Root to score a century? Eng vs New Zealand Lord's Test Day 3 Prediction, Market Odds and Live Strea

Devon Conway you beauty! Only the second Kiwi batsman to score a double century on Test debut, Conway blunted and pummeled the much-famed English bowling attack on Day 2 of the 1st Test at the Home of Cricket. He took the home side's attack to the cleaners and is touted to be the next big thing in New Zealand Cricket. His scintillating knock ensured that New Zealand scored 378 in their first innings. In reply to this total, England had early wobbles after Jamieson and Southee prized out the wickets of Sibley and Crawley. However, Root and Burns blunted the Kiwi attack and remained not-out at Stumps. England are 111/2. Could they surpass the visitors' first-innings total? 

Who are the favourites?

England is the slight favourite to win this match. Despite conceding 378 runs in the 1st innings, they could wipe off the trail on Day 3, thanks to Root and Burns' swashbuckling partnership. They will face a fiery Kiwi team that qualified for the inaugural ICC World Test Championship Final but struggled in foreign conditions throughout the 2019-21 WTC season. New Zealand would relish the familiar scenario, but the Barmy Army would be back in the stands in 1.5 years. They would be critical in boosting the English team's morale.

Scorecard Predictions

England would score 440/10 by Stumps on Day 3.

Toss Prediction

Given the somewhat green surface, which will help the pacers throughout the match, anticipate the captain to win the toss and bowl first. If there is cloud cover and rain on the horizon, the team that bats last has an advantage.

Market Tips and Odds (as of 11:00 p.m. IST 3rd June 2021 )

England to win the match (Betway - 3.20)

Expect a humdinger of a match, with England winning by a thin margin.

Despite the fact that New Zealand have scored 378, England have clawed their way back on Day 2 and finished at 111/2 at Stumps.

The host team has a plethora of match-winning attributes in its team to defeat the visitors from the Antipodes.

Betway Predictions- 

England to have a higher opening partnership stand in the 2nd innings (2.20)

Despite their failure as an opening duo in the first innings, Rory Burns and Dominic Sibley make a dangerous starting partnership for England in Test cricket.

Both at home and overseas, these young southpaws have had a fantabulous start to their Test careers.

They'd like to establish their dominance early in the summer and stake a claim for an Ashes position.

England to have a lead after the first innings (3.10)

England are well on track to surpass New Zealand's 378.

England's bowling and batting personnel are formidable enough to torment and punish the visiting Kiwis.

Expect the English bowlers to restrict the Kiwi batsmen to a modest first-innings score, which they will comfortably overcome.

Joe Root to score the most number of runs for England in the match (1.75)

Joe Root, England's captain, has had an exhilarating run-up to this Test match.

He lately hit two double tonnes in two Test series in a row, the first in Sri Lanka and the second in India.

His participation in this game might be vital.

Root is England's mainstay in the middle order.

On Day 2, he is not-out in the 40s at Stumps. On Day 3, he'd want to make it count.
