England v New Zealand 2nd Test Betting Tips & Predictions

England showed a lot of restraint and patience in their second innings against New Zealand at Lord’s, as they held on for a draw but unfortunately, one story dominated the headlines.

Ollie Robinson was on cloud nine when he was selected to make his Test debut for England, but while he was out in the field someone decided to trawl through his past Tweets going back years, in a bid to find some dirt on him.

They did exactly that, as it was discovered that the 27-year-old has tweeted a number of historical racist and sexist messages when he was still a teenager. This prompted Robinson to issue an apology instead of focusing on his four-wicket haul in the first innings.

Robinson then went on to score 42 runs and collect another three wickets, but he has since been suspended and will not feature in the second Test which starts on Thursday. His place in the squad for the Edgbaston has gone to Dom Bess.

Getting back to the action, England showed a lot of composure as they restricted the urge to try and chase down 273 runs from 75 overs. They just ensured they survived the day and secure the draw. Over the years, England would have panicked and collapsed and therefore losing the game, so it looks like they are figuring out how to not lose games.

I predicted a New Zealand win in the first Test and had it not rained I feel that would have happened. I am backing the tourists to get over the line in the second Test and secure a series success.

Devon Conway batted beautifully on his New Zealand debut, he posted 200 from 347 balls with 22 fours and one six, to show that he should have been in the Test set-up for a while. England did manage to remove him for 23 in the second innings, but I am backing him to punish the England attack again with the most runs for New Zealand.

England will need both openers to be on top form together if they are to have any chance in this game. In the first innings, Rory Burns scored 132 runs, while Dom Sibley was removed for a duck. In the second innings, Sibley went on to post an unbeaten 60 with Burns out for 25. If these two can put on a partnership, then England could gain a first innings lead. I am backing the ‘Vicar’ (of Sibley) to kick-on from his half-century with the most runs for England.

This should be an interesting encounter, and I feel that the tourists are capable of bowling England out twice and scoring plenty of runs in the process.
