The left-handed batter stepped out of the crease and played a well-timed shot from the left-arm spinner’s bowling. While the shot seemed good enough to head towards the boundary, Nicholls did not have luck on his side. The ball ended up hitting non-striker Mitchell’s bat and deflected straight into Alex Lees’ hands, who was standing at mid-on.

Talking about the match, New Zealand were given a major boost before the match as skipper Kane Williamson returned to the playing XI after recovering from COVId-19. The visitors won the toss and chose to bat in a bid to avoid a whitewash having lost the first two games in the series.
For the third successive Test match in the series, Mitchell scored a century and has taken England above the 300-run mark before being dismissed for a knock of 109. Wicket-keeper batter Tom Blundell continued his fine form and scored a half-century. Both Stuart Broad and Leach have taken three wickets so far.
