New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson is set to miss the second England Test in Nottingham after testing positive for COVID-19 on the night before the second Test. Tom Latham will lead the side in his absence, while Hamish Rutherford has been drafted in as his replacement. As a result of the positive test, Williamson will now begin a five-day isolation period.

Ben Stokes has won the toss and England will bowl first. The hosts are unchanged, with Jack Leach having recovered from his concussion. New Zealand make three modifications – Matt Henry, Henry Nicholls and Michael Bracewell replace Azaz Patel, Kane Williamson and Colin de Grandhomme. Bracewell is making his Test debut.
