England head to New Zealand for their first Test series of 2023 as they look to continue their impressive form under the guidance of Kiwi Brendon McCullum.

The Three Lions coach, alongside captain Ben Stokes, has yet to lose a series during his time at the helm.

With England third in the test cricket rankings, some way ahead of New Zealand in fifth, they are the clear favourites to record another victory on tour.

New Zealand’s preparation plans have been hindered by the impact of Cyclone Gabrielle, which continues to cause heavy wind and rain in the country.

After a more settled buildup and the confidence of recent results, England will fancy their chances of another success against Gary Stead’s team.

You can watch all the action exclusively live on BT Sport.
