Trent Bridge, The second Test between England and New Zealand is scheduled to be played today (June 10) at Trent Bridge, Nottingham and New Zealand has already suffered a major setback. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has been ruled out of the second Test after coming back positive.
New Zealand coach Gary Stead has confirmed this. Hamish Rutherford has been named in the squad to replace Ken Williamson. In the absence of Williamson, Tom Latham will lead the team. The Kiwis are trailing 0-1 after losing the Lord’s Test.
