ENG vs NZ Live: Stuart Broad got a wicket early on Day 1.© AFP

England vs New Zealand, 3rd Test Day 1 Highlights: In-form Daryl Mitchell powered New Zealand’s revival after Stuart Broad struck early for England on the first day of the third Test at Headingley on Thursday. New Zealand were 225 for five at close of play, with Mitchell 78 not out following his hundreds at Lord’s and Trent Bridge. Those inspired efforts were insufficient to prevent the World Test champions falling 2-0 behind in the three-match series. But Mitchell will aim to add another ton as the Black Caps try to salvage a victory in the series finale. Broad, England’s spearhead after James Anderson was ruled out with an ankle injury, removed Tom Latham in the first over of the day and then captured the prize wicket of New Zealand captain Kane Williamson during a return of two for 45 in 17 overs. (SCORECARD)
