The 2nd Test between England and New Zealand gets under way Friday morning at Headingley, with the Black Caps looking to come back from a crushing 124 run defeat in the 1st Test at Lords. Having prefaced their arrival on English shores with particularly bullish predictions of a “whitewash” over the two-Test series (we’re looking at you, Richard Hadley), New Zealand will have to put up a stronger showing in Leeds if they’re to justify their current ranking as the 3rd best Test nation on the planet.

For England, the 2nd Test is all about maintaining momentum. With an Ashes Series a little more than a month away, Alistair Cook’s side must continue to put as much distance as possible between themselves and memories of their woeful T20 World Cup performance and sub-par winter tour of the West Indies.

It will also be an opportunity for England’s players to impress new Head Coach Trevor Bayliss, who was appointed on Tuesday following the sacking of Peter Moores earlier in the month.

In the UK, Sky Sports subscribers will be able to catch comprehensive coverage of all five days on Sky Sports 2 from Friday May 29th, with each day’s coverage starting at 10:30am BST.
