New Zealand vs England: Black Caps Put Martin Guptill On Standby

  • Captain Joe Root tuned up for Thursday's first test with an innings of 115 against a New Zealand XI in Hamilton

Martin Guptill has been added to the New Zealand squad for the first Test against England as a cover for Ross Taylor.

But the seamer, who needs just one wicket to reach 400 in Test cricket, did not receive the new ball in England's warm-up matches in Hamilton, Mark Wood and Chris Woakes given a crack at the new cherry ahead of him. Former US president Obama, a popular figure across the world, will be making his first trip to New Zealand and lands down under on March 21.

Stuart Broad believes his England Test career is set for another trademark surge of wickets after a back-to-basics spell of self-tuition to solve problems with his bowling action.

With Ross Taylor battling a thigh injury sustained during the one-day series against the touring side, Guptill's inclusion will give New Zealand a extra option across the batting order.

Meanwhile, New Zealand's cricketers will be drawing inspiration from images of Richie McCaw leading the All Blacks to Rugby World Cup glory.

Play is scheduled to start at 1am GMT (2pm local time) for the day-night pink-ball Test in Auckland and 10pm GMT (11am local time) for the second fixture in Christchurch.

Chris Woakes and Mark Wood were handed the new ball alongside James Anderson in England's warm-up games on the New Zealand tour and although a decision was yet to be made Broad was not anxious.

"Obviously you want to be bowling in that twilight period, and at night with the new ball - you've seen in games already where captains declare at eight, seven down and have a go, try to get three or four wickets that night", Overton said.
