Jos Buttler: “great day, sun’s out here at Lord’s and get first use of the wicket. Three changes for England, but still no Roy. He’s getting there, [but] frustratingly still not fit to play. Stokes does indeed sit this out, as Miller suggested, along with Chris Woakes and Gus Atkinson. Harry Brook is back. Carded to bat in the middle order, as is David Willey. While Brydon Carse makes his first appearance of the series.
Tom Latham admits he, too, wanted to bat, but NZ will have to chase for the fourth game running. For us it’s about trying to play our way. There’s been some big scores and slightly different surfaces so we’re going to need to adapt. Two changes for the Black Caps, Matt Henry and Tim Southee coming in for Lockie Ferguson and Trent Boult. Mitchell Santner is still not available, although NZ have said he’s not a worry for the World Cup. Roy needed to play today, and needed a good performance, reckons Peter. Can’t see him getting I the plane now.”
