Cricket – Livingstone earns England place

England have handed a first Test call-up to Lancashire batsman Liam Livingstone for the two-Test series against New Zealand in March. Mark Wood is also in the squad but Jake Ball, Gary Ballance and Tom Curran all miss out. James Vince and Mark Stoneman are included even though they both struggled in the recent 4-0 Ashes defeat to Australia. England face New Zealand in a day-night Test in Auckland, which starts on 22nd March, while the second Test is scheduled to begin in Christchurch eight days later. Meanwhile, England are 2/1 with bet365 to win the one-day series against Australia and 6/4 to triumph in the first ODI between the two teams on Sunday.
