Jon Lewis.Not just in English conditions either, only game in India v WI in ICC Champions Trophy, typical flat Indian ODI wicket, yet bowled through the first 20 overs, ie powerplay and took 1/35. Generally good in powerplays in Australia also.
Good shout. Bristol is almost identical to the conditions England are struggling with in India. Plus Lewis' form has been great since England broke him.
