Durham all-rounder Paul Collingwood has passed himself fit following a third injection into his troublesome right shoulder and should be available to bowl medium pace.
"It is going to be the same team that won our last Test in Napier," said captain Michael Vaughan. "Hopefully it will be a similar performance and a similar result."
England came from behind to beat New Zealand 2-1 in their Test series in March. They sealed their series win with a 121-run win in Napier.
The match at Lord's is the first of a three-Test series.
Team: Alastair Cook, Andrew Strauss, Michael Vaughan (capt), Kevin Pietersen, Ian Bell, Paul Collingwood, Tim Ambrose (wkt), Stuart Broad, Ryan Sidebottom, James Anderson, Monty Panesar
