Mar.12 - SportLand: Liam Livingstone has promised to "take the bull by the horns" if he gets the chance to make his Test debut on England's tour of New Zealand.
The Lancashire batsman is the only new face in the England party for the two matches, their first Tests since a 4-0 Ashes defeat was completed in January.
"Sometimes I have to get in the fight to get the best out of myself," he told BBC Sport.
"That's something I've always done and I don't see it changing."
The 24-year-old may get the opportunity to impress in two warm-up matches against a New Zealand XI, the first of which begins at 22:00 GMT on Tuesday in Hamilton.
