England had a great morning session on Day 1 of the current Third Test against New Zealand at Headingley in Leeds on Thursday. Trailing the series 2-0, New Zealand opted to strike after winning the coin toss, hoping for a good start. However, veteran pacer Stuart Broad delivered the opening blow in the game’s very first innings, dismissing New Zealand fly-half and vice-captain Tom Latham on the final delivery. The veteran pacer then added another wicket to his tally, after Jack Leach got the better of fellow Kiwi opener Will Young.

Much like Latham, Broad played incredibly under Kane Williamson before getting the better of the Kiwi skipper on the final delivery of 23rd. Broad produced a full delivery on the first pitch, which was successfully left by Williamson.

He then threw three trotting out-swingers, before throwing a sharp delivery to confuse Williamson.

And, on the final delivery, Broad threw a full-length ball, teasing Williamson to drive.

The New Zealand captain did just that, but the ball managed to get a thin outside edge off his bat, and Ben Foakes made no mistakes behind the stumps.

Jamie Overton picked his first scalp in Test cricket after castling Devon Conway to give New Zealand their fourth shot on Day 4.
