New Zealand’s first match against England will be at Lord’s on 2 June and then at Edgbaston from 10 June. New Zealand Cricket has announced a 20-member squad for this series and the World Test Championship Final (India vs New Zealand).
Rabindra, 21, is one of New Zealand’s most promising and talented players. The left-arm batsman and left-arm spinner made his debut for Wellington at the age of 18 and has scored three centuries and two half-centuries at first-class level, including a New Zealand A-century against the West Indies.
Duffy took four wickets for 33 runs to make his T20 international debut against Pakistan at Eden Park this year, for which he was named Man of the Match.
Captain Kane Williamson, all-rounder Mitchell Santner and fast bowlers Kyle Jameson and Trent Bolt may be out of the first Test but it will depend on their Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) commitments.
