England is all set to start their home summer with a two-match Test series against New Zealand from June 2. This will be the first red-ball series of the English team since their India tour, where they faced a 3-1 loss in February-March earlier this year.
On the other hand, Kane Williamson and Co. would take this two-match series as a dress rehearsal for the upcoming World Test Championship (WTC) final against Virat Kohli’s India.
The Lords Cricket Ground in London will host the series opener while the final Test will be played at Edgbaston in Birmingham.

- First Test: June 02 – 06 at Lords Cricket Ground, in London (10:00 AM GMT)
