A gripping day of Test cricket at Headingley comes to an end. England, asked to bowl, got off to an excellent start with Stuart Broad removing Tom Latham in the very first over. The visitors lost both their openers in the first hour. Kane Williamson looked in decent touch but was set-up nicely by Broad. England continued to exert their dominance in the post-lunch session and managed to snuff out two wickets, which included the freak dismissal of Henry Nicholls. However, the in-form Daryl Mitchell and Tom Blundell once again dovetailed to frustrate the England bowlers as they recorded their third century stand in as many matches.
