England spinner out of New Zealand Test with concussion


England spinner Jack Leach has been withdrawn from the first Test against New Zealand at Lord’s after suffering symptoms of concussion.

The 30-year-old took a heavy fall while chasing a ball to the boundary in the sixth over of the first day.

Lancashire leg-spinner Matt Parkinson has been called up as the replacement and will make his Test debut.

The 25-year-old will travel from Manchester and join the match later on Thursday.
