England vs New Zealand, 3rd Test Day 1 Live Updates: Stuart Broad struck early for England as Tom Latham was sent off for a duck in the Third Test against New Zealand. New Zealand have recalled Neil Wagner to their side as captain Kane Williamson won the coin toss and opted to play Headingley on Thursday. World Test champions New Zealand were looking to salvage some pride at 2-0 in a three-game series. Star hitter Williamson returned to the team after missing the five-wicket defeat in the second Test at Trent Bridge due to a Covid-19 bout, with left arm tailor Wagner given his first game of the series after towering pacemaker Kyle Jamieson suffered a tour-ending back injury in Nottingham. Matt Henry dropped out of the team, with Michael Bracewell – who made his Trent Bridge debut – preferred ahead of specialist spinner Ajaz Patel. England had already made a forced change to their side with Surrey fast bowler Jamie Overton making his Test debut in place of James Anderson after England’s all-time best Test wicket-taker was ruled out with an ankle injury. Under their new management duo of captain Ben Stokes and red ball coach Brendon McCullum, the former New Zealand captain, England were looking to complete a first home sweep in a run of more than two matches since their 4-0 defeat in India in 2011.
