Nichols hit a straight drive off spinner Jack Leach, but the ball hit fellow batsman Daryl Mitchell, who was standing on the non-striker’s edge, and went into mid-off. Alex Lees was standing at mid-off who took the catch and was dismissed by the umpire. Leach celebrated the day by taking another wicket.

what are the rules
Commentator Nasir Hussain said as soon as Nicholls was dismissed, “How did it happen? Mitchell was standing on the non-striker’s edge, trying to take the ball away, the umpire trying to move away and the ball went into mid-off. I can’t believe it.’ Explaining the rules, the MCC wrote, “Under Act 126.96.36.199, if the ball is caught by a player hitting the wicket, umpire, other fielder, runner or batsman, he is at bat.” The player is considered out.
how was the game of the day
By lunch, New Zealand had lost three wickets. After lunch, Devon Conway (26) was bowled by Jamie Overton, who took his maiden Test wicket on debut. When Nicholls was on 10, he was given a lifeline, but England captain Ben Stokes declined to comment.
Mitchell has scored two centuries and a half-century in the series and is on his way to play a long innings. New Zealand, trailing 0-2 in the three-match series, won the toss and decided to bat first. But the first wicket fell in the first over as Tom Latham, who could not even open the account. Will Young scored 20 and became the first victim after Leach was dismissed leg first. Captain Kane Williamson (31) was dismissed by Stuart Broad before lunch.
