Trent Bridge 2nd Test LIVE – Kane Williamson ruled out: New Zealand captain Kane Williamson will miss the second test against England after testing positive for Covid-19 the day before the match.

Williamson, 31, took a rapid antigen test after experiencing minor symptoms on Thursday and will be isolated for five days.

The rest of the tour tested negative before the start of the second test at Nottingham’s Trent Bridge on Friday.

Hamish Rutherford joins the team, with Tom Latham as skipper.

“It’s such a shame for Kane to be forced to forfeit on the eve of such an important match” said coach Gary Stead.

“We all feel for him right now and know how disappointed he will be.

“Hamish was with the test team earlier in the tour and played for Leicestershire Foxes in the Vitality T20 Blast.”

ENG vs NZ Live Score: Areas of improvement for New Zealand

  • Batting remains the biggest concern for New Zealand.
  • Kane Williamson’s poor form is costing New Zealand dearly.
  • The higher order seemed fragile during the 1st test.
  • The middle order didn’t support the team well either.

New ball duo Trent Boult and Tim Southee should be better for their first Test stints but New Zealand could freshen up their attack by bringing in Neil Wagner or Matt Henry, with Ajaz Patel’s place in doubt after the spinner only played two overs at Lord’s.

England playing XI: Zak Crawley, Alex Lees, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes (captain), Ben Foakes (WK), Matthew Potts, Jack Leach, Stuart Broad, James Anderson

In Williamson’s absence, all-around hitter Michael Bracewell could enter the team to make his Test debut.

Mount Henry Nicholls again taking Williamson’s place at the top of the order.

Hamish Rutherford, who was recalled to the extended squad after his time in the T20 Blast for Leicestershire, is another option.
