Headingley Leeds Test record and highest innings totals: Leeds will be hosting a Test match after less than a year.
The third Test match of the ongoing New Zealand’s tour of England will be played in Leeds from today. Despite England gaining an unassailable 2-0 lead in a three-match series, expect the dead-rubber to be a gripping one for the next five days.
Headingley, which had hosted both a T20I and a Test last year, will be hosting an international match after less than 12 months. England, who have played 78 out of the 79 Tests played here, have won 35 and lost 25 over the years. New Zealand, on the other hand, have won two and lost five out of their eight Leeds Tests between 1949-2015.
While England have made a solitary change to their Playing XI in the form of debutant Jamie Overton coming in place of injured veteran James Anderson, New Zealand will reveal their Playing XI at the toss today.
