“It’s a really exciting opportunity for Devon,” Williamson, the New Zealand captain, said. “He’s been involved with the team over the last year in the white-ball formats and done extremely well.”He’s an experienced player. He’s played a lot of first-class cricket and he gets his opportunity to make his debut at the home of cricket.”New Zealand have narrowed their options down to a 12-man squad ahead of the game. The final selection will come down to a choice between the spin of Mitchell Santner and the extra seamer in Matt Henry or Colin de Grandhomme, though the warm weather in London in recent days would appear to have improved Santner’s chances.”There’s a lot of hot weather around and the pitch seems to be changing fairly quickly,” Williamson said. “We’ll leave the final XI until tomorrow.”Devon ConwayNew ZealandEnglandEngland vs New ZealandNew Zealand in England
