LEEDS: After Stuart Broad struck early for England on the first day of the third Test at Headingley on Thursday, in-form Daryl Mitchell led New Zealand's revival.At the end of game, New Zealand was 225 for five, with Mitchell 78 not out after his hundreds at Lords and Trent Bridge.The World Test champions fell 2-0 behind in the three-match series after failing to sustain those efforts.Mitchell will only aim to add another ton as the Black Caps look to salvage a series finale victory.Mitchell stayed true after winning the toss under blue skies and on a good pitch, finishing with New Zealand wobbling at 83 for four.In an unbroken stand of 102, Tom Blundell (45 not out) generously supported him once more in this series's third century reunion.Under the new leadership duo of England captain Ben Stokes and Test coach Brendon McCullum, a former New Zealand captain, the team was aiming to make it three victories out of three.Broad dismissed Latham for a sixth-ball duck when he edged straight to Joe Root at the first slip. Williamson drove Broad for four miles on a ground where he had played for Yorkshire, and Young cut a boundary off Jamie Overton, with Surrey's debutant father willing to take over as Anderson's replacement.When left-armer Jack Leach hit his first ball, turning and straightening a delivery, giving opener Young lbw for 20.Broad dismissed Williamson, whose fluent 31 included five fours, as the star batsman edged an excellent leg-cutter to wicketkeeper Ben Foakes as the seamer took his 548th Test wicket.In a rare display of emotion, Williamson took off his glove in displeasure. Devon Conway went on for 26 minutes, driving a full-length Overton ball to put New Zealand in danger at 83 for four.When Henry Nicholls fell into a bizarre state on the stroke of tea, the struggling rugby player had made 19 off 99 balls.Nicholls drove strong at Leach, only for the ball to deflect off a non-striker Mitchells bat and loop gently to Alex Lees at mid-off.Mitchell may have been out for eight days, but England, in one of many poor review choices, decided against challenging Matthew Potts' appeal, with replays confirming that the batsman may have been out for eight. England thought Blundell was caught behind part-time spinner Root for 31 runs, but the batsmans' analysis revealed no contact with the ball.Overton assumed Mitchell had been pinned down the legside by Foakes for 60 minutes after a brief rain break, only to find the batsman had skipped the ball in England's review.England took the new ball as soon as they could, winning 203 for five from 80 overs, but was unable to make another breakthrough.
