injury made him miss out on early matches this year and he will be keen for a fresh start here. His last Test came against Pakistan early this year where he smashed a doubleton.
James Anderson will certainly enjoy bowling here at the Lords. He is closing in for his 1000th First Class wicket and has a good record at the Lords too. He has 103 wickets at an average of 23.89 with six five-fors. Undoubtedly, one to watch out for here.
Devon Conway has been in excellent form for a long time now and has impressed everyone in the limited-overs. He is all set to make his debut in the longest format of the game. In fact, in the practice match recently, he smashed an unbeaten fifty as well. He has three 70-plus scores in his last five international games.
ENG vs NZ- Top picks by Experts
Neil Wagner is likely to dominate with the ball here. There will be something for the pacers and he is likely to explore the conditions along with Kyle Jamieson here.
Zak Crawley is in good touch at the moment and a lot depends on his performance here. He has 422 runs in his last six games in the longest format for England.
Ross Taylor will be making a comeback after his injury. Undoubtedly, a must-have pick here and he will be the key in the middle order for the team. However, he doesn’t enjoy a good record against spinners here and will be an interesting contest for sure.
