10.15am: Good morning – for some

Hello, and welcome to our coverage from the opening day at Edgbaston. We have some news for you first up, with New Zealand revealing that wicket-keeper BJ Watling is a late withdrawal after failing to overcome a sore back. The injury has troubled Watling in the past and although it has improved over the past 24 hours, it hasn’t improved enough for him to be confident of making it through a full Test behind the stumps. As a result, Tom Blundell will take the gloves and bat at No. 6 in his 11th Test.
