England won the first Test of the three-game series with Joe Root’s 100 unbeaten run on day four proving invaluable as the hosts chased 277 to win by five wickets. Captain Ben Stokes has named an unchanged team for this second match with spinner Jack Leach recovering from the concussion he suffered the first morning in Nottingham.

For the Blackcaps, Michael Bracewell replaced captain Kane Williamson, who tested positive for Covid on Thursday. Tom Latham took over the visitors’ captaincy, whose other two changes saw Henry Nicholls replace Colin de Grandhomme and Matt Henry replace Ajaz Patel.
