Who will win New Zealand vs England, 2nd Test 2019?

New Zealand can wrap up a series win when they take on England in the second and final test. The match takes place at Hamilton’s Seddon Park between November 29 and December 3, wit the live action starting at 11:00 local time each day.

BJ Watling hit a double-century in the first match – the first ever by a New Zealand wicket-keeper-batsman – and Mitchell Santner’s maiden test century piled the misery on for the England fielders. New Zealand’s 615/9 declared was scored from 201 overs.

After posting 353 and 197, England’s batting needs to improve – and the tight turnaround will count against their bowlers after the marathon effort in Mount Maunganui too. New Zealand are very much favourites to wrap up a series win.

NZ vs ENG Toss Prediction

England won the toss and elected to bat first in the first test and they will surely do the same again, in a bid to keep their bowlers out of the middle for the time being.

NZ vs ENG Weather Report

There will be some rain around on Friday and Monday, which could affect the chances of a result, but conditions are otherwise clear.

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11

NZ Team News

Lockie Ferguson and Todd Astle dropped out of the squad ahead of the first match, while Matt Henry and Tom Blundell were the two players left out. With Trent Boult an injury doubt, however, Henry could come into the team for the final test. Colin de Grandhomme will also miss out injured, with Daryl Mitchell drafted in to replace him and make his test debut.

NZ Key Players

BJ Watling: His last three test match innings have gradually got better and better – 77, 105* and 205 last time out. He has also claimed 11 catches behind the stumps across his last two tests.

Kane Williamson: The New Zealand captain hit a half-century in the first match and, while it was overshadowed by Watling and Santner, it continued his excellent test record – his 31st half-century, complemented by 20 centuries.

Tim Southee: Continued his excellent bowling form against England with 4-88 in the first innings of the first test. He then took his 400th first-class wicket in the second innings, of which 256 have been taken in tests.

NZ Team Form

After bouncing back from their first-test defeat to beat Sri Lanka in their previous series, New Zealand carried that form into this series with a dominant victory against England. After restricting the tourists to 353 on a batting wicket, they posted 615/9 declared in reply – BJ Watling hitting a double-century and Mitchell Santner a century. Neil Wagner’s 5-44 then sealed an innings win.

New Zealand Predicted Playing 11

  • Jeet Raval, Tom Latham, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, BJ Watling (wk), Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Matt Henry


England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

Dom Sibley made his England debut last time out, opening the batting with Rory Burns. Zak Crawley was overlooked, but could be handed a test debut in the second match of the series as England gear up for the series with South Africa. With Jos Buttler an injury doubt, and Ollie Pope set to take the gloves, that is the obvious way in for Crawley’s debut. Chris Woakes, Saqib Mahmood and Matthew Parkinson were the three other unused players for the first test.

ENG Key Players

Jofra Archer: Took 22 wickets in four tests during the Ashes and bowled well in the warm-up matches. He took just one wicket in the first test of this series, however from a marathon stint of 42 overs.

Ben Stokes: England’s World Cup and Ashes hero hit 91 in the first innings and then took 2-74 with the ball. He scored a defiant 28 in the second innings but his dismissal sparked the batting collapse that led to England’s defeat.

Joe Root: The England captain’s form has dipped with scores of two and 11 in the first match. He still has more than 7,000 test runs, however, and if he can hit top form again it will ease a lot of pressure on England’s batting line-up.

ENG Team Form

This is England’s first test series since the Ashes, which finished 2-2 and saw Australia retain the urn. Ben Stokes’ stunning unbeaten century in an unlikely one-wicket in the third test kept the series alive, but Steve Smith’s superb batting form ultimately proved too much. England restored pride in the final test at the Oval, however – Jofra Archer taking six first-innings wicket, and Stuart Broad and Jack Leach sharing eight between them in the second innings to seal a 135-run win.

NZ vs ENG Head to Head

England’s poor run of form in this fixture in New Zealand continued in the first test, as they crashed to an innings defeat. BJ Watling scored a double-century and Mitchell Santner added 129 of his own as New Zealand racked up 615/9 declared. While England failed to even bowl New Zealand out once, New Zealand – with Tim Southee again in the wickets against English – had already limited them to 353 all out before bowling them out again for 197 to complete an innings win. It follows their dominant form in the first match against England when they last met in 2018 – New Zealand bowling them out for just 58 in the first innings.

New Zealand vs England Betting Odds

New Zealand are not big favourites to win the second test with the bookmakers, but their form suggests they are worth backing.

NZ Bet365 Odds

  • NZ to Win the Match: New Zealand are narrow favourites at 2.25 to win with Bet365.
  • NZ Top Batsman: Kane Williamson is 3.40 favourite to be New Zealand’s top batsman in the first innings of the second test. Tom Latham is 4.50, while Ross Taylor is 5.00. BJ Watling was their batting star in the first test, and he is in superb form too, so he is an interesting bet at 9.00.
  • NZ Top Bowler: Trent Boult is 3.50 favourite with Bet365 to be New Zealand’s top bowler in the first innings, but with him being an injury doubt, Tim Southee is perhaps a better bet at 3.75, while Neil Wagner is 4.00  - he was their top second innings bowler last time out.

ENG Bet365 Odds

  • ENG to Win the Match: England are 2.75 with Bet365 to level the series.
  • ENG Top Batsman: Joe Root’s form has not deterred Bet365 from listing him as 4.00 favourite to be England’s top first innings batsman. Openers Rory Burns and Dom Sibley are 5.00 and 6.00 respectively, while Joe Denly is also 6.00, and Ben Stokes can be backed at 7.00.
  • ENG Top Bowler: Jofra Archer is 3.50 favourite to be England’s top bowler in the first innings, while Stuart Broad is 4.00 with Bet365. Ben Stokes is 6.00, while Sam Curran can be backed at 5.00 and Jack Leach is 5.50.

NZ Betway Odds

  • NZ to Win the Match: New Zealand are 2.25 favourites to win the second test with Betway.
  • NZ Top Batsman: Kane Williamson is 3.60 favourite to be New Zealand’s top first innings batsman with Betway. Ross Taylor and Tom Latham can both be backed at 5.00, while Henry Nicholls is 6.00 and BJ Watling is 7.00 after his first-test heroics.
  • NZ Top Bowler: With Trent Boult an injury doubt, Neil Wagner is 3.50 favourite with Betway to be New Zealand’s top team batsman. Tim Southee is 4.00, while Matt Henry is 4.33. Mitchell Santner can be backed at 5.00.

ENG Betway Odds

  • ENG to Win the Match: England are 2.62 outsiders for the second test with Betway.
  • ENG Top Batsman: Joe Root is 4.00 favourite to be England’s top first innings batsman with Betway, while Ben Stokes is now second favourite given his form this year. Stokes can be backed at 5.00 with Betway, while Rory Burns is 5.50 and Joe Denly is 6.00 and Dominic Sibley is 6.50.
  • ENG Top Bowler: Jofra Archer remains 3.25 favourite to be England’s top team bowler with Betway, while Stuart Broad is 3.75. Sam Curran is priced at 4.50 with Betway, while Jack Leach is 6.00. Ben Stokes is 6.50.

New Zealand vs England Prediction

New Zealand were far too good for England in the first test, and the English bowlers could be left to toil on a batting wicket again in this second match.

Final Verdict

Back New Zealand to beat England at 2.25 with both Bet365 and Betway.

NZ vs ENG Dream11 Prediction


BJ Watling’s brilliant double century confirmed his batting talent and form in the first test and at 8.5 credits he remains excellent value for this second test.


The good value continues with the batsmen – Rory Burns is 8.5 credits at the top of the order for England. At the other end of the price scale, Kane Williamson and Joe Root are the most expensive batsmen. Williamson hit a half-century in the first test, while Root needs to find form in the second. Tom Latham’s previous test form suggests he will be top value at nine credits, meanwhile.


 Saving credits means plenty in reserve to afford Ben Stokes at 10.5 credits, meanwhile. He proved his worth 184 points in the first match. Mitchell Santner is 8.5 credits and hit his maiden test century in the first test, while both Colin de Grandhomme and Sam Curran are 8.5 credits apiece. De Grandhomme outscored Curran in the first test, while Sam Curran is also 8.5 credits. With Colin de Grandhomme out, he looks the best option.


That leaves three bowling spaces, and with Trent Boult injured, Jofra Archer looks the top option at nine credits. That still leaves 17 credits – enough for Neil Wagner and Tim Southee to round off your team.


Ben Stokes proved his value with bat and ball in the first test and, even though New Zealand won, he remains a good choice for captain given his current form. BJ Watling staked his claim to be considered, meanwhile – his good batting form is coupled with claiming plenty of wickets behind the stumps too.
