Ajaz Patel, one of just three players in test cricket history to capture 10 wickets in a single innings, will be back in the New Zealand team for the three-test visit to England next month. When Patel took 10-119 in New Zealand’s second test against India in Mumbai in December, he joined England’s Jim Laker and India’s Anil Kumble in a select club.

Since then, the left-armer hasn’t pitched in a game. When New Zealand went for all-pace attacks against Bangladesh and South Africa, he was left out of the home series. For the England series, Patel will be New Zealand’s front-line spinner. New Zealand unveiled an expanded 20-man team for the tour on Wednesday, with the goal of covering the early absence of players competing in the Indian Premier League. New Zealand’s warm-up matches will be canceled, and the team will be reduced to 15 players before the first test against England on June 2 at Lord’s.

New Zealand defeated England in a test series last year in England, preparatory to New Zealand’s victory over India in the first World Test Championship final. Thirteen of the fifteen players that competed in the series are now part of the current squad. Ross Taylor, a veteran batsman, and B.J. Watling, a wicketkeeper, have both retired since then.
