Rain rain, go away! Every spectator is chanting this phrase right now. With an enthralling Test series betwixt England and New Zealand on the horizon, the Rain Gods relentlessly blessed London on Friday, ensuring that no play could be possible. It rained cats and dogs in the capital city while there was little rain elsewhere in England yesterday. With more rain predicted for the remaining two days, don't be flabbergasted if this match ends up in a draw, thwarting New Zealand's ICC WTC Final preparations. 

Who are the favourites?

England are the odds-on favourites to win this game. Despite allowing New Zealand to score 378 runs in the first innings, Root and Burns' swashbuckling combination might put an end to the deficit on Day 4. They will face a ferocious Kiwi squad, which qualified for the debut ICC World Test Championship Final but struggled in foreign venues during the 2019-21 WTC season. The favourable conditions would be welcomed by New Zealand, but the Barmy Army would be back in the stands after 1.5 years. They would be crucial in raising the enthusiasm of the English team.

Scorecard Predictions

England would score 440/10 by Stumps on Day 4.

Toss Prediction

Given the rather green pitch, which will benefit the pacers throughout the match, expect the skipper to win the toss and bowl first. The side that bats last has an advantage if there is cloud cover and rain on the way.

Market Tips and Odds (as of 11:00 p.m. IST 4th June 2021 )

England to win the match (Betway - 3.20)

Expect a nail-biter, with England prevailing by a razor-thin margin.

Despite New Zealand's 378 points, England battled their way back on Day 2 and ended at 111/2 at Stumps.

To conquer the visitors from the Antipodes, the home team possesses a wealth of match-winning abilities.

Betway Predictions- 

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

Despite their failure as an opening pair in the first innings, Rory Burns and Dominic Sibley form a formidable Test opening tandem for England.

These young modern players have enjoyed a fantastic start to their Test careers, both at home and abroad.

They want to show their supremacy early in the summer and stake a claim to the Ashes.


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

England is on course to surmount New Zealand's 378 runs.

England's bowling and batting lineups are capable of tormenting and punishing the visiting Kiwis.

Expect the English bowlers to limit the Kiwi batsmen to a modest first-innings total, which they will easily surpass.


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

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

He recently struck two double tonnes in two consecutive Test series, the first in Sri Lanka and the second in India.

His involvement in this game might be crucial.

Root is a stalwart in England's middle order.

He was not-out in the 40s at Stumps on Day 2. On Day 4, he'd want to make a good impression.
