New Zealand will come to grips with England again as the second Test of the two-match series gets going from February 24 at Basin Reserve, Wellington.

After suffering a heavy 267-run trouncing at hands of England in the last game, New Zealand extended their losing-streak to seven Tests. 

Even, the change in leadership has not worked well for the current World Test Championship holders as the Kiwis lost a red-ball match in New Zealand versus England after 15 years.

The Tim Southee-led outfit cannot pinpoint on one aspect that is letting them down. While their bowling has clicked in phases, Tom Latham has led the charge mostly on the batting front in the last two years.

For England, Bazball has functioned as their ally that has changed their Test fortunes with the team winning 10 of their last 11 matches in the format.

The first Test saw Harry Brook registering 50-plus scores in both the innings. The pace trio of Stuart Broad, James Anderson and Ollie Robinson brushed aside the hosts' batting line-up.
