The England cricket team will host New Zealand in a four-match T20 international series starting on Wednesday, August 30.

As per the New Zealand tour of England 2023 schedule, the first T20I of the series will be played at the Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street, County Durham. The two teams will later travel to Manchester for the second T20I at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground on September 1.

The third match of the series is scheduled to be played at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground on September 3, before the fourth and final T20I is played at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.

The world’s second-ranked men’s T20I side has announced their 15-man squad to be led by Jos Buttler. Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Sam Curran and Adi Rashid are some of the other established T20I players in the England squad.

Ahead of the series, uncapped right-arm pacer John Turner has been ruled out due to an injury. Brydon Carse has been called into England's squad as Turner’s replacement.

On the other hand, the New Zealand cricket team will head into the England series after beating United Arab Emirates (UAE) 2-1 in a three-match T20I series in Dubai.

Tim Southee will once again captain New Zealand in the upcoming four-match T20I series.

Ranked third in the ICC Men’s T20I rankings, New Zealand will miss the services of their star all-rounder James Neesham, who will return to New Zealand to be alongside his wife ahead of the birth of their first child.

In the absence of Neesham, New Zealand have added all-rounder Cole McConchie in their T20I squad. 

The visitors will also be without their talisman Kane Williamson, who is yet to recover from his serious knee injury.
