EnglandandNew ZealandSet up yet another test Grand stand finish after the third day of seesawNew Zealand 137 came forward and picked up five wickets overnight
The series was much more appealing due to the swaying momentum of the two offensive teams, and this headingley test follows the pattern of the game at Rosebridge and Trentbridge, both taking turns. New Zealand controls Saturday as Kane Williamson approaches the measured half-century before Matthew Potts, Joe Root and Jack Ruetsch each pick up the ticket gates in the evening session to control the host. It looked like it was.
If England can chase New Zealand's total in 4 innings, it will complete the 3-0 series Whitewash and the perfect start to the new regime of captainBen Stokesand head coach. Cut off. Brendon McCullum

England 18-1 (Crawley 4 *, Pope 0 *) Target 296
Communication between ticket gates from the opening round of England Is very bad and is running. I completely ruined it.
OLP Pope comes in at 3 o'clock and runs a leg-by from the second ball of Sauzy's over. Yes, can Crawley take it out of his head and make innings?
He has the edge of his pad inside, but the rest survives.
OUT. Lee runs out (Williamson / Vault) 9. England 17-1
When Crawley departs for a run that is never there, almost confused from the first ball in the vault, Leesends him back to, As the ball flies from the mid-wicket past the stump, he jumps into the ground. The direct hit would have been close.
Crawley was then forced to jam down the bat late with an inswing ball. He intended to leave it at first. He's half appealed when the ball hits his foot, but it's too high and probably too straight.
Oh. Lees isOUT. Crawley tried to get rid of the last ball, but it was a decent connection and well protected by Kane Williamson. Confused with Ran, Lee sent back at the end of the non-striker, but the ball beat him and Vault gathered the bail and whiplashed. Will disappear. Disaster in England
England 17-0 (Lees 9 *, Crawley 4 *) Target 296
It's always like a drama in these England openers.
Lee got four morewhile riding offside on his forefoot. Probably a little more square than intended, but safely run off along the ground.
Connect to the next delivery with a similar shot, but connect directly to the fielder and check the overshoot with a defensive shot.
England 13-0 (Lees 5 *, Crawley 4 *) Target 296
Headingley is a bit windy, but not particularly suitable for swing bowling.
Crawley, a man who hasn't shined yet under Brendon McCallum's "Buzzball" on strike to Trent Boult-the man who caused him in this series (and It suits (last summer). What if the Kent guy had time to get his first big score after a while?
A solid defense that finds the center of the blade each time from the first five balls. It flashes violently on final delivery and cannot resist the drive. This is the shrap edge just above theFOUR slip cordon. In fact, Saudi had a fingertip on it. Crawley takeoff.
England 9-0 (Lees 5 *, Crawley 0 *) Target 296
When Tim Sauchy's first ball circles the wicket and enters Lee's pad, the ball works well with thin legs and a zipper at the border of thefourleg-bys. Move.
I have already cut the target. There are no runs from the rest, so Zack Crawley strikes for the first time.
England 5-0 (Lees 5 *, Crawley 0 *) Target 296
Well, please. Can the UK do it again? Alex Leeds and Zack Crawley chased 296 and started batting.Not convincing, but he is off the mark.
The last ball of the over lies on a single thin leg. From the top 5.

When Jack Ruetsch finished his New Zealand innings, he had 5 furs twice in a row and 10 furs in the match. England needs 296 to win.
