England face New Zealand at Headingley looking to complete a whitewash in the three-match Test series after a thrilling victory in the second Test at Trent Bridge.

Jonny Bairstow’s swashbuckling innings will live long in the memory and the Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes era is off to a flying start. Here they look to reassert their dominance, but the Black Caps will be keen to bounce back. The tourists have been boosted by captain Kane Williamson’s return from Covid. Stokes, too, plays after an illness scare, while James Anderson misses out through injury, meaning there is a debut for pace bowler Jamie Overton.

“My message is clear and simple,” said Stokes. “Let’s try to progress from what we did at Trent Bridge. It’s hard to put into words how we do that this week, but I said ‘let’s feel like we’re in the entertainment business and not the sports business’. I feel like people want to come and watch the brand of cricket we’re playing. My challenge to the lads this week is to go and do it again.”
