Unfortunately Jimmy has not pulled up as well as we would have liked. So Jamie Overton is going to make his debut. It's unfortunate for Jimmy but we've got a massive Test match against India to look to as well. It's great Jamie gets the opportunity to represent England.
England skipper Ben Stokes has confirmed Jimmy Anderson will miss the third Test vs New Zealand with an ankle injury, as Jamie Overton comes in for his debut.
Speaking to Sky Sports on Wednesday, Stokes said: "Unfortunately Jimmy (Anderson) has not pulled up as well as we would have liked. So Jamie Overton is going to make his debut this week.
It's unfortunate for Jimmy but we've obviously got a massive Test match against India next week to look to as well.
He didn't pull up as well, so it's great Jamie gets the opportunity to represent England.
In episode 20, season one of cult TV hit Arrested Development, some of the Bluth Company assets are unfrozen leading to Michael, head and signatory by virtue of being the only competent Bluth, fielding requests for cash from various family members. At the end of his tether by the time his brother, Gob, and brother-in-law, Tobias, get to him, he suggests the pair come up with a business proposal to earn their money.
Gob and Tobias retreat to a local coffee shop for a brainstorming session that goes nowhere. But as they go to leave, Michael walks in and, before they tell him of their fruitless conversation, he commends them for their initiative as he had always been interested in opening a coffee shop. They say nothing in response, and slowly back out of the shop, wary of ruining the perception they a) have a plan, and b) know how to pull it off. A bluff that lasts barely a week when all they managed to come up with is the name - "Gobias". As in, "go buy us" a coffee.
We are probably not at that stage with "Bazball" just yet. But as remarkable as the men's Test team have been these last two weeks, it's hard not to shake the feeling its veneration, perhaps even the ethos itself, has been bestowed upon them without a thorough idea of what it actually entails. And as much as the players can talk up the cleansing powers of Brendon McCullum and the contagious brilliance of Ben Stokes, the cynics are still wondering if this emperor has simply gone on a spending spree.
As such, Headingley provides as much of an opportunity to reinforce the method behind the mantra or pull at a rogue thread on the invisible garment. The trick for England is to react calmly whatever the result: not get too full of of themselves with a 3-0 win, and keep faith in these principles even if New Zealand get on the board - two things previous iterations of this England team have not done exactly done well.
For now there remains a humility within the squad that there is more learning to be done. They know the adrenalin shot of a Stokes-Bairstow partnership won't always come off, or that chasing down scores of 299 inside 50 overs of the final day means all the ills of the last few years have been cured.
