England’s summer of cricket starts with a two-match series against the Black Caps on home soil.
England v New Zealand tickets are available now for the Test series against New Zealand.
The Three Lions and the Black Caps go head-to-head once again just two months after their tense drawn series in New Zealand.
Alastair Cook’s side will be wanting to banish the memories of a tour they were expected to win, whilst the Kiwis have unfinished business after nearly upsetting the odds and beating England.
The two-match series will begin at Lord’s on 16 May before the second five-day tie at Headingley starts on 24 May.
England will welcome back injured spinner Graeme Swann to the side after the No.8 bowler in the world missed the first tour with the Kiwis through elbow surgery.
Swann’s return will be a timely boost for the nation as they kick-start a busy summer of cricket against New Zealand; which also includes the Champions Trophy and the Ashes on home soil.
For the Black Caps, captain Brendon McCullum will travel to England fresh from his time in the Indian Premier League with Kolkata Knight Riders, a competition that will have helped tune the skipper’s lust for big hitting with the bat.
