Our Test team is entering a new era under the guidance of Ben and Brendon. “We’ve put together an exciting squad with a combination of youth and experience that can compete with New Zealand in the Test series beginning next month,” England men’s team managing director Rob Key quote as saying.
England will be led by Ben Stokes.
“We have rewarded individuals who have had outstanding starts to the County season and deserve the chance to build a claim at this level in Harry Brook and Matty Potts,” he said.
“It’s shaping up to be an intriguing series, and I’m looking forward to the team’s opening match against a tough New Zealand team. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for anyone involved in sports in our country “Key said something.
Next week, the squad will convene for the first time in a camp before flying to London on May 29 for the first Test on June 2.
