ENG vs NZ Dream11 Team Prediction, Fantasy Tips: England vs New Zealand 3rd Test
Jamie Overton will make his England debut for the third and final cricket Test against New Zealand from Thursday (June 23) after fellow pacer Jimmy Anderson was ruled out with an ankle injury. Overton’s twin brother, Craig, was also on the team and was an option to replace Anderson, but the only change in the squad at Headingley was the more inexperienced of the England siblings.
England took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. England captain Ben Stokes said Anderson had a swollen ankle, and was not sure he would be healthy enough to play in next month’s Test against India. “Unfortunately Jimmy didn’t do as well as we wanted, so Jamie Overton is going to make his debut this week,” Stokes said.
“It’s unfortunate for Jimmy, but we have a big Test against India as well. I’m not sure how serious it is to be honest.”
Stokes said Jamie Overton offered the ‘point of difference’ because of his extra pace. “He fills a different role than Jimmy,” said Stokes, “but having someone in your back pocket who can bowl at 90 mph is big for us. That’s the only change this week. England.” As tempting as it was to take out both twins while playing for, Jamie was the only change.”
Craig and Jamie Overton were looking to be the first set of twins to play for England.
