As compared to the depleted ODI side which toured Pakistan in April-May when many of their players were participating in the IPL, New Zealand are back to near full strength with the return of Tim Southee, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Devon Conway, Finn Allen and Lockie Ferguson.
“It’s also great to welcome Trent back into our ODI unit as he begins his preparation towards the World Cup in India.”
New Zealand will start the England tour with T20 warm-up games against Worcestershire and Gloucestershire on August 25 and 27 before the T20Is on August 30, September 1, 3 and 5. The ODIs will be held on September 8, 10, 13 and 15.

Southee and Ferguson are among 11 New Zealand players to feature in the 100-ball tournament this time. Those picked for the England T20Is, which will precede the ODIs, will then join the New Zealand side for the series starting on August 30, three days after the Hundred final at Lord’s.
