After securing the series win in the second Test Stokes and England will be hoping to make it 3-0 in the final match.

Some memorable batting performances have seen England fight to a 2-0 lead against New Zealand. With the series win already wrapped up the home side will be hoping to dish out a whitewash defeat to Brendon McCullum in his first series as head coach.

England batting with renewed confidence

Having won the first two Tests England will be hoping to make it a clean sweep and are favourites to do so at Evens to win the third Test. Both teams have looked more solid with the bat as the series has progressed with the second Test providing the most runs ever scored in a Test match at Trent Bridge. With a risk of rain over Headingly looking increasingly likely the match is just 13/5 to end in a draw. Off the back of two losses New Zealand are the underdogs at 5/2 to win in Leeds.

The first two Tests played host to some incredible batting performances with seven 100s being scored so far. With Joe Root scoring two of these he heads into the third Test as the 7/4 favourite to be England’s top batsman in the first innings. He is 11/4 to score another century in the first innings at his home ground.

Having both scored impressive centuries in the second Test, Ollie Pope and Jonny Bairstow are fancied to put some runs on the board at Headingly with both at 9/2 to be England’s top batsman. Bairstow will be another player hoping to score some vital runs on his home ground.

The Headingly Test sees the return of star batsman Kane Williamson for the Kiwis. Having only managed a total of 17 runs in the first Test and after missing the second, Williamson will be hoping to finally make his mark on the series. He is favourite to be New Zealand’s top run scorer in the first innings at 3/1. Despite being New Zealand’s top run scorer in the series so far Daryl Mitchell is 11/2 sixth-favourite to be his countries’ top run scorer.

What to expect from the bowlers

Jimmy Anderson is England’s top wicket taker so far and the constantly reliable swing bowler is the favourite at 2/1 to be his side’s top wicket taker in the first innings at Headingly. Matthew Potts has also impressed on his debut series picking up 10 wickets in the series so far and at 10/3 to be England top bowler in the first innings, he’s expected to add to that total.

Trent Boult has been New Zealand’s stand-out bowler taking 12 of their 30 wickets so far in the series and he is expected to continue that form as the 9/4 favourite to be his side’s top bowler in the first innings. Despite only taking one wicket in the last three innings pace bowler Tim Southee will be hoping for an upturn in form and he is second favourite behind Boult at 5/2.
