After an innings loss against New Zealand in the opening match,England is going to fight back in 2nd test match.It was all one man show by Young Wicket Keeper Batsman B J Watling who scored 205 runs which steal the show for the 1st Test.For England it was only Joe denly and Ben Stokes who shown some fight but that was not enough.After a great performance in ashes Jofra and Broad, failed to impress with there bowling stats which results broad 0-64 and Archer 1-107.Joe root’s form continues to trouble England,only 3 half centuries in last 10 innings and in those it include 3 ducks but we can expect some fight back from him and may score big as he use to.Young debutant Dominic Sibley fail to impress but he can be Trump for England after his amazing domestic record,he is going to be my player to watch out for.As for New Zealand they is big blow as there star performer Boult was Replaced after he face an injury during 1st test there is chances of Henry or debutant Ferguson to replace him.Just like england, New Zealand also facing some problem from the form of their captain Kane willamson, only half centuries in last 5 innings, we hope he can show his class and score big.
