England wins toss, bowls in test vs. New Zealand

England captain Alastair Cook won the toss and chose to bowl Friday in the deciding third test at Eden Park.
The first and second tests both ended in rain-affected draws but the forecast for Auckland is for five days of clear weather, raising the possibility of a result which will decide the three-test series.
England made one change to its lineup for the match, naming Yorkshire's Jonny Bairstow to play his sixth test as a replacement for Kevin Pietersen who has a knee injury.
New Zealand named an unchanged lineup and both teams elected to go into the match with three specialist seamers and one spinner.
